Measures to instill academic integrity (as submitted by school)

A variety of technological measures are taken when appropriate, including the use of Safe Assignment, TurnItIn, ProctorU, ExamGuard, and LMS settings that allow instructors to randomize questions and answers and time tests. The non-technological measures taken include distribution of university academic integrity policies, college academic and professionalism policies, an online module addressing professional standards, academic writing tutorials and resources, and statements in all courses about writing standards and expectations regarding academic integrity. Our course design and curriculum evaluate student learning through a variety of assignments and assessments multiple times throughout the term.
