Measures to instill academic integrity (as submitted by school)

Our primary approach is to not create an environment in the first place that fosters academic dishonesty. Our instructors accomplish this by employing multiple low-stake assessment tools, collaboration requiring group projects that allow for peer assessments, mastery learning to ensure that students do not move onto new material before demonstrating a solid understanding of current material, open book/material assessments, written exams and other critical thinking exercises that could not be responded to by someone who has not actively participated in the course. Multiple choice and short answer exams have time limits and can collect data on the length of time a student has spent in the assessment.
