The objective type questions are automatically marked by the system for example Moodle, whereas the essay type (subjective type) questions are normally preferred to be marked by faculty on the system. This is indeed a facility that all students are provided with different question papers.  The online system is more economical, time-saving and easily usable. The most serious issues have been unfair means and cheating used by students during examinations. A detailed analysis of the state-of-the-art is presented in this paper.
