Measures to instill academic integrity (as submitted by school)

Many of the courses do not use examinations for the assessment of students. Assessment is often done via assignments and projects. For examination based assessment the most common method is the use of large randomized test banks that give different questions in different sequences to each student. Most exams are available for a limited time period. Capstone project in both engineering and business are used - and these students collaborate as groups (business and engineering together) for the capstone project. Faculty will also do oral examinations via skype or other communication media (or to verify student work).
