Thomas Lancaster first used the term contract cheating as part of a 2006 research study and provides the following description of the practice:

Contract cheating describes the process through which students can have original work produced for them, which they can then submit as if this were their own work. Often this involves the payment of a fee and this can be facilitated using online auction sites.”

Part of this year’s Academic Integrity Awareness campaign, we invite you to join us in the TLC conference room on Tuesday, October 10th at 2pm for the webcast What Is Contract Cheating and What Can We Do About it? hosted by the International Center for Academic Integrity.

The webinar is 1-hour long and will be followed by a discussion facilitated by Jarret Dyer, Coordinator of Specialized Testing Services.
