Talking about Contract Cheating: Facilitating a Forum for Collaborative Development of Assessment Practices to Combat Student Dishonesty
Slade, Christine; Rowland, Susan; McGrath, Dominic
International Journal for Academic Development, v24 n1 p21-34 2019
Contract cheating presents an existential threat to university assessment integrity and, therefore, to the reputations of universities and their graduates. We report on two workshops, with academic development participants who collaboratively addressed assessment identity verification through problem identification and solution creation. As facilitators, we iteratively reflected on the workshop processes to design and refine subsequent offerings. The corresponding research sought to increase sectoral collaboration and evidence student authorship in assessment. This work provides one approach to developing practice-driven resources and insights for academic developers to encourage others to collaboratively address complex problems that are difficult to resolve, like contract cheating.
