Turnitin are sponsoring a competition in a bid to raise student awareness of contract cheating. Please tell your students that they have until Friday 2nd November for the chance to win £1,000. To receive the money they need to submit the most creative way of making students aware of the risks / inacceptable nature of contract cheating.
Contract cheating occurs when one person completes academic work (e.g. assignment, exam, test, quiz, exam) on behalf of another person who then submits it for academic credit. This behaviour undermines the quality and integrity of the degree, and it undermines the entire education system.
The competition is Turnitin’s support for the International Day of Action Against Contract Cheating that takes place on Wednesday 17th October. You can take part in the day of action by
- promoting the poster,
- posting whiteboard declarations
- downloading and sharing the Institutional Toolkit To Combat Contract Cheating
