I’d like to give my class a test on Replit. The test will consist of a programming assignment, which they will need to code on Replit. I’m trying to assess whether Replit is up for the task.
Is it possible for me to turn off, either permanently or for the duration of the test, my students’ ability to use Replit’s AI code writing assistant? If not, is it at least possible to check whether the assistant was used?
Is it possible for me to turn off, either permanently or for the duration of the test, my students’ ability to communicate with each other and share code via Replit?
That’s not something Replit can control, though. If your students have a way to communicate outside of Replit, then that’s not something Replit can change.
Hi @itaib , welcome to the forums!
Yes, if you look at the file’s history, you can tell it us written by AI if a chunk if code appears at one tume.
or use a recorder like to record the user’s screens to see if they used GW or attempting to communicate with each other.
By using windows button+alt+R, you can record the user’s screens
if the user stops the recording, it can probably mean they are attempting to cheat.
If you may think that watching the recording for over 10 students is tiring, you should probably check if the file is there or not ( the recording ). And make sure that it is around the duration ( time ) that you had given to the students.
If that wasn’t enough, check the history, if you clear the history, you should see a ‘history’ on recently closed tabs, so that could be a sign that they are cheating.
You should attempt to block ai websites like
Crear.ai ( uses openai )
chatgpt ( openai )
and other websites.
recording… as I mentioned above, using recording can solve all these problems.
I think you missed out something.
Ghostwriter provides hints as you code, so they can see it and know what to do, but you can’t just assume they weren’t already going to do that or something similar so if is definitely a problem.
And Phind. And TWAGPT. And probably like a hundred more sites. Can’t forget that one unblocker Repl that I’ve flagged multiple times that has gotten TIPS.
You can get rid of Ghostwriter permanently by not purchasing a Pro plan or using cycles to purchase Ghostwriter. Other than that, I don’t know of a way to get rid of it. Ghostwriter shows as an option for me but when I click it I am asked to upgrade to use it. Have you checked to see if that is the case for your students?
