We Want Your Help! Contract Cheating Research Study

Have you faced an Academic Integrity allegation?

Did your allegation involve Contract Cheating?

How did you find the whole process?

We are looking for students who have received an allegation of Contract Cheating from T2 2017 onwards to take part in a DUSA/Deakin research project. 

Our research project is looking at the Student Experience of Contract Cheating Allegations and will help us improve support for students throughout the whole process. 

All we ask is that you have a chat with one of our team so we can record your experiences. Anything you tell us will be treated confidentially and will be anonymised. Taking part in this research won’t affect anything between you and Deakin or DUSA.

If you are over 18, have had an allegation of Contract Cheating and are willing to talk to us, email seccaproject@deakin.edu.au or contact the DUSA Research Coordinator by email at penelope.p@deakin.edu.au or by phone on 9246 8648.

What is Contract Cheating?

Contract Cheating can include:

• Buying an assignment
• Selling your assignment
• Completing an assignment for another student
• Asking someone else to do your assignment
• Uploading your assignment to a website to access other assignments or study notes.
