RFID being tapped to stifle exam cheaters

Not convinced about the usefulness of this RFID application, reported on Ars Technica: RFID being tapped to stifle exam cheaters

Given that this only seems to be used to check if all the exam papers are still in the package. Surely, someone could count them? Also, it doesn’t seem to account for the fact that whoever might steal the papers, may now just photograph/photocopy them instead.

On the other hand using statistical analysis to flag particular answer papers for further investigation seems reasonable but it doesn’t prove that someone has cheated.
