Abstract and Keywords

The lack of adequate test security for important exams is a growing worldwide problem. As tests are relied upon globally more and more for critical educational and work-related decisions, there is a corresponding increase in attempts to steal test content or to cheat on tests. These threats to the valid use of tests have led to important ethical issues within the testing community. Five ethical dilemmas are presented, along with specific recommendations for resolving these issues.

Keywords: ethics, testing, assessment, global, international, technology, test security, cheating, piracy
