EXAMINATION ETHICS IN OPEN AND DISTANCE LEARNING INSTITUTIONS
Students at every level of education, including the ODL system, tend to study to pass examinations. They tend to look for the easiest way out of challenges. As result, they tend to make use of the ‘short- cuts’, which can lead them to do things which are not permitted in the school system. These include examination malpractices and cheating. In this paper examination in ODL, issues in the administration of examinations in ODL, ensuring high quality examination system, characteristics of a good examination system, and examination ethics in ODL system and stages of examination ethics are discussed.
