There, too, appears to be a fundamental flaw in the kind of testing that AI surveillance supposedly protects. As my brilliant coworker Emily Alford pointed out, reliance on memorization to prove mastery of a subject doesn’t mean anything... unless you’re a doctor or technical professional who requires a certain level of ingrained comprehension to get shit done. All tests should be open book (because LIFE is OPEN BOOK!). At any rate, schools shouldn’t have such controls over their students. Period. Remote learning shouldn’t feel more like Big Brother breathing down your neck than an alternative education, and taking a test shouldn’t fill the generation most susceptible to mental health concerns with needless anxiety.
