The lack of anonymity when being examined is a problem for students and teachers alike. So far, student identification in examination processes consists in a physical mark that unmistakably represents the student. New technologies provide us with methods that can handle digital data in an efficient and secured way. Android Operating System for mobile devices has had a steady increase in the number of users during the last six years. On the other hand, due to its popularity the trend for Smartphone devices is to increase their functionalities by adding new technologies such as Near Field Communication (NFC). With the joint use of these technologies, personal data such as name or student identification number can be replaced by a small tag fixed on the examination papers, physically identical to those of the other students in that examination process. This paper describes a framework that allows the student to keep its anonymity throughout the entire process of the examination including correction and exam review.
