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

The surveys 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 student and faculty perspectives

Implement one or both surveys on your campus to...

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

In the early 1990s, Dr. Donald McCabe, of Rutgers University, conducted scholarly and assessment research into academic dishonesty. He surveyed students and faculty about their attitudes toward and actions regarding misconduct such as cheating, plagiarism, and unauthorized collaboration. This work was a major influence on the scholarly literature about academic integrity and was of great use to the dozens of institutions that collaborated with Dr. McCabe to conduct assessments.

When he retired, Dr. McCabe, charged the International Center for Academic Integrity, the organization he helped to found, with continuing his research project. To that end and with the legacy of Dr. McCabe, who died in 2016, in mind, a group of scholars and practitioners led by ICAI President Emeritus David Rettinger was formed to revise and reimagine the McCabe survey.

The group was charged with updating the survey to ensure that the data collected is useful for both scholars for research and institutions for assessment. Revisions were made in consultation with the literature, leading scholars and practitioners in the fields of academic integrity and institutional assessment. Beyond this core group, ICAI members from diverse institutions around the world have participated in revising both the student and faculty surveys, and in providing valuable feedback. We appreciate their efforts.
