Abstract—The article deals with the issues of observing the
culture of academic integrity in examinations in a distance
learning environment. The purpose of this study is to provide an
overview of the solutions that are currently used in our
organization to monitor educational achievement, while
maintaining an appropriate level of culture of academic
integrity by technologization of the assessment process as one of
the necessary ways. The authors, based on their research, which
was carried out for two years, give recommendations on the
organization of online exams, consider various types of control
and the corresponding digital technologies that allow
maintaining academic integrity. Identified possible violations
during the online exam, analyzed the causes and proposed
solutions. Types of exam that develop critical thinking and have
zero tolerance for any violation of the code of academic
integrity are the open book written exam, project and practical
exams, as well as testing and closed book written exam using a
proctoring system. Identified principles that should become the
norm to strengthen the culture of academic integrity.
