Henry Jenkins on open-book exams

Mr. Jenkin’s thoughts in this article were a different way to look at tests in the classrooms. Taking paperless test’s isn’t a bad idea until the topic of actually trying to keep the cheating down to a minimum. If kids had the option to use the website without being watched by the instructor, then more children would cheat than not. The test and quizzes are for the teachers to know exactly what their students have studied or what they are struggling with. This will be broken if more paperless test and quizzes are taken. The thing that interested me was the fact that he brought up the idea of students being confused between open note and open laptop. I think that this would be a legitimate problem with this topic.
