This Country Shut Down Internet To Prevent Pupils Cheating In Exams
What extent can you go to stop pupils from cheating in an exam?
For Algeria, it involved going to the extent of shutting down internet across the country during exam time.
Mobile and web connections were stopped for two hours on Wednesday to coincide with the start of two high school diploma tests.
The blackouts are expected to continue for the duration of the exam period, which runs until Monday next week, following a crackdown by officials.
This became compulsory after the 2016 exam season got marred by widespread cheating, with questions published on social media before or at the start of tests.
This then prompted exams authorities to ask operators to shut down access to social media.
Mobile phones and tablets with internet access have now been banned at more than 2,000 exam centres to stop cheating among more than 700,000 students.
Metal detectors have even been placed at the entrances, while phone jamming technology and CCTV have been installed at sites where exam papers are printed.
Internet provider Algerie Telecom said web services were cut "in compliance with instructions from the government, aimed at ensuring the high school diploma tests run smoothly".
