We are proposing a change to how the Honor Code works in Assignments. Research has shown that when the Honor Code is visible in a classroom or learning environment, students cheat less. With this in mind, when the "show Honor Code" box is checked in Assignments, we would like it to show prior to the student reading the assignment details. This would also be consistent to how it works in Tests & Quizzes. When you select the option in Tests & Quizzes, the Honor Code shows before a student begins the assessment.
When a student clicks on an assignment title in the list of assignments, the assignment details do not show automatically if the setting "show Honor Code" is selected. Instead, the student will be required to check a box to confirm they have read the Honor Code (with text on screen or modal?) and then click Save. After Save is clicked, the assignment details show. The check box and Save actions should only be required once. See the attached mock up for details.
