Event description

Description

Contract cheating website services are a serious threat to academic integrity in universities because they challenge the authenticity of student authorship in assessment. Current plagiarism detection strategies do not catch contract cheating students because their purchased assessment responses are individualised and users’ details are hidden behind sophisticated fire walls. In response we need to ensure that students genuinely complete work for which they get university credit.

In these workshops we aim to bring together the creative minds of academics, learning designers and others’ experienced in assessment design across the university sector to develop a collection of high stakes assessment case studies that demonstrate ways to strengthen the verification of student identity in undertaking these tasks. The workshops are funded by the Asia Pacific Forum on Educational Integrity (APFEI) and a revised collection of assessment case studies will be placed on the APFEI’s website. Registered participants will be contacted by the facilitators about possible involvement in an accompanying research project.

Places are limited.
