Academic integrity

Faculty members teaching online courses can assist in online identity verification.

 Encouraging Academic Integrity

Keep these best practices in mind as you develop your online course:

  • Watch for changes in your students' academic performance or writing style
  • Include a variety of formative and summative assessment instruments
  • Create unique assignments for online courses
  • Require that written assignments be submitted in steps
  • Use time limits for online quizzes
  • Use plagiarism detection software, such as TurnItIn (available through D2L, our learning management system)

For questions and concerns about encouraging academic integrity or help using TurnItIn, please email DistanceEd@cheyney.edu.
