The 2021 Exam Conduct and Integrity Report

A Benchmarking Study of Integrity in Academic and Professional Assessment Settings

When the pandemic forced face-to-face exams online, academic integrity suffered. Now that we’re in a more established post-pandemic landscape, many are under the assumption that cheating has slowed. The data, however, paints a drastically different picture. Our 2021 Exam Conduct and Integrity Report analyzed millions of academic and professional exam sessions in 2019, 2020, and 2021 to compare the frequency and number of confirmed integrity incidents – and concluded that test-takers nationwide cheated more in 2021 than ever before.

In this report, you will learn:

  • Exam integrity incident trends from 2019-2021
  • Examples of test-taker cheating tactics
  • The definitions of industry vocabulary like “unpermitted resources,” “active interventions,” and “confirmed breaches”
  • The benefits of pre-exam onboarding with a live proctor
