Integrity Games is a research based teaching tool on academic integrity aimed at university undergraduate students from all disciplines.

How to use the tool in teaching

Integrity Games is a research based learning platform on academic integrity aimed at undergraduate university students across all faculties. It is designed to spark interest, reflection and learning through four gamified cases and a library of central concepts.

Integrity Games is built on the idea that academic integrity is more than avoidance of clear-cut cheating. It also involves knowledge of the basic requirements for academic integrity, and competence in navigating the many grey zones between outright cheating and good practice.

Many of the academic integrity issues students face – such as freeriding in group work or handling deviating data - are not covered by the local disciplinary rules, and even if they are, the interpretation of the rules may be context dependent.

Navigating grey zones therefore requires attention to context and reflection on the broader aims of higher education.

Integrity Games encourages this through engaging and realistic cases drawn from a major study on the integrity issues commonly faced by undergraduate students in Europe.

The tool in designed to be flexible. To get an overview, watch this video.

Suggestions and information on how to use the games in teaching:

The core of Integrity Games is the cases.

There is a case on citation practice and plagiarism, one on collaboration and getting help on individual assignments and several on collection, analysis and presentation of data. The data cases address different issues and will be relevant for students in different disciplines.

  • The qualitative data case deals with issues commonly faced by students in the social sciences and humanities working with qualitative data. This includes protection of sometimes vulnerable interview subjects.
  • The quantitative data case deals with issues commonly faced by students in the natural and quantitative social sciences working with anonymous quantitative data.

The introductory quiz

To help students decide which cases are most relevant for them, and to spark their interest in the different topics, the students are encouraged to start by taking the introductory quiz.

Once finished, the students will be provided with recommendations of which cases are most relevant to them.
