Feature Articles

Communication technologies have increased academic integrity violations in nursing programs. Previous methods to reduce cheating may not be sufficient to circumvent the technology-savvy student. Teaching outcomes have improved using technology such as the student response system. The author discusses how the use of a student response system reduced academic integrity violations during examinations, improved student interest and participation in class, and reduced faculty workload when evaluating student performance.
