New regulation puts pressure on proctors

VietNamNet Bridge – Proctors seem to feel more worried than the examinees who attend the high school final exams, because they fear they may violate the exam regulations accidentally.

VietNamNet Bridge – Proctors seem to feel more worried than the examinees who attend the high school final exams, because they fear they may violate the exam regulations accidentally.



More than one million students would attend the finals in 10 days. Meanwhile, schools still feel puzzled when implementing the new regulations which allow examinees to bring recorders into exam rooms.

Do Viet Khoa, a teacher well known for his efforts to fight against the exam cheating, applauded the new regulation, saying that the proctors would have to do their works more seriously, because they know their works would be supervised.

Tran Van Thi, Headmaster of the Luc Ngan 3 High School, said he has disseminated the exam regulations to all the teachers and students of the school.

The new regulations would allow strengthening the supervision of examinees over the proctors’ works and forcing them to heighten their responsibility. With the cameras in the exam rooms, examinees can show the proofs of the wrongdoings conducted by proctors, if these occur.

However, Thi said, the teachers have complained the new regulation has put them under a hard pressure.

“They don’t have deep knowledge enough to tell the differences of the recorders and cameras and they don’t know what devices can be brought into exam rooms,” Thi said, adding that it’s very difficult to discover the tiny devices which look like buttons.

The headmaster of the Luc Ngan 3 High School said he has asked informatics teachers of the schools who have deep knowledge about technologies, to share their knowledge with other teachers.

Nghiem Quy Binh, Headmaster of the Dong Anh High School in Hanoi, also thinks that proctors would meet difficulties when differentiating transceiver devices.

Nguyen Thi Thanh Huyen, Headmaster of the Tay Ho High School in Hanoi, said the school plans a training course next week to train the teachers how to recognize transceiver devices.

It seems that the teachers in remote areas feel less pressure than their colleagues in the lowland, because the students there are believed to be more obedient.

Nguyen Thi Minh Thuy, Headmaster of the To Hieu High School in Son La province, said 465 students of the school would attend the finals in early June.

“We have trained the teachers about the new exam regulations. The students have been asked not to bring prohibited transceiver devices to exam rooms. No student has had inquiry about the new regulation so far,” she said.

Hoang Tien Duc, Director of the Son La provincial Education and Training Department, said the province would have 9,900 students to attend the high school finals. However, the education department tries not to “overplay,” so that the teachers and students are not excessively worried.

Meanwhile, a lot of teachers don’t highly appreciate the solutions. Dao Ngoc Dinh, a teacher of the Hung Yen High School for the Gifted, frankly said the new regulation would not only help stop exam cheating, but may make the situation worse.

If an examinee does not focus on his exam paper, but on filming, he must not be an examinee at all. Especially, the action of filming would badly affect the other students in the same room. Therefore, the solution offered by the education department may do more harm than good.
