Universities commission to crack down on cheating

The Tanzania Commission for Universities intends to start screening all undergraduate research work in various institutions in a bid to curb cheating and duplication, reports The Guardian.

The programme, effective from next academic year, will, among other things, require all research works to be submitted to the commission for approval before students graduate. It will also use online software to check research forgeries and repetitions.

Once in place, the system would symbolise a milestone in the commitment to tackle cheating and forgery, the scale of which has become alarming in recent years.
