Do students understand academic integrity? - Gina Londino-Smolar, Smart Brief

Since November 2017, 3,000 first-year seminar students in University College at Indiana University - Purdue University Indianapolis have taken a voluntary online course on academic integrity. The average pretest scores were 49%, but when these students finished the course, the post-test score averaged 93%. Our team, which developed the course, wasn't surprised to find that the course was effective. What was surprising, though, was to discover, through the pre-test, that many students do not have foundational skills of proper citation, setting them up for trouble in their academic and professional careers.
