Abstract 

The paper describes a detailed procedure used to increase the reliability of online exams at a university. Background: The COVID-19 pandemic forced most universities to teach online. The most challenging part of online teaching is conducting online exams. Cheating in online exams is much easier, and many students may opt to cheat. Consequently, a fair assessment of the student performance becomes very challenging. Even though online teaching reduces teaching effectiveness, in many universities, the average GPA of students was observed to increase significantly. Intended outcomes: Since correlated, reducing cheating in online exams is vital. Application Design: In close collaboration with the computer center, the university administration designed a procedure containing some technological and innovative steps to be applied in online exams throughout the university. Findings: After applying the exam procedure in all courses, the reliability of online exams is greatly improved. The average GPA of students in the university returned to the pre-pandemic level.
