A 70-year-old widow, Mrs. Maria Okoh, caught having sex with a 30-year-old man in Amauzu Nkpoghoro village in Afikpo North Local Government Area of Ebonyi State, was fined three goats after being paraded round the village to appease the land.

It was gathered that the septuagenarian was caught in the act by one of her grandchildren, who had gone to give her food in her late husband’s house. The granddaughter reportedly went straight to her grandmother’s room with the food items only to meet her on the bed stack naked making love with a young man in his early 30’s.

According to Vanguard, the grand-daughter reportedly raised the alarm seeing what is described as an abominable act in the community; a source added that she immediately reported the matter to the elders, who in turn alerted youths of the village.

The source said the villagers immediately dragged the widow and her lover out of the house, where they were hiding, and paraded round the community, chanting disgraceful songs behind them as punishment for their atrocious act.

The source, who pleaded anonymity, added that the punishment meted out to the two lovers was the worst punishment anyone could go through in Afikpo land.

He said the woman would have faced a greater punishment if her husband was still alive. The source, however, revealed that the act has brought shame to the widow’s family, adding that she was among the most respected women in the community before the incident.

It was gathered that according to the community’s custom, the woman will give three goats as fine after being paraded round the village to appease the land.

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.
