Measures to instill academic integrity (as submitted by school)

Students must review and acknowledge the Academic Integrity Module and "Student Code of Ethical Behavior and Academic Honesty for Online Courses" in their online Orientation that describes the University’s procedures. As required by the reauthorization of the HEA, each student is assigned a unique identification number, and the course website as well as the email client and University service portal (USFConnect) are all password protected. Faculty use Turnitin.com as a plagiarism detecting service for every major written assignment in every course. Faculty monitor submissions, provide detailed feedback, and engage students via discussion forums or directly to monitor and verify curricular integrity.
