This three-day education summit hosted experts and professionals in the education and learning sector who shared their views on grade manipulation and academic fraud.
LAS VEGAS - March 6, 2023 - PRLog -- Education 2.0 Conference's Winter Edition in the USA took place on December 19-21, 2022 at Mandalay Bay. In one of the panel discussions, industry experts shed light on the topic of grade manipulation and academic fraud and how they've become very real problems in question.
A prevalent issue in the industry today, grade manipulation refers to the practice of changing grades to improve a student's academic standing. This involves anything from hacking into the school's grading system to trying to bribe an educational professional or administrator to change a grade.
One of the panelists shared that organizations such as The International Council on Higher Education are leading the charge in investigating grade manipulation, highlighting countries where it is more prevalent. In particular, certain countries in Africa and Asia are facing these issues more acutely. Cases of scammy universities awarding false grades and falsifying academic transcripts are increasingly reported in these areas, reviews Education 2.0 Conference.
Education institutions as well as corporate businesses don't take too kindly to having a grade manipulation report on your resume. Academic fraud on the other hand refers to plagiarism and the deliberate falsification and alteration of the research work and data of others.
Educational institutions suffer heavily in terms of reputational and possible legal complications in some scenarios. Fraudulent and scam-related activities being reported out of any institution can cause irreparable damage and affect future applications from students and investors in the education field. Allocation of resources leading to time consumption and financial stress for institutions is another setback caused by academic fraud and grade manipulation.
The panelists at the Education 2.0 Conference highlighted implementing stricter consequences and monitoring as a great foundation to build upon when it comes to preventive measures against such scam offenses. By enforcing legal consequences and immediate suspension for any students or staff engaging in such fraudulent behaviors, educational institutions can showcase a zero-tolerance policy against academic fraud and grade manipulation scams. Implementation of anti-plagiarism software and other uses of technology to streamline monitoring activities can help institutions gain a firm grip on dealing with such scam offenses, according to this education summit.
