Introduction to Academic Integrity
This short 10 minute module aims to inform you of the basics of Academic Integrity. It is important that you are aware of the academic standards required of you while studying at Griffith University.
When you study at university you are required to act in an honest way, be responsible for your actions, and show fairness in every part of your work. This is academic integrity.
Breaches of academic integrity, also referred to as academic misconduct, include:
- cheating in exams or tests
- fabricating results or data
- misrepresentation (presenting an untrue statement)
- plagiarism (when work of another is represented as your own original work)
- assisting other students to cheat by selling assignments or giving them access to your assignment.
Academic misconduct can occur when students feel like they are under pressure, or don't have enough time to complete work with integrity. By planning ahead, you can help to manage these situations before they happen.
