Smart Technology Detects Dishonesty

Unisa’s Directorate for Student Assessments, led by Dominic Molokoena, has been employing invigilator applications to monitor student behavior during examinations. These applications, a form of proctoring tools, require students to connect to a smartphone, laptop, or desktop with a functional camera to ensure exam integrity.

Proctoring Tools Uphold Exam Integrity

Failure to use the prescribed proctoring tools or not preparing devices through a mock examination may result in withheld results for students. The invigilator applications allow the university to record students’ activities during examinations, including identifying instances of copying, plagiarizing, or discussing exam content.

Confirming Content Related Discussions

To ensure accuracy, the university seeks confirmation from lecturers regarding the nature of student discussions. While sitting near other students is permissible, discussing answers during exams is strictly prohibited.

Contextualizing Investigation Figures

Professor Solomon Magano clarifies that while the number of students under investigation may seem high, it is proportionate to Unisa’s enrollment size. The university’s enrollment figures contribute to the perception of widespread cheating, but the actual incidence is relatively low when considered in context.

However, legal challenges from the university led to the withdrawal of the minister’s decision. Unisa’s legal department head, Vuyo Peach, indicates that if the courts reject the university’s review application, an administrator may be appointed to oversee its affairs.


Unisa proactive use of technology to maintain exam integrity reflects its commitment to upholding academic standards. The investigation into alleged cheating underscores the university’s dedication to fair and honest assessment practices.
