As a graduate student and parent of elementary students, I’d like to share some feedback regarding academic integrity.
I became aware of an instance at my college in which a student used ChatGPT to write a paper. The student’s professor became suspicious based on fictitious references that ChatGPT generated for the paper. This student will face consequences that may effect their ability to pursue the degree that they desired.
My recommendation, if this isn’t already in place, is that if a user asks ChatGPT to write an academic report, that the AI would respond with a notice about academic integrity, and encouragement to pursue peer-reviewed research. Perhaps the AI could even provide advice for writing an academic paper, and point the user to websites where scholarly articles can be found.
