Q. How can we ensure academic integrity when our students are learning online during school closure?

We can assess in the MYP, through school closure. We must communicate a culture of trust and responsibility.

  • Awareness that students need to behave ethically. This includes open-book.  
  • Viva-voce and discussions are valid. 
  • This is similar to when assessment is sent home anyway. We need a range of tools to ensure authenticity. 
  • Consider the scale and mode of assessment. 
  • Ensure simple, clear instructions and no ambiguity of where to submit, so there is reduced confusion.
