Universities need to use multiple methods in order to ascertain authenticity of students thesis work. …
SciPro was found to lead to a major increase in completed theses when implemented at Stockholm University’s Department of Computer Science. It led to an increase from 53 to 570 over five years, with a only a doubling of supervisors.
As students are always informed, knowing what to do, how to do it and when it needs to be done, students are able to work independently without needing as much supervisor time.
With the structure in place, supervisors can use their hours on their students’ essays rather than on administrative work related to their students’ essays.
