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

  • Gain actionable information straight from your faculty
  • Compare your institution with other similar schools
  • Set a baseline for evaluating future changes

The Instrument

Using McCabe’s original study as a basis, the faculty survey team is creating an instrument with twin goals: first, the measures contained there will be validated, reliable, and available to scholars for research in the field. Second, the data collected will be useful as an assessment tool for individual institutions and for policymakers at the state and national levels.

This survey is designed to assess instructors’ perspectives of academic integrity behaviors, attitudes, and beliefs. It will include: a detailed inventory regarding perceived frequency of student academic misconduct behavior; a scale assessing instructors’ perspectives of their campus’ climate of integrity including policies, pedagogical behavior, and overall atmosphere; a few open-ended questions to allow more in-depth response from instructors regarding most pressing needs related to encouraging honest work and upholding integrity in the classes they teach; and demographics.

Following a validation pilot in 2022, institutions will be invited to participate in administering the final instrument during the following year. A national survey will be conducted, creating a benchmark for national assessments; the opportunity for each institution to compare itself to the national sample, relevant groups of peer institutions, and student data (for institutions that administer both study and faculty surveys). These data will also be securely stored for future use by institutions as part of their longitudinal assessments of academic integrity.
