Tracing technology to help catch cheaters

Cheating at universities in Sweden is on the rise, reports TT news agency. Last year 750 students were warned or expelled for cheating, 48 percent more than compared to the year before. To combat the problem, Uppsala University is trying a new method of catching cheaters: Mobile tracing, writes TT, citing a story in Upsala Nya Tidning newspaper.

It’s forbidden to bring mobile phones into classrooms during examinations but because body searches are not allowed it has been difficult to enforce the rule. The aim of tracing is to uncover hidden mobile phones, writes TT.
