A body in the library or mastering patterns of known test fraud
Track: Security, Records and Data Management
Just as crimes can leave compelling evidence of foul play, test fraud can leave compelling evidence that test security was violated. Over the course of time, certain patterns in the data have emerged as being strongly indicative of test fraud. When these patterns emerge, a testing program should strongly consider investigating the anomalous patterns in order to determine the correct course of action. These patterns are analogous to finding a body in the library, missing valuables after the door has been shattered, or having your automobile vandalized.
Experts who have studied these patterns will discuss them and how they determine the correct response when they are observed. The primary objective of the presentation is to assist credentialing organizations know the data that should be collected, assembled, and presented in order to assess whether known patterns of test fraud are present.
