Measures to instill academic integrity (as submitted by school)

Proctors must be certified and instructor approved. Supervisors, human resources/educational specialists, librarians, etc. are utilized as proctors. In some cases, exams are timed and may be online visible by web video. Faculty use TurnItIn to review for plagiarism. The university has an academic honesty policy and Honor Code; these are included on course syllabi. Some faculty utilize browser lock-down. The College is currently exploring the use of virtual proctoring.
