Contract cheating has been defined as instances of a student submitting work for academic credit that has been completed in part, or in entirety, by a paid contractor, but the understanding and scope of this behaviour has evolved. This resource will help put that in perspective.
The Griffith University Assessment Committee has released a new information resource to assist educators to identify and deal with contract cheating.
The Information Sheet provides information around the following:
- What is Contract cheating?
- How prevalent is contract cheating and what causes it?
- Is ‘Authentic Assessment’ the answer to the problem?
- How to identify contract cheating
- How to minimise contract cheating
- Supporting LOTE students specifically
- What policies and information do I need to be aware of that relate to contract cheating.
