Faculty and Administrator Perceptions of Academic Integrity: A Survey
for Intellectual Property at the University of Maryland University
College is embarking on a study of perceptions
of administrators and faculty concerning academic dishonesty among
students. The CIP is studying
the use of honor codes/pledges and academic integrity policies at select
Asynchronous Learning Network (ALN) institutions.
As you may be aware, institutions across the country
are grappling with academic dishonesty on their respective campuses. Institutions need information about the strategies being used to
prevent academic dishonesty, the perceived prevalence of academic
dishonesty at colleges and universities, the types of student behavior
cited most frequently as being problematic, and identification of
the tools and resources most frequently used to detect and prevent
practices that undermine student learning and quality scholarship.
The results of this study will be disseminated in the
form of a print publication. In addition, as a service to the
higher education community, the results will be available in digital
format from the Center’s Web page. The need for this data is critical
and the survey is designed to assist the Center meet the expressed need
for more information on this issue within the higher education community.
The survey is now closed. You can view the results of this study in the article, Digital text, distance education and academic dishonesty: faculty and administrators perceptions and responses.
