Outlier has a zero-tolerance policy for cheating. We use online proctoring software to detect cheating and ensure test integrity. Any misrepresentation of coursework is considered academic dishonesty and may result in:
(1) failure of the course without a refund and
(2) a lifetime ban from Outlier.
Rest assured, Outlier students are not at the mercy of cold, unfeeling AI technology. Outlier uses a hybrid approach to proctor exams—with both AI proctoring software and human review to ensure that academic integrity is maintained in all of our courses, while also avoiding false negatives.
Our AI software only flags *possible* breaches of academic integrity. The Outlier team reviews each and every possible problem flagged by the software to make a determination.
