Upholding Academic Integrity Tips
By: Lucy Kluckhohn-Jones, Professor of Microbiology & College Ombudsperson
- Make it easy for your students to be scholars.
- Make it clear what is to be done individually and what is group work.
- Learn the names of your students, and something about each one.
- Provide more than one version of an exam or quiz.
- Vary the type of questions; consider placement on the page.
- Number each and every copy of the test (including extras if any).
- Hand out each exam to each student in person.
- Have students put books and notes out of sight, out of reach.
- Allow a page of notes (with instructed limitations).
- Provide a calculator for student use (no cell phones or fancy calculators).
- Remind students to keep silence in the exam room before and during the exam.
- Remind students to use the rest room before the exam; leave the room and the exam must be turned in.
- Remind students before the exam that they are expected to keep their eyes on their own papers.
- For electronically submitted papers, run them through EVE software before grading. Show students the results.
- If academic dishonesty is detected, file an academic dishonesty report form within 10 days of the discovery.
