Abstract [en]

Preventing cheating in online as well as more traditional examination is important, but achieving zero cheating is hard or impossible without repelling not only cheaters but also those who would not cheat. A zero-tolerance emphasis on cheating shifts the focus from what is being learned to test scores, destroying the intrinsic motivation of learning. Test scores are only meaningful within the education, while the actual learning is what creates meaning outside of the education. What forms of cheat prevention in online examinations are reasonable in relation to traditional examination, without ruining the students' intrinsic motivation? A literature study was conducted. From the discussion of previous research it can be concluded that zero tolerance of cheating in online examination is unrealistic, unnecessary and not required compared to traditional examination. Further, zero tolerance could also ruin the intrinsic motivation of learning. This enables forms of examination such as web camera observation but also dialogue based interaction for examination.
