Designing assessment for academic integrity

Minocha, Shailey (2021). Designing assessment for academic integrity. In: Assessment Programme/Scholarship Steering Group Event, 10 Nov 2021, Assessment Hub: Supporting assessment practices around the OU, The Open University, UK (online).


In this presentation, I outlined the definitions of academic integrity and the values of honesty, trust, fairness, respect, responsibility, and courage encapsulated in these definitions. I discussed about why educators care about academic integrity and how it is the aim of an educational institution to reduce academic misconduct and to foster academic integrity. I proposed several strategies to foster academic integrity in our students and discussed two in detail: 'integrating academic integrity within the ethical integrity of the discipline' and 'professional development, and sharing of good practice and experiences of dealing with academic misconduct'. Finally, I discussed two strategies for designing assessment for academic integrity: 'process-oriented assessment alongside the product; with feedback that feeds forward into the next task' and 'design of authentic assessment to link theory to practice'.
