WA Forum on contract cheating 2016

Where: Curtin University, Western Australia

When: October 13 2016

Website: https://registrar.curtin.edu.au/events.cfm

Contract cheating, a term coined by Clarke and Lancaster in 2006*, describes the situation where students purchase bespoke academic assessments and submit the work as if it was their own.

This issue has been rapidly gaining traction globally due to the ease of accessing contractors within the digital space. Students are able to quickly outsource their work for a relatively low price due to increasing competition within the industry. Current assessment practices and technologies are not readily able to identify the affected work.

Through presentations, panels and discussions, the WA Forum on Contract Cheating will examine this problem from a number of perspectives. The forum will include:

  • Analysis of common business models and prevalence of contract cheating
  • Research findings on new methods of detecting contract cheating
  • Student perspectives and case studies of motivators and drivers of behaviour
  • How institutions can respond: recent developments in policies and practices

The cost for the forum is $100 for the day and will include:

  • Attendance at all sessions including material made available electronically
  • Refreshments and Lunch

Registrations now open.
