Ensuring academic integrity requires just a little bit of preparation. Read more to learn about the tools that can help.
Now that it is the end of the summer term and your learners are hard at work on preparing final projects or essays and studying for final exams, we want to remind you of two tools and some strategies for using them that you can deploy in your course to discourage cheating. Faith in academic integrity processes is essential for learners to know that their work is being evaluated in a fair manner. A lack of confidence in academic integrity can lead to a lack of engagement in learning activities. Read on to learn how you can add a layer of confidence by using academic integrity tools effectively.
Turnitin is one of the easiest tools for checking plagiarism. You and your learners can both see the report generated for the submission and the associated score indicator. The originality report tells you what portions of the submission are being flagged for plagiarism and where that content was found. Click the logo on the left for more detailed instructions about adding Turnitin as a submission option for your Canvas assignments.
LockDown Browser is one of two products from Respondus that Clemson Online supports. LockDown browser has a variety of settings and is easy to incorporate into your online tests. The Canvas exam launches in a secure browser which prevents learners from clicking away from the test or opening any new windows or tabs. Click the logo on the left for more detailed instructions about how to use LockDown Browser.
When constructing any Canvas quiz, or editing one already made, be sure to enable the following options:
These settings further reduce the possibility of cheating or of learners making copies of your quiz questions to share with others.
Consider making the long-form answers on an exam their own separate uploadable assignment and use Turnitin to check for any plagiarism. Use LockDown Browser for the exam itself and the remaining questions that can be auto-graded. Then, require your learners to submit their long-form answer assignment by the end of the testing period. While this will require a couple more steps on your part and explaining it to your learners, you will be adding another layer of protection.
