Title: Academic qualification acceptability and authenticity : a comparative risk assessment of approaches employed by the recruitment and higher education sectors of Australia.
Author: Brown, George Maxwell
Issue Date: 2007
School/Discipline: School of Education
Abstract: To investigate the extent of the problem of use of fraudulent academic qualifications in Australia, the study used two approaches under the theoretical framework of risk management. Firstly, the author assessed the potential risk of Australian academic qualifications being falsified and available on the Internet, through an exploratory research question. Secondly, equivalency testing was used to assess how far existing verification tools were being employed by three separate users of academic qualifications in Australia. --p. xix.
