-I can claim he cheated, but I can't prove it. “I then have to classify the AI-generated tasks,” says Tom Vidar Moen-Olsen.
A teacher at Hammerfest Senior High School in Finnmark says cheating among students with artificial intelligence has become a big problem.
He no longer wants to grade tests, so teachers can have more control over cheating detection using artificial intelligence.
– I made a personal choice and said that we can't do things on PC right now. “We can't do any kind of presentation on a computer, we have to do things with pen and paper,” he says.
Moen Olsen believes this sets a person back 20 years when it comes to choosing a method. He could no longer evaluate the in-depth, time-consuming assignments he used to give students.
-I have to take what I know students benefit from the most in order to progress towards the university level.
Tempting to cheat
Student Amond Froning thinks it's perfectly fine to use pen and paper.
-I think it's a lot of fun to write by hand on history tests.
He believes that AI is causing many people to skip class.
Mina Orud tells of fellow students who achieved better grades using KI, compared to others who worked for a long time on a task, without using KI.
– It's happened several times. I understand that people feel frustrated. The work you are doing is not good enough. When there are simpler ways to do it, she says, it's obviously tempting.
Big dark numbers
A new survey conducted on behalf of Education newsIt shows that 58 percent of teachers in Norwegian secondary schools have caught students cheating using AI. One of the teachers is Moen Olsen.
-I've had students who acknowledged it and students who never acknowledged it, insisting it was their own work.
Moyne Olsen believes that there are great dark personalities. It is believed that the extensive use of artificial intelligence reduces the level of knowledge among students.
– Students know that in five minutes using AI you can do what would take a week of research and writing. They do not learn what they were supposed to learn, and the level of knowledge decreases.
Tom Jamback, second vice president of the Education Association, says educators across the country are calling for guidelines and regulations for AI in schools.
– The exam is quickly approaching and final grades must be determined. It is therefore important for teachers and students that these grades are determined as fair as possible.
– Our shop supervisors report that working with guidelines and organizing development should be given high priority by national authorities, so that teachers are not left alone in the classroom with these important questions, he says.
Frustration was great among the Finnmark faculty. Last year, Moen Olsen and other teachers began looking for a program to take back control in the classroom.
They went a long way in negotiations with a larger Norwegian company, but when they sent it to the county council, the process stalled for two months.
– We have pushed the ball to the finish line, all they have to do is finish the contract and sign, says Moen Olsen.
Positive for agreement
Toni Elisabeth Havardsrud is Assistant Director of Education at Finnmark County Municipality. It confirms that they handled the negotiations with the company.
She explained that a working group had been established to consider guidelines for key informants in schools in Finnmark, and discussed the agreement.
-We are very positive about such an agreement.
She says it's important to reach agreement on whether this is what will help schools take control of AI in the classroom.
On Wednesday, the agreement was discussed with the supervisors of the main store in Finnmark.
– In order to be able to turn off the AI, we will use Inspera as a program. They will then be purchased and installed in senior secondary schools in Finnmark.
Håvardsrud says they will put the program into effect as soon as possible.
Department Director at the Directorate of Education, Øystein Nielsen, says that there is no doubt that artificial intelligence challenges many elements in schools. He completely understands teachers who use pen and paper.
– We have to learn good ways to deal with artificial intelligence, says Nielsen.
– The country is preparing to implement the European Union agreement artificial intelligence law, First attempt to legislate artificial intelligence. Norway will be there too.
There will be national advice from the Directorate of Education.
– When it comes to careers advice and how schools deal with key information, we will have that at the end of February.
