We all believe in maintaining academic integrity so as to preserve the spirit of higher education and to also ensure all students are working fairly. However, research shows that imbuing students with sense of academic integrity can lead to improved workplace behavior in the future (https://www.turnitin.com/blog/why-academic-integrity-is-important-to-teaching-and-learning).
While there are several practices that can help students learn the importance of academic integrity, TILT has several tools to help improve academic integrity and help guide your students toward more ethical decisions.
TILT offers two types of proctoring software. These tools can be used both online and on campus to ensure students are not accessing assistive materials during an exam.
Honorlock is proctoring software that runs on Google’s Chrome Extension. Honorlock allows for manual proctoring, in which an Honorlock representative oversees the students’ exam.

SafeAssign is a tool in Blackboard that compares your students’ submissions with others from around the world. SafeAssign can be added to any assignment with the click of a button.
