Building Academic Integrity into the design of the course and the assessments.
Set time limits on quizzes and exams.
- Use and leverage test banks or groups in Canvas.
- Create several questions that cover the same objective at the same level.
- Add new questions each time the course is taught to have more versions. Consider starting with 3 versions of each questions and an 1-2 more versions each time you teach. Eventually, you will have a large bank to draw from without having to write a new quiz or exam each semester.
- Change essay questions regularly or at least cycle through a few different ones from year to year.
- Use the same problems, but give students different data to use from semester to semester.
- Use video to have student record themselves answering questions as a backup if you suspect an issue might arise.
- Use proctoring if it is available.
