The Problem is Bigger Than You Think

When students engage in contract cheating, they earn credit for work they didn't do and material they didn't learn—putting the reputation of students and institutions at risk.

Sixteen percent of students admit to paying a third party to complete their work.

67 percent of instructors say they may not act on suspicions of contract cheating due to insufficient evidence to support their claims.

Ten percent decline in number of university applications an institution receives following a scandal.

Be Part of the Solution

“Contract cheating today is a big problem as commercial sites use increasingly sophisticated means to target students. Custom written work is increasingly difficult for educators to detect and turn into real evidence.”
