Measures to instill academic integrity (as submitted by school)

Single sign-on authentication is required to the university's online portal for all exams and coursework. Online exams are typically setup with a single browser window lock, a time limit, and randomized questions from an approved question pool, which greatly reduced answer searches online and test duplication. Additionally, the SCAD student handbook policy requires academic honesty, and students are instructed on the importance of academic honesty in the Orientation. Faculty use academic integrity software for coursework, as well.
