Plagiarism and Assessment Dishonesty The New York College (NYC) is committed to ensuring that all students behave with integrity when undertaking an assessment. Therefore, it is essential that you understand the principles underlying assessment integrity and behave in a manner according to these principles. Please read the following information and please ensure you have access to and have read the plagiarism and assessment dishonesty policy. This policy can be found on the NYC’s website and is also discussed in your induction prior to commencing the course. What is Plagiarism and Assessment Dishonesty? Plagiarism is copying, paraphrasing or summarising, without appropriate acknowledgement, the words, ideas, scholarship and intellectual property of another person. This remains plagiarism whether or not it is with the knowledge or consent of that other person. Plagiarism has also taken place when direct use of others' words is not indicated, for example by inverted commas or indentation, in addition to appropriate citation of the source. Each individual student is responsible for ensuring that they are fully informed about methods of acknowledgement appropriate to any piece of assessable work that they submit.

NEW YORK COLLEGE Assessment dishonesty includes plagiarism, collusion, the fabrication or deliberate misrepresentation of data, and failure to adhere to the rules regarding examinations in such a way as to gain unfair assessment advantage. Collusion is the involvement of more than one individual in an instance of assessment dishonesty. All parties involved in such collusion are in breach of the principles of assessment honesty (unless there is good evidence of innocent involvement). "Collusion" needs to be distinguished from "collaboration", defined for the purposes of this document as work jointly undertaken and produced. Incidence of Plagiarism or Assessment Dishonesty If the New York College believes any act of plagiarism and assessment dishonesty has occurred, the student/s will be contacted and will be given an opportunity to explain their case. Should this be repeated the student will be penalised. Penalties include re-submitting the assessment task or unit and for repeated offences, re-sitting the unit at student’s own cost or cancellation of enrolment. How information will be handled: All information regarding an incident of plagiarism or assessment dishonesty will be recorded as per NYC’s Plagiarism and Assessment Dishonesty Policy. Only relevant
