Design with Integrity in Mind
- Include academic integrity statement in course syllabus
- Alternate assessments from term to term or class to class
- Set up discussion board to prevent viewing of classmates’ posts before posting
- Write test questions and activities for unique responses
- Test settings (randomize, question pools, time limits, display questions one at a time, limit question feedback)
- Create scaffolded assignments
- Require presentations as part of an assignment
Plagiarism: Not citing sources, not using quotation marks
- Turnitin can be used
- Use is not limited to papers – Can be used for discussion boards, essay exam questions, etc.
Reusing: Submitting the same work for more than one course
- As more faculty at UIS use Turnitin, this can be more easily detected
- Turnitin identifies course and semester, access to paper can be requested by original instructor
Cheating During Remote Exams
- Respondus LockDown Browser can help, but can be easily circumvented!
- Proctoring centers can be used, but are all of your online students getting equal testing environments?
- Not all proctors treat proctoring equally!
- Examity can be used to strengthen test integrity
Authenticity: Having another student take your exam for you
- How are we ensuring that the student is the one completing the exam?
- How are we authenticating our online students?
- Examity can be used to provide two-factor authentication
- Ask students to agree to an academic integrity statement before beginning a test or submitting an assignment:
“I verify I am the only one taking the exam and that no one is helping me physically or electronically. I won’t copy the exam in whole or in part. I will refrain from discussing this exam with anyone until after the due date. I will adhere to the academic integrity policy.”
