Academic Integrity Self-Evaluation Tool for Students


Introduction


Dear Student,

We invite you to use the Academic Integrity Self-Evaluation Tool for Students (AISETS). The purpose of AISETS is to help students evaluate their own knowledge, attitudes and skills regarding academic integrity. Please note that the European Network for Academic Integrity (ENAI) defines academic integrity as “Compliance with ethical and professional principles, standards, practices and consistent system of values, that serves as guidance for making decisions and taking actions in education, research and scholarship” (Glossary for Academic Integrity, pp. 7-8). Your responses to the questions will be used to assess your current status as well as identify areas for development.

Your participation in AISETS is entirely voluntary. This provides an opportunity for you to reflect upon your own study approach and skills and receive some guidance for further development. Your responses will remain anonymous and only available to you. AISETS is designed for your personal use. It is your decision whether or not to make use of this tool.

AISETS has three sections of self-evaluation questions. Your answers to the questions will be assigned scores and linked to feedback. You will receive a score and feedback for each question, for each section of questions as well as for the overall tool. Also, you will receive suggestions about useful materials that you may use for expanding your knowledge and skills.

This tool has been developed by researchers from the ENAI (http://www.academicintegrity.eu/wp/): Inga GAIŽAUSKAITĖ, Irene GLENDINNING, Tomáš FOLTÝNEK, Salim RAZI, Franca MARINO, Marco COSENTINO, Laura RIBEIRO. For more information please contact by email surveys@academicintegrity.eu.

Acknowledgement: The authors of the tool gratefully acknowledge the contributions of the whole ENAI consortium for their feedback in the process of development of the tool.


Directions

It should take approximately 15 minutes to answer the questions. However, you may take as much time as you wish reading through questions, feedback and revising your answers.

Once you have clicked the NEXT button at the end of a section, you cannot return to review or amend the previous page. There is no possibility to save or download your answers and feedback.

NOTE: Throughout the tool we use term “teacher” to refer to different types of teachers of higher education institutions, such as lecturers, supervisors or tutors.


Data protection statement

This tool is not designed for data collection – any dialogue conducted through this questionnaire will only be available to you. 

Only if you provide your explicit consent by ticking respective consent box under the demographic information, we will save your answers for further processing, analysis and research carried out by the European Network for Academic Integrity and/or its member institutions. Even in this case we do not collect any information which would allow identifying a respondent.

Please note that in order to use the tool you are not obliged to identify your country, gender or age and/or consent to provide your answers for further analysis.
