The rise in academic cheating in the education settings has had a detrimental effect on the overall quality of degrees and certificates conferred to graduates, while also tarnishing the reputation of the education sector. The advent of Artificial Intelligence (AI) has underscored the significance of authentic assessments especially because AI systems possess remarkable humanlike abilities to search extensive databases and generate academic reports and essays that often surpass the quality of work produced by teachers and students. The advent of AI has therefore seen a renewed focus on exploring the role of authentic assessment design in addressing the pervasive issue of academic integrity breaches. Relying on plagiarism detecting tools such as Turnitin, GPT-2 Output detector, and GPT-zero is not a sustainable strategy. Through an extensive literature review methodology, this study explores the viability of authentic assessments to promote academic integrity. Authentic assessments ask students to apply their knowledge and skills in real-world contexts, demonstrating their ability to think critically, solve complex problems, and showcase their understanding of the subject matter, fostering a culture of academic integrity. This study contributes to the current body of knowledge on authentic assessments and academic integrity by providing a practical example of an assignment in tourism studies that align with the principles of authenticity by mirroring real-life scenarios and tasks, encouraging students to demonstrate their competencies thereby promoting integrity in the learning process.
