URegina says pandemic, AI contributing to increase in academic misconduct

As the University of Regina continues to investigate alleged cases of academic misconduct, it has shared further insights on the factors contributing to this growing issue. URegina spokesperson Paul Dederick told CTV News that the number of reported academic integrity concerns in all faculties has increased in recent years. “One contributing factor academic officials are finding is that some students who completed the majority of their high school during the pandemic, […] are not as experienced with formal exam regulations,” said Dederick. “Improper use of artificial intelligence tools is another factor leading to an increase in academic misconduct concerns.”
