ICAI member institutions are invited to participate in the largest faculty survey of academic integrity in the world.

The survey includes items designed to help faculty and administrators improve the academic integrity culture on our campuses and online.

Determine rates of academic misconduct
Assess the climate of integrity
Understand faculty perspectives

Implement the survey on your campus and

The Instrument

Using McCabe’s original study as a basis, the faculty survey team created an instrument with twin goals: first, to make validated and reliable measures available to scholars for research in the field; second, to yield data useful as an assessment tool for practitioners at individual institutions as well as for policymakers at state, national, and international levels.

This survey was designed to assess instructors’ perspectives of academic integrity behaviors, attitudes, and beliefs. It inventories perceived frequency of student academic misconduct behavior; assesses instructors’ perspectives of their campus’ climate of integrity including policies, pedagogical behavior, and overall atmosphere; raises open-ended questions to allow more in-depth response regarding the most pressing needs instructors have in encouraging honest work and upholding integrity in classes they teach; and includes items about disciplinary background, preparation for teaching, teaching experience, and other demographics.

Following a validation pilot in 2022, an international survey was conducted in 2023. Currently, our team is in the process of creating a benchmark study for national and international assessment; eventually, each participating institution will be able to compare itself to the larger sample, relevant groups of peer institutions, and to student data (for institutions that administer both student and faculty surveys). Data will be securely stored for future use by institutions as part of their longitudinal assessments of academic integrity.
