Assessment of student progress is an important part of education process. In on-line teaching and learning this process is remarkably demanding due to the possibility of fraud. There are many ways to implement online testing, however students verification of authenticity is difficult to put into practice, and instructors can’t be sure of students’ certification. Even in open-book exams student can get outside assistance, or even use impostors, to improve their examinations scores. Schools and instructors want to be sure that students do not abuse integrity of an exam. In the paper we discuss usefulness of verification techniques and possible improvements in authentication process by multi-level validation. In particular we will assess the use of USB devices as a tool for students’ verification, and as an added measure to deter some fraudulence from students.
