Measures to instill academic integrity (as submitted by school)

Stevens utilizes the TurnItIn software for plagiarism detection. Instructors also vary the assignments and assessment methods to a great degree, which makes it harder for cheating to have as big an effect as it might otherwise have in courses with fewer assessment points.
