The International Center for Academic Integrity (ICAI) hosts the Third Annual International Day of Action Against Contract Cheating in partnership with Turnitin on October 17.

Contract cheating occurs when students submit work produced for them by someone else. Turnitin reported at least 7% of students admitted to contract cheating in 2013. According to the ICAI, “As many as 16 million people could be receiving fraudulent certifications…as a result of contract cheating.”

This fraudulent practice is a serious threat to the integrity of higher level education systems across the globe. Contact cheating contributes to nearly 1/5 of the plagiarism found in assignments submitted to Turnitin according to ICAI statistics.

ICAI encourages students, professors, administrators and entire institutions to stand against contact cheating on October 17 this year.

Those who want to participate can get involved by:

Signing the pledge to raise awareness and drive action about this issue.

Declaring Your Opposition on white boards and posting your statements on social media using the following hashtags #DefeatTheCheat #ExcelWithIntegrity.

Advance the Cause by hosting events that will explain the severity of the threat contract cheating poses on academic institutions to students, teachers and other members of the academic community.
