Online examinations and their security with navigation control

Published

on

Since our movement into the online examination ecosystem, test takers go on to showcase exceptional levels of creativity when it comes to the question on how to crack an exam. In fact there has to be a visible transformation on how candidates plan to pass the exams with flying colours. In the midst of this the candidates end up resorting to some common ways where they end up cheating during an exam

  • Impersonation- Once you use an impersonator or a proxy opting for online exams is a common type of cheating. Students are bound to leverage with the inability of the invigilator to figure out the real exam test takers.
  • External help – you might end up seeking help from friends or relatives who might be sitting beside the monitor. Holding placards with answers is another way where you can cheat during an exam
  • Employment of digital device- smartphones, Bluetooth devices are some of the common ways by which you can cheat during the course of an online exam. They are put to use in order to surf on the web or when you receive information.

Such assertions do not indicate acts of dishonesty in any manner. A proctored exam is going to be of immense help during the course of an exam. A common perception exists that cheating in an online exam is a lot easier than a traditional exam. In a way students employ tactics so they have to succeed academically without the need to be working hard.

But with the use of technology the exams are bound to become cheat free. The question that come to the fore is how honest is the person who is appearing for an exam than merely answering the exam. With the use of proctoring technologies you are in a position to cope up with this issue and the robust features enable the institutes to secure their online examination while maintaining integrity.

Another point of consensus is how it is possible to remote monitor things on what happens in the backdrop of a computer screen. There is no need for them to be aware on what is happening in the backdrop. But still the hack list that is adopted by students works out to be expensive. Still this logic does not hold any value and cheating is a common act.

The type of cheating on the screen

Copy paste

In a conventional exam one of the common types of cheating works out to be copy paste. Be it keeping the answers already who are in document mode or the study material from a separate document, such traditional forms of cheating have gone on to evoke positive response among the students. To be glued to the screen is also a way of misleading an invigilator who does not possess any type of information while observing the screen. He is not going to flag it off as a major cause of concern.

Mirror and screen sharing

When you are sitting for an exam from a remote location, candidates often end up relying on multiple software and the use of mirror apps does appear to be one of them. By the use of this app it allows another person access to the screen of the computer and they can give you answers. Even the students are known to be using Google docs during the course of tests where they go on to review or edit the response of other person and then share it with the invigilators.

Online browsing

With the power of the internet online cheating has gone on to become a walk in the park. An individual who relies on an unfair means is going to switch from an exam, as it can be the use of  various websites , social media sites or other sources choices to locate answers of their choice. Just you have to past the answers on to the URL and figure out the best solution from where you can plagiarize the answers.

Relying on the use of external devices

For example the likes of USD or a blue tooth device is easy to conceal and it makes them difficult to detect. Even the smart devices work out to be standard devices when it comes to the question of on screen cheating. Be it before or during the course of the test the students are going to plug it for their easy use.

Another possibility is to configure your computer with blue tooth before you sit for the exam. Even directly copying from them is easy for the tech centric students. A secure exam browser might be of help in such cases. This same logic holds true for blue tooth integrated devices or smart watches that rely on providing answers to the students.

Task switching

Regularly switching from one screen to another is a method of cheating that works out to be a common task. Even you are going to use keyboards or short cut controls that enables the task of cheating and makes them accessible in an easy way.

The worst part is that students continue to exploit the vulnerabilities despite the fact that there are proper control mechanisms in place so as to curb cheating. But once you adopt technology it goes a long way in making the exams safe and secure. There is no need to regularly deploy the IT staff or the browser of the student so as to adhere to the rules. There is a need to formulate a solution that integrates with the students need during the course of an examination. In fact the need of the hour is a robust and a credible platform that goes full out to prevent the possibility of mishaps during the exams. Not only it means deployment of technology but it is going to prevent any form of violation during the exam. There are a series of software that restricts the possibility of cheating to a major
extent.

Exemption Of ASUU From IPPIS Temporary — Ngige

Exemption Of ASUU From IPPIS Temporary —Ngige

Chris Ngige

Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, has said that the Federal Government’s proposal to exempt members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) from the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) is a temporary measure.

He explained on Saturday that this measure was pending the conclusion of the integrity test on the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS).

Ngige who clarified the position of the government team during Friday’s negotiation with ASUU said that it was not true that the government had abandoned IPPIS or that ASUU should not be on IPPIS.

“I think it is better because a lot of people are quoting us out of context saying that we abandoned the IPPIS and that we said they should not be on IPPIS, it is not true.

“What we said in the meeting and what we agreed was that in the interim for the transition period that UTAS is being tested by NITDA and the Office of National Security Adviser for cybersecurity. For those transition period, ASUU members that are not yet on IPPIS will be paid through the platform with which they were paid the President’s compassionate COVID-19 payment done to them between the months of February and June.

“That platform is a hybrid platform between IPPIS and MINPSI platform for the transition period. That was what was used, it’s a hybrid.”
