Assessment Offences
Academic offences include plagiarism, cheating, collusion, copying work and reusing your own work among others.
The University takes academic offences very seriously and this can lead to expulsion. We make every effort to ensure that the students will avoid from committing such offences. The need in maintaining the order in examination and non-examination is to preserve the highest standard of academic integrity. Students are reminded to produce and submit their original work.
Definitions of Assessment Offences Plagiarism
Plagiarism can be defined as the significant use of other people's work and the submission of it as though it were one's own in assessed coursework (such as dissertations, essays, experiments etc.). This includes: • Copying from another student's work;
• Copying text without acknowledgement;
• Submitting work and claiming it to be own when it has been produced by another group; and
• Submitting group work without acknowledging all contributors.
The university uses software packages to detect plagiarism.
Cheating
Cheating in examinations can be defined as trying to gain unfair advantage over fellow students.
This includes:
• Having notes, programmable calculators or any other method to secure the information which are not allowed in the examination, whether the student use it or not;
• Having any mobile phone or other communication devices in the exam room;
• Copying from the examination script of another candidate;
• Helping another candidate; and • Trying to bribe respective lecturers to obtain good marks.
Collusion
Collusion is a form of agreement between two or more people to act with the intention to deceive an assessor as to who was responsible for producing the material submitted for assessment. The agreement may be overt (openly discussed) or covert (not specifically
discussed but implied). Using someone else’s work, words, images, ideas or discoveries is equal to stealing the hard work. This includes:
• agreeing with others to cheat;
• getting someone else to produce part or all your work;
• copying the work of another person (with their permission);
• submitting work from essay banks;
• paying someone to produce work for you; and • allowing another student to copy your own work.
Students are advised to avoid copying and using other people’s work without citation and acknowledgement. It is compulsory for students to include the references and the source of information. This will allow students to avoid plagiarism.
Procedures for Assessment Offences
If students are caught committing the offence, a report of offence will be written. Students will be called for a mini hearing whereby students can justify their action. The University has the right to suspend or even terminate the student should University found the action as a serious offence. Kindly refer to MAHSA Student Handbook for more details.
