  • 6. What is the problem?
    • Students believe the ‘right’ answer has already been written.
    • Students believe the resources they have found are so much better than their own ideas.
    • Students believe their peers may find or write better stuff.
  • 7. What is the problem?
    • Academic integrity and ethics in assessment are values and skills that must be taught.
    • These values and skills must be taught consistently across the College.
    • We must model these values and skills.

    • PLAGIARISM: Using the words, ideas or creations of a person without giving credit. Passing off someone else’s words, ideas or creations as if they were your own.
  • 10. Our response
    • Take a stand! If you hear these, make our position clear:
      • “ everyone does it”
      • “ there was no copyright notice”
      • “ I changed some of the words”
      • “ The website had no author name”
      • “ If it is on the net it is free ”
      • “ no one gets caught”
