Assessing the strength of your institution’s academic integrity program in a remote learning environment

Baker Tilly recently co-hosted a webinar with the Association of College & University Auditors (ACUA) for higher education audit, internal audit and risk professionals on assessing the strength of your institution’s academic integrity program in a remote learning environment.

As remote and distance learning persists for many higher education institutions around the country, so too do issues around academic integrity. Faculty and administrators have struggled to address an increase in academic dishonesty (cheating), along with numerous other challenges that have arisen from operating in an almost entirely virtual environment. Internal audit can be a key ally in developing and executing frameworks to assess your institution’s internal controls and enhance academic integrity.

Key takeaways:
  • Describe evolving academic integrity risks that have presented themselves in a remote educational environment
  • Identify controls that can be used to prevent or detect academic integrity issues in a remote environment
  • Determine possible audit approaches to assess the effectiveness of the institution’s control environment
