Reporting Academic Integrity Violations

Beginning in Fall 2018, course instructors will be able to submit academic integrity violation reports online via the Academic Integrity Reporting Form. This functionality represents the second phase of the implementation of the Maxient Student Conduct Manager software that will be used by OCSI to manage student conduct processes, house student conduct records, and provide enhanced reporting analytics to key partners throughout the university.

WHAT WILL NOT CHANGE WITH THE NEW INTERFACE

Instructors will still need to meet with students who are suspected of violating the University Policy on Academic Integrity to investigate whether an academic integrity violation did occur. If the student is found responsible, the course instructor should document that finding along with rationale and penalty in an email to the student. 

WHAT WILL CHANGE WITH THE NEW INTERFACE

Once the decision is finalized and communicated to the student, the course instructor should complete the Academic Integrity Reporting Form. In addition to the standard form fields, we ask that instructors upload the email that was sent to the student. Instructors are also encouraged to submit supporting documentation at this time. Once submitted, the report will be received by OCSI and forwarded by OCSI to the relevant associate deans and department heads/program directors for review and second-level action as needed.

 We hope that this new tool will streamline the reporting process when an academic integrity violation has been identified. Should you have any questions or wish to schedule a meeting with a member of the OCSI team to discuss the new reporting interface, please do not hesitate to email ocsi@andrew.cmu.edu or call 412-268-2140.
