Preventative measures for academic integrity
Currently, I use the Adobe Classroom in a Book series for AI, PS, and ID. The problem I find is that students in my 16 week class will slack too much and come crunch time, make provisions to "complete" their work. I'm interested in your thoughts on how to prevent cheating with these lessons. I have attached due dates to the lessons where before they were just to be complete by the end of the semester.
I've considered the following:
1. Taint the lesson END files with metadata and distribute the tainted version. Use bridge to see if the metadata comes back as mine or their own. If mine...it's a File > Save As which is cheating. But that doesn't prevent a Select All / Copy / Paste in a different document scenario.
2. Taint the lesson END files with hidden/locked layer content and distribute the tainted version. Same concerns as #1.
3. Taint the lesson END files with subtle changes that will not be achieved if actually doing the lessons. Ex. Color change or use of specific Spot Color somewhere. Font size change. Modified (incriminating) text in body copy (ex.
Lorem rerit, seque copied end file voluptae volorpore rectius).
Like all of us, I want a fair and just learning environment that promotes growth and understanding. I want to take the focus away from the stress of a deadline and put it in the book...but have deadlines to drive the timeline. Any help is appreciated.
