I’ve taken proxied exams many times across my life. The modern version is remote, and you rotate your laptop around the room to show nobody is there, and no cheatsheets are on the table or walls. A recent ruling states that the 4th Amendment protects students from a requirement to show the proctor the room where the test is occuring. I’m dumbfounded, as this reduces testing to a meaningless exercise. I was further amazed that there are multiple organizations that are pushing back against e-proctoring. It’s actually far better than going in person to some strange office, which costs far more to all of us.

A student was asked to show his room to a remote proctor during an online exam last spring. A judge has ruled that this request violated his Fourth Amendment rights.
