Adaptive Web-Based System for Examination with Cheating Prevention Mechanism

Ondrej Kainz, Dávid Cymbalák, and František Jakab
Abstract—In this paper, the adaptive web-based system for examination with cheating prevention mechanism is presented. The idea of system was created based on the need to provide impartial evaluation during testing of learners – statistics of cheating during exams from the last decade is rather alarming however not surprising. With the dawn of new technologies cheating is becoming much easier than it used to be, as a natural result certain anti-cheating mechanism has to be deployed. System itself is in nature web-based and thus enables easy and widespread access. Approaches that enable automatic monitoring of learner during an examination were following and enhancing those in previously created systems. As a communication technology over the internet or intranet was utilized WebRTC which enabled to incorporate together various live monitoring capabilities – video, audio, screen of computer. Another feature that is in the center of interest is adaptive selection of questions. This selection is automatically carried out by system and it is based on answers as provided by learner. Deployment in the real environment is expected to be used as a complement that is to enhance education quality and provide automatic impartial evaluation of learner.

Index Terms—Adaptive testing, anti-cheating mechanism, distance learning, examination system, cheating prevention, MOOC, traditional learning.
