Academic Integrity Module

Providing assistance when not permitted

What the policy says:

Academic misconduct includes 'providing assistance to a student in the presentation of individual work, unless this is specifically allowed in the course outline’ (UniSA 2021, p.44).

What this means:

It is unacceptable for you to provide significant assistance to other students to complete their assignments.

While it is acceptable to talk to your fellow students and give them advice, you must not write, rewrite or produce any part of their assignment. If you do, the work they submit will not be entirely their own, and they will be guilty of misconduct. In addition, you too will have committed misconduct because you provided significant assistance where it was not permitted.

What to do:

Don't help to write, rewrite or produce another student's assignment

 Don't allow another student to read or copy your assignment in either paper or electronic format.
