Abstract: e-Assessment provides a wide range of opportunities to improve students’ experience and apply innovative examination methods, therefore gaining growing interest from institutes of higher education. Despite the advantages of EA, considering practical use raises concerns, one of which are security risks, even more when students’ devices should be used instead of a centrally managed hardware pool. Approaching these concerns requires to evaluate and break down potential security implications and appropriate mitigations. This paper fo- cusses in particular on relative security in comparison with paper-based examinations, presuming that EA does not have to be perfect, instead it is sufficient to be on par with traditional approaches. With that assumption in mind and based on work by Sindre and Vegendla, a threat model for electronic examinations is developed, taking own research into account. For each threat included in the threat model, a counter measure is proposed. Afterwards, the level of security for EA and the level of security for paper-based examinations are compared. The results of this comparison are quite promising regarding the level of security that EA can offer. (More)
