Measures to instill academic integrity (as submitted by school)

All test proctors for online exams must be approved (identification, qualifications, and authenticity) by academic administrators at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. The on-campus testing center has secured access and 24/7 surveillance. Test takers must show identification to testing center staff/proctors. In fall 2013, the institution is piloting an online testing service (that visually monitors test takers) and plans to purchase an online testing service in December 2013. Online course materials are password-protected. Online course syllabi include an academic integrity/plagiarism statement. OBD faculty are required to put mechanisms in place to prevent and/or detect plagiarism and cheating in online courses.
