Transcript of Promoting Academic Integrity in the Classroom

Promoting Academic Integrity in the Classroom
What is academic dishonesty?
“Academic dishonesty includes, but is not limited to, intentional or unintentional dishonesty in academic assignments or in dealing with University officials, including faculty and staff members.”
2012-2013 SEAS Bulletin

Faculty & TA Responsibility
Members of the course staff are required to report all suspected incidents of academic dishonesty.
While ultimately it is the student's responsibility to maintain his/her academic integrity, there are methods that can be employed to help prevent intentional and unintentional cases of academic dishonesty.
Office of Judicial Affairs (OJA)
Dean’s Discipline Process
Ensures consistency in findings and sanctioning
Outcomes and Sanctions
What are the possible outcomes?

Not responsible


Grading Policies
The Dean’s Discipline process is separate from the grading of the assignment or course.

Allows monitoring of repeated offenses
The student attends the hearing conducted by members of the judicial office.
The student and instructor are notified of the outcome of the hearing. The student, but not the instructor, is notified of the sanction(s), if any.
The incident is forwarded to the appropriate judicial office by the instructor or department.
What are the possible sanctions?
No sanction

The instructor determines all grades for the course regardless of the outcome of the hearing.
Communicate Expectations
Clearly define the level and type of collaboration, if any, that is appropriate.
Is group work allowed? What type?
Can students use the internet?
What types and styles of citations are required?
What other resources can be consulted?
Inform your students that all instances of suspected academic dishonesty will be reported to the Dean's Office.
Undergraduates (CC, SEAS, GS) and SEAS graduate students:
Exams - Before
Create different versions
alter the order of the questions
alter the order of the answers if using multiple choice
vary the questions slightly (but maintain same level of difficulty)
Number each exam and include the number on every page of the exam
Avoid using old versions of exams or exam questions if possible
Exams - During
Backpacks, cell phones, books, notes - everything - at front of room
At least one seat between each pair of students if possible
Have multiple proctors walk around the room during the entire exam
Students often collaborate when the proctor's attention is diverted - be aware of this
Calculators can talk to each other
"Cheat sheets" can be written on baseball caps, the inside of water bottles, and arms/legs
they can also be stored in the restroom
Exams - After
Make photocopies of completed exams
students can change responses on graded exams in an attempt to earn more points
helpful if multiple graders are used
it's always nice to have a backup copy
Grade the exams in order of exam number
students who sit near each other will have exam numbers near each other as well
