Abstract

Terminal exams moved to online in response to the COVID19 emergency restrictions. Moving to alternative forms of assessment in a short timescale presents challenges for academic integrity. Academic integrity revolves around determining that work submitted is by the enrolled learner. This research proposes a Terminal Assignment Based Assessment Process Model that provides faculty with structured guidance to address academic integrity issues. The process model describes the roles and responsibilities of Academic and Administrative staff in the creation of assessments that are valid and reliable. Guidance revolves around assessment variability and information use. Assessment variability involves introducing variability into the question so that each student works on a unique problem. Information use revolves around the application of knowledge rather than knowledge recall. The process model was applied successfully over four semesters. This research discusses the process model and guidance with an applied examples of assessment variability and information use.
