In response to concerns about the integrity of students’ grades, some universities have taken steps to end the problem of missing marks.
Mt Kenya University has invested in a students management information system that it says is foolproof and has put an end to the phenomenon.
Deputy Vice-Chancellor Academics and Research Bibianne Aidi told the Nation that once the marks are keyed in and published, the students can access the results through the portal wherever they are.
“Teaching and examination registers are biometric. The signing is made twice; at the start and end of the examination when students submit the booklets to ensure none sneaks them out,” she said.
Dr Aidi added that previously, the university used examination booklets that did not have security features, a situation that created room for cheating and marks missing.
