Measures to instill academic integrity (as submitted by school)

The university sends a clear message to all students about the Honor Code here, and it is required that the Honor Code is written in every course syllabus. There is a clear university policy for reporting and investigating academic dishonesty. We use Turnitin for plagiarism. Graduate assignments are usually papers, projects and discussions that cannot be easily completed by others or copied from another student. We can use a browser lockdown for online exams. We use Blackboard settings for random question and answer order and random question selection from test banks. Some exams are proctored.
