In the spring of 2013, we conducted an all-faculty survey to gather information about international students' writing practices. The survey examined text production from the perspective of appropriate academic conduct in the US university setting. The data gathered included faculty indications of the freqency of a range of behaviors from minor infractions (i.e. unintentionally incorrect source citation) to more serious cases of intentional plagiarism. Faculty also described their methods of dealing with these issues and the frequency that they reported cases of misconduct to the Office of Students Conduct.

We are currently (Sept 2013) in the planning stage of an international student satisfaction survey that will indicate areas in which we can improve students' experiences at WOU.
