Any discussion about wearables in higher education quickly progresses to the age-old question: Can you tell by how some-one is dressed that they are cheating?

Would your exam invigilators know if students were wearing google glasses? How long before there is no more need to write formulae on your sleeve, you’ll  be able to just use your cufflink to scroll down?  Can you tell how long there is to go on a cheating watch?

It may be that we have to give up entirely on the idea that closed book exams are done in sealed rooms with no extra help.

Or we could do exams in the nude. Or scrubs. Or in special orange exam survival jumpsuits. Good thing we have a costume design degree.
