Measures to instill academic integrity (as submitted by school)

Most faculty give projects and assignments that develop over the term. Projects are discussed and assessed at multiple points across the term wherein students demonstrate knowledge of their own work. Exams are rarely the same from term to term. Class sizes are small which means faculty know their students and the work they are doing. Some tools, such as "Turn It In" are used to evaluate plagiarism in written work.
