Abstract

The rapid growth of online examinations using Internet-based assessment tools has continued. The inability to control a student’s environment while taking exams has been a major challenge for higher education. A clear correlation exists between an increase in the number of acts of dishonesty and the failure of institutions offering courses to monitor and enforce policies on cheating. The recent article of academic dishonesty and proctor at home published by Chronicle Higher Education, the U.S. Congress is concerned about quality and integrity of distance learning and had added language into a part of legislation renewing the Higher Education Act that encourages schools to fight cheating more effectively.
