Detecting cheating in unproctored internet testing settings using CUSUMs (and more)


Unproctored Internet Testing (UIT) is becoming more popular in personnel recruitment and selection. A drawback of UIT is that cheating is easy and, therefore, a proctored test is often administered after an UIT procedure. To detect inconsistent test scores from UIT a cumulative sum procedure (CUSUM) is proposed. This procedure is applied to empirical data from an adaptive computer-based test in a real personnel selection context. The usefulness of the CUSUM is illustrated and the unique contribution of the CUSUM to existing procedures is discussed.
