"1. Make Expectations Clear
- Reference school honor code
- Define academic dishonesty
- Articulate consequences
- Provide a clear policy on syllabus and in other locations in the course
- Require tutorial or pre-assessment" (Penn State and UT Austin)
"2. Construct Valid Assessments & Delivery with Foresight
- Make sure assessment strategy matches what is being assessed
- Align activities, assignments, assessments for validity
- Focus on higher level of thinking rather than 'one right answer' assessments
- Administer random quizzes or tests using social media tools
- Design test items that allow the student to use their textbook
- Allow multiple attempts, perhaps with highest score recorded (practice challenge)
- Use Online Classroom Assessment Techinques"
"3. Make the most of the Technology
- Consider computer-adaptive testing and randomized testing from vendors
- Use browser lock-down software
- Integrate identity authentication (webcam, fingerprint scans, optic retinal, palm vein scanning, face recognition or keystroke pattern analysis)
- Use plagiarism detection tools (students too)"
