Research shows that all forms of assessment are susceptible to academic misconduct behaviours; however, some assessments are more susceptible (e.g., assignments with a short turn-around, or heavily weighted assessments), than others (e.g., oral examinations, reflective tasks, tasks completed in class) (Australian Government Department of Education and Training, 2018). Instructors can take steps to design assessments that are less prone to misconduct by aligning assessments with learning outcomes and focusing on assessments that evaluate process in addition to product. The following sections describe the main types of assessments, as well as strategies to produce robust assessments that support learning and student engagement.
