typID is an online web application for use by students and teachers to work on and submit homework assignments. By analyzing students' typing patterns, typID verifies the user's identity, similar to a two-factor authentication method. When a user account is first created, students will be required to type in a predetermined passage under teacher supervision. This initial dataset trains the pattern recognition algorithm for that specific user. After, when students work on homework assignments using the web app, typID constantly cross-checks the user's current typing habits with the trained typing habits. typID will allow educators to ensure their students' integrity, and as a result, allow students flexibility in where they work.
