Cheating is an issue that affects more than just the student doing it, no matter the format of the assessment being cheated on. Take-home exams provide more flexibility for the instructor and student than regular proctored exams, but it is that lack of proctoring during the exam that makes cheating trickier to detect -- students may meet up outside of the classroom and inappropriately collaborate on these tests even though they are to be done individually. Examinator aims to detect cheating on Canvas take-home exams by examining the times at which students view questions and comparing them with other students' times to find any exam attempts that have suspiciously similar timestamps for each question.
