Cheating and plagiarism can be considered to be a major concern in e-assessment in higher education. To solve this problem, student authentication and authorship systems have been developed in recent years. TeSLA is one of the authentication and authorship systems and constitutes the rationale of this paper. The aim of this study is to determine higher education students' views on how to prevent cheating and plagiarism in e-assessment. The study was designed as a cross sectional survey. Participants were 952 students from two public universities in Turkey and Bulgaria. The data was collected via a questionnaire and it was found that mainly students do not trust non-proctored e-assessment as they faced some cheating and plagiarism. This finding can be considered as an evidence that the new technologies could be used to achieve more reliable results.
