Measures to instill academic integrity (as submitted by school)

Blackboard has a feature called Respondus, which locks down the browser (e.g., disables right mouse button, disables print, etc.). Instructors can set a time that allows for completion, but not for sifting through materials for answers. Exam question and response order can be randomized so no exams are identical. A variety of assessment tools are encouraged, as well as exam questions that require the application of knowledge, not simply fact. Completion of the exam can be forced without ability to backtrack. Submissions are time/date-stamped.
