Examination Cheat Risk Reduction through FIPEs

Josef Spillner

Abstract

Fully Individualised Programmable Exams (FIPEs) are physically or digitally written examinations in which the task descriptions are different for all students according to programmatically controlled variability. FIPEs reduce the risk of collaborative cheating while adhering to institutional equality policies by controlling how many differences are introduced. The individualisations are based on permutations, deviations, randomisations and sampling. They allow for meeting legal constraints and yet gaining the desired ability to further automate solutions checking. This paper contributes a software solution to address the need from exam specification to distribution. It introduces a categorisation for FIPEs, presents a working implementation to generate and disseminate exam documents and delivers an experience report in two curriculums, computer science and engineering sciences.
