Contract Cheating 2019

As part of my campaign to tackle contract cheating issues (academic misconduct), I'm proposing that the university offers an official draft checking for all academic assessments.

In this case it would be both beneficial for both the university and students; as students would receive feedback before they submit the final piece of work, and university would be able to identify those who need more help and signpost them to the right support services. By submitting a draft through TurnItIn, students automatically prove that their work is their own and a copy of their draft work is saved. This would eliminate a possible further attraction to buy or plagiarise academic work as students would be receiving feedback which would help them to stay on track and get the best possible outcome.
