Abstract: The Academic Honesty On-line System was originally developed in 2011 and had compelling results, decreasing plagiarism by over 50%. The system took minimal time and effort to implement since it was automated. This article focuses on its applicability to additional environments including K-12 schools, undergraduate education, graduate education, and across different countries. The developers of the original system worked with each of the constituents to adapt the AHOS to fit different contexts. Pilot results indicate that the modifications for specific environments are useful and are dependent on the differences from the original site.
