Academic Integrity

 

Academic integrity is the foundation of learning at ASD iSchool.


As the basis for learning and instruction, there are a variety of tools that we
use to ensure the integrity of student work.   Among these tools are:

Turnitin.com


This Internet tool compares student work against a variety of databases. This database compares students’ work against other students’ work, as well as work found on the Internet.

 

Zangle – ASD student Information System


ASD iSchool maintains a record of student integrity incidents or violations in Zangle and this information is used to monitor the number of student integrity issues.

 

Teacher Experience


ASD iSchool instructors have extensive classroom experience. Their expertise is often a guide in identifying the level of originality in student work.

 

Discussion-Based Assessments


In many courses, the teacher regularly conducts discussion-based assessments with his or her students. These conversations occur regularly in a course and are part of the assessments and grading for each course. This teacher/student discussion provides opportunity for students to share what they have learned, to demonstrate mastery of the content, and provide the opportunity to verify the authenticity of the student’s work.

 

Proctored Exams


Students will take unit tests and final exams, along with any other test selected by the course instructor, with an ASD iSchool proctor in a supervised environment. Proctors schedules are posted on this website, as well as at the school sites. Teachers may also conduct oral tests and curriculum check-ups with students. Proctored tests and exams are part of the ASD iSchool commitment to academic integrity and original student coursework.
