Academic Integrity Module
What is Academic Misconduct?
Academic misconduct occurs when staff or students disregard the values of academic integrity. UniSA's Academic Integrity Policy (University of South Australia, 2023) identifies the different types of academic misconduct, which are explained in more detail in this module.
Some examples include:
plagiarism (copying work from other sources; not accurately following referencing guidelines)
cheating in exams
copying or falsifying documents or data
getting other people to write your work
doing someone else's work for them
collusion (working with other students on assessable work when it's not permitted)
contract cheating (paying someone to do your work, or using software or tools to do your work)
file sharing (e.g. to exchange exam questions or assignments)
