An assigned seating scheme for exams, particularly in large class settings, has many benefits both administratively for the instructor and pedagogically for the student. Assurance of quality with respect to academic integrity is maintained as is the security of the exam.

In just over six minutes you will be convinced that assigned seating for exams is indeed the best thing since sliced bread!
