    Opponents    of    the    idea    point    out    that    it    is    very    difficult    to    ensure    that    all    the    computers    are    working    at    the    same    speed    –    or    even    working    at    all,    which    can    only    add    to    the    stress    for    exam    students.    Then    there    are    security    concerns,    with    some    people    suggesting    that    using    computers    like    this    in    exams    opens    the    door    to    cheating.    They    say    it    is    impossible    to    monitor    the    sites    the    students    visit    or    any    contact    they    may    make    with    friends    outside    the    exam    room    or    even    other    students    in    the    same    exam.    ………………………    They    point    out    that    exams    these    days    are    no    longer    about    remembering    facts    and    figures.    They    are    about    analysing    things.    Examination    questions    these    days    do    not    usually    ask    about    when,    who    or    what.    They    ask    why    and    how.    It’s    hard    to    cheat    using    the    Internet    on    questions    like    this.

    Surely,    computers    are    such    an    important    part    of    the    learning    process    today    that    it    is    a    natural    step    to    use    them    in    exams?    Many    people    believe    that    it    is    only    right    that    students    should    be    tested    with    the    same    tools    that    they    use    to    learn.    For    those    worried    about    cheating,    it’s    important    to    remember    that    in    exams    the    students    are    under    a    lot    of    pressure    and    have    to    do    a    lot    of    things    in    a    very    short    time.    ………………………    Perhaps    computer    use    in    exams    will    become    standard    procedure    in    a    few    years’    time.    What    do    you    think?    We’d    love    to    hear    your    views.    Post    a    comment    on    our    website.
