IT in Educational Management: Can it Support Solution of e-Cheating Problem?

Abstract : The paper tries to answer the question – can IT tools help to solve e-cheating problem during the course of information technologies and computer sciences. The scale of e-cheating leads to the situation that dishonest students have better grades than honest ones. None of the simple solutions known from the literature helped to solve that problem, so IT tools were used. The first part of the paper gives a critical review of the literature of the subject. In the second one comparative analysis of results of the two surveys is performed. The first one was based on a survey conducted in United States, the second in Australia. This analysis shows that there are very big cultural differences in students’ attitude to cheating in different countries. The third part presents two software solutions of e-cheating problem investigated during research – monitoring software and safe exam browser. Final remarks are accompanied by raising an open question – will these IT solutions be valuable in the coming decade?
