Academic Integrity – ‘Dishonesty in Assessment’ Issues Paper
Dr Christine Slade, Lecturer in Higher Education, Institute of Teaching and Learning Innovation (ITaLI), UQ
Academic integrity is a consistent matter of importance in tertiary education. Recent media reports of student assignment purchasing uncovered at several Australian Universities (and overseas) increases the urgency for universities to provide considered responses to all parties. This paper frames the problems faced by universities around student dishonesty in assessment, the risks UQ face from poor assessment integrity, the individual and contextual factors that influence student misconduct, and potential strategies to engender a culture of excellence in academic honesty across the campuses at UQ.
