Students getting credit for testing out of lessons

When I assign a lesson for practice, I want them to do all 5 lessons. Some students are "testing out" of the unit and my teacher page shows COMPLETE. I want them to do the practice, not test out of the lesson. How can I do this without letting them take a short cut? I can click on each student and see what they did and what dates, but I have over 100 students and I assign 10 lessons per month. This is tedious for me as the teacher.

I guess it is time to introduce each 1st-2nd week a written test :-)

Or maybe you should tell them in advance that they well be tested on all the material they are learning and be graded?!

Sometimes we knew 1-2 days ahead that we are going to write a test and that we actually had to learn all the material from the day before (or more).


If they are good enough to test out, why not let them? :)


Because they need practice. Language is a skill which requires working with the vocabulary in different contexts. Taking a test with another tab open to google translate is what they are doing to cheat the process.


If they are cheating, won't they do that either way? And if they don't but already know it won't they be bored and lose interest?


They are not all cheating, only a few. Some just want the points for the gradebook and are not interested in learning. Most are doing it correctly.
