Academic Integrity and Assessment

Academic Dishonesty

  • Academic dishonesty includes practices such as plagiarism, cheating on tests, examinations and assignments.
  • Academic dishonesty may result in the suspension of online privileges.

Plagiarism

  • When you borrow another writer's words and/ or ideas and include them in your work, you must acknowledge this whether it is a direct quotation or a restatement of an idea.
  • Failure to do so is a form of academic dishonesty known as plagiarism and will result in a mark of zero for the work submitted.
