Monitor from Behind


June 23, 2009

“I tend to monitor test takers from the back of the classroom instead of the front.  First, I get a bird's eye view of the whole class and can catch the stray eyeball or suspicious hand movements.  Second, since I’m behind everyone, no one knows if I’m looking at specific students who look guilty, so they can't claim that I’m picking on the trouble makers. I'm also a big believer in multiple test versions, though I'll mix it up between giving identical tests and different tests. Lastly, my students have desks with storage spaces underneath the desk surface so I ask the students to turn their desks around on test day. Students place all non-test materials under their chair rather than just on the floor next to them, where eyes have easier access.”
