Measures to instill academic integrity (as submitted by school)

The primary mechanism for ensuring academic integrity is course design in which students establish a pattern of coursework through multiple submissions. This allows instructors to flag work that seems out of the ordinary. Additionally, test administration settings (using a question bank, time limit, etc.) and originality software are used to promote and protect academic integrity. Finally, a strong push to educate students via continual distribution of the University academic honesty policy ensures that students are aware of what is and is not acceptable.
