Measures to instill academic integrity (as submitted by school)

Secure login to Blackboard. Multiple assessment methods - including tests, papers, case studies, lesson plans, applied problems, etc. Performance-based assessments are used most often. Exams are rarely used. When exams are used, they are times, and are designed to be open book. Open Book Design assumes the student has access to the book, so questions focus on higher level thinking skills such as application & creation rather than on information recall. Weekly writing-based interactions with students ensures that the instructor learns the writing style of individuals and can check for inconsistencies between writing assignments. SafeAssign plagiarism software is employed. Practicum courses require periodic live audio or video connections.
