Academic Integrity Module
Breaching exam procedures
What the policy says:
Academic misconduct includes 'breaches of the examination procedures that have been determined to be breaches of academic Integrity (see clause 6.4)' (UniSA 2021, p.44).
What this means:
Exams are designed to test your knowledge of course content and how you apply it under time constraints. Cheating in exams is a form of academic misconduct, as it gives you an unfair advantage over others. You will be identified as cheating if you:
- use mobile phones or other electronic devices, cheat cards or answer booklets
- use textbooks, dictionaries, written notes or a calculator unless you're permitted to use them. Always check the exam timetable site to verify what you can and can't bring to the exam
- speak with other students sitting the exam - this may be seen as sharing information
- do anything in the videos below.
