Kira Talent Releases eBook: 'Admissions Fraud: The Truth Behind the Application', to Shine Light on the Growing Issue

Company Debuts Comprehensive eBook to Detail the Consequences of Cheating on Admissions Applications and Offers Technology as a Solution

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - Apr 21, 2015) - Kira Talent, creators of the first video admissions platform for higher education, Kira Academic, today announces the release of its eBook: Admissions Fraud: The Truth Behind the Application. The eBook shines a light on admissions application fraud, a growing issue in higher education that still needs to be more firmly addressed. The innovative company wants to create real dialogue around the problem and discuss how new technology is helping combat admissions fraud.

The eBook covers the whole spectrum of admissions fraud, and readers will:

  • Learn about the varying degrees of application fraud, ranging from simple editing services all the way up to full-service admissions consultants who offer students guaranteed acceptance.
  • Go undercover with the Kira team and read about their experience hiring a black market admissions company to write an MBA admissions essay.
  • Learn about the prevalence of fraud among domestic and international applicants and the impact it has on classroom dynamic.
  • Learn how to fight back against application fraud with advice from admissions directors who have it figured out.

"Admissions fraud is becoming a huge issue for schools, and this problem has been swept under the rug for too long because it can be a touchy subject -- we'd rather face it head on and eliminate the issue. We actually want to call attention to it and push schools to change the way they assess students," said Craig Morantz, CEO of Kira Talent. "Technology to help end admissions fraud is available and we hope that by bringing attention to this issue more schools will be persuaded to change their admissions process to better authenticate students."

Kira Academic is the only talent assessment platform that assists schools in selecting well-rounded students by helping them assess skills, such as verbal communication and presentation skills, which are not easily determined by test scores or grades. While traditional admissions applications can provide some of this insight, Kira Academic has the added benefit of helping schools guard against application fraud by giving them the ability to authenticate each applicant.
