New research at Pace University’s Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems has found a way to detect cheating students taking online exams. The U.S. Department of Defense has shown interest in the research as a possible aid in its ongoing battle against computer hacking and cybercrimes. Through keystroke and stylometry biometrics, a software program that records a person’s typing patterns and linguistic style, the key-logger application can remember the behavior of a test-taker.
