New resource to help combat contract cheating
To mark today’s International Day of Action Against Contract Cheating, TEQSA has published a new resource to help academics identify and respond to cases of contract cheating in symbol dense assessments.
The new Substantiating contract cheating for symbol-dense, logical responses in any discipline, particularly mathematics: a guide for investigators contains advice to complement existing TEQSA resources.
Developed for TEQSA by La Trobe University’s Dr Katherine Seaton, the new resource outlines how academics can identify contract cheating in symbol dense fields, and includes an investigations checklist and questions for investigators.
International Day of Action Against Contract Cheating is a global event organised by the International Center for Academic Integrity (ICAI) to promote the importance of academic integrity and the risks posed by contract cheating.
