UNIMAID e-Exams Eliminates Malpractice, Students Groan

Examination malpractice is dying a natural death at UNIMAID after the introduction of electronic examination by the institution's management

The University of Maiduguri (UNIMAID) has taken the fight against examination malpractice in the institution one step further with the introduction of e-examinations.

In this system, introduced in 2010, students write exams in e-centres, instead of the regular pen and paper written tests.

Students Pulse gathered that the strategy has proven effective, significantly lowering the rate of examination malpractices among the students.

The success of the e-exams is based on the fact that students cannot copy answers from each other because questions, mostly multiple-choice, are scrambled and randomly selected for each participant.

But it has not been all good news as some student who are not tech-savvy complain.

Since some of them are first time users, it is possible for them to fail, even when they would know the right answers.
