Guilty Until Proven Innocent: Academic Integrity Among College Students

From the 2021 Clinical Laboratory Educators Conference (CLEC) - Recorded February 26, 2021
Presented by Beth Warning, MS, MLS(ASCP)CM, AHI(AMT), Patricia Tille, PhD, MLS(ASCP)CM and Erin Rumpke, MS, MLS(ASCP)CM

In an ideal world, academic integrity would not be an issue, but unfortunately academic misconduct exists. This session will discuss innovative cases of students who stretched the limits, review third party proctoring services, and pose examples of disciplinary action for students suspected of violating academic integrity.

At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to

  1. Identify common (and creative) ways students violate academic integrity
  2. Compare third party services for monitoring academic integrity during testing
  3. Provide examples of action measures if academic misconduct is suspected
