Maintain academic integrity
How can institutions maintain academic integrity when students are so willing to cheat?
Many students can lack the confidence and skills they need to produce academic assignments to a high enough standard and despite universities offering academic support, they outsource their work to contract cheating services.
New legislation announced in October 2021 will effectively outlaw essay mills and other cheating services – but although the move looks certain to remove some of the opportunity for students to cheat, it won’t tackle the underlying reasons behind it.
In this report we take an in-depth look at the issue of academic writing; get to grips with the root causes of cheating and discuss how educators and skills support staff can take action.
