Proctor U promises

On-line education oversight provider Proctor U announces a student bill of rights, “in support of academic honesty, privacy and data security for students who complete remote and digital work and assessment”

This could calm students at the University of Queensland, where the student union worries Proctor U running remote exams, will put peoples’ data at risk.

But it probably won’t. P U’s article three is; “entities engaged in remote academic work or assessments are compliant with laws and regulations related to student privacy and student data.”

But article six promises; “the right to understand why data is collected and retained and whether it is disseminated.”

And while article seven adds, “the expectation that data collection is specific and limited,” that may not be precise enough for all.
