Cheating and Plagiarism Enid Brown & David Telles-Langdon Kinesiology and Applied Health
Cheating Honest students rely on us to attempt to level the playing field What can we do to reduce cheating and plagiarism?
Test and Exams Different test/exam for different sections Different test/exam for students writing early/late Students should bring photo ID and sign in Students may not bring electronic devices
Test/Exam Setup Book a second/larger room Use dividers and/or assigned seating Mix up order of questions (A and B tests) Use long answer questions
Test/Exam Admin Encourage washroom visits BEFORE test starts, discourage drinking DT-L checks bathroom before exam for cheat notes (has found material) No hats, or hats on backward
DRC Cautions Tests in DRC should be written at SAME time as yours Confirm student has no access to internet if using a computer Fill out the form DRC sends regarding what student is allowed to use
Papers/Reports Original research (video, interview, survey) Choose article to be reviewed or ensure it is from the last 3 months (for example) Watch for papers appearing in more than one course or for different instructor
