For some time, universities have been concerned about digital academic dishonesty, particularly with respect to plagiarized term papers and reports. Recently, many universities have adopted classroom management software, such as Blackboard ™or WebCT™. These classroom management applications afford faculty and students many additional electronic capabilities, including easy posting of class notes or presentation files for downloading, collection of student assignments in digital drop boxes, online testing, chat rooms, and so forth. The inventive student intent on earning an acceptable course grade may use classroom management software, email, and the Web in ways that violate academic integrity standards. Now, in addition to the problem of electronically plagiarized term papers and reports, students are discovering ways to cheat in online and computer-based testing.
