Felicity Prentice | PhD Candidate, Edith Cowan University

In this video, we chat with Felicity Prentice, PhD candidate at Edith Cowan University, who unpacks the factors influencing an academic’s decision to report - or not report - suspicions of contract cheating by students, grounding the discussion in her work and research for her PhD on this same topic.  

Felicity sheds light on the lesser-known challenges that problematise detection of contract cheating. Specifically, how educators and markers who develop a gut-feel of cheating amongst students are presented with the burden of proof to collect and write up evidence which is a labour-intensive exercise. Further still, the need to send it upstream where the chain of accountability can provide inconsistent outcomes.  

What steps can institutions take to cultivate an environment in which educators feel supported in reporting suspected contract cheating for further investigation? Watch the video to hear Felicity’s perspective.
