Academic Integrity What is academic integrity? Academic integrity means that all work you submit is created by you and is an original representation of your work. What are some examples of academic integrity violations? Just make sure what you submit, as your work, is your work. Two types of violations. One is “plagiarism” and the other is “cheating. ” Examples of plagiarism are, but not limited to the following: • Copying and pasting a report from the Internet and representing it as your own work • Copying any other work and not properly citing authorship Examples of cheating are, but not limited to the following: • Providing questions/answers/ work to another student • Receiving questions/answers/work from another student What will happen to me if I plagiarize or cheat? A variety of consequences will be administered when you are caught cheating or plagiarizing. These consequences range from resubmission of an assignment up to expulsion from FLVS coursework for up to one year.
Now that I know this…. . How in the world do I get started? Great question!!!!
