Indiana University Plagiarism Tutorials and Tests: 14 Years of Worldwide Learning Online
We briefly tell our story about the Indiana University Plagiarism Tutorials and Tests (IPTAT) from the original design and development in 2002 through 2016. Widespread cheating on the Certification Test in 2012–2013 required us to redesign the test. The changes resulted in a structure that offered billions and trillions of test combinations for undergraduate and graduate students. These more difficult tests indicated a need for improving the tutorial and for incorporation of First Principles of Instruction. Next, we briefly illustrate how each principle was implemented. Finally, we summarize the usage of the redesigned IPTAT in 2016 and empirical findings on instructional effectiveness.
