Conference Session Preview–Just Say No…to Cheating

Curious about which session to attend this fall…here’s a teaser…

Heather Roberts and Stephanie Alexander, Indiana State University

“Structurally Sound: Building Academic Integrity into Assignments”

Sixty-eight percent of undergraduate students have admitted to cheating, according to an ICAI survey conducted in 2015. That number is staggering, confirming fears that every college educator has: students do not always submit original work. To combat academic dishonesty, faculty often rely on software, such as Turnitin, to find plagiarism; however, we know that this technology cannot always identify plagiarism. In this workshop, Heather Roberts and Stephanie Alexander will discuss strategies for building academic integrity into assignments for both face-to-face and distance education courses, focusing on scaffolding, evaluating smaller assignments, and employing deeper analytical assessments.
