Lecturers contain the knowledge on how students cheat during exams. They are the main actors of centrality towards mitigating the criminal activity among students. Their operations within the network depict a particular relationship; students come to university to study while lecturers take them through the curriculum within the stipulated timeframe.
A higher degree of centrality means that an actor can segregate himself from a particular group in terms of authority. For example, in the university structure, lecturers have a high degree of centrality than the students. The lecturers can exercise their authority on how the students interact to ensure that criminal activities are avoided.
Some actors appear to be in suitable positions for spreading information faster than others. Analysts argue that authority is matched by the ability to spread information faster and more efficiently. Actors who exercise a high degree of centrality have the authority to disseminate information at a higher rate as opposed to those with a low degree of centrality (Moreno, 2014). Centrality aims at establishing the influential spreaders of information within structures (Boba, 2013). When such information is established, analysts can identify the level of fairness of power within the structure. Analysts may also be able to establish the degree of equivalence within a structure whose centrality has been established (Clark,
