I am looking for an opinion here. We were looking at setting up a test for our students to do and thought that the best solution was to make use of the assignment module since it offered us with the option to have students confirm they were ready to submit the work, check that the work was the correct submission, and then check the box that asks them to confirm that the work is their own.
The only problem that I see at the end is that after they have done all this, they can still open the file, theoretically save it locally, and pass it on to other students doing the assignment later on. We do not want them to be able to do this.
Now ok, I hear you say use the quiz module along with the written text option, but that doesn't allow them to confirm that the work is their own.
It just seems to me to be a little odd that if you have asked students to go through the hoops of stating that the work is their own, why not lock the work and prevent any further access to it? There are plenty of other options that you could set that allow students to look at their work again in less critical situations, but in this one I would like to be able to declare the work finished, no longer changeable etc.
As I say, does anyone else have a take on this?
