This MENG thesis implements a security system for a classroom presentation system called the Classroom Learning Partner (CLP). The goal of the security system is to prevent cheating on electronic quizzes. CLP is a system that uses Tablet PCs in the classroom to enhance learning and encourage interaction between the instructor and students. The instructor creates exercises which are displayed on slides on the students' Tablet PCs. The students complete the exercises and submit them to the instructor and to a central database. The security implementation makes it possible to extend this framework for electronic quiz administration. This thesis discusses current cheating prevention methodologies and extends them to account for electronic quiz-taking scenarios. The basis of the security system is SQL Server authentication for authentication to a central database, and SSL for encryption of network traffic.
