What does academic dishonesty include?
Academic dishonesty includes:
- Fabricating data
- Inappropriate collaboration
- Multiple submissions
We understand that the definition for some of these issues may differ depending on the cultural practices of your own country, however, ASU students are expected to abide by ASU’s Academic Integrity Policy.
Cultural differences in understanding academic integrity may include:
Valuing sources as the authority and believing there is no need to cite the author when using their words.
When using materials from the internet or any other source, you must give full and appropriate attribution.
The notion that using an author’s own words is a form of respect.
Claiming credit for or work done by another is a form of disrespect.
The importance of helping a fellow student in need.
Providing inappropriate aid to another person in connection with any Academic Evaluation or assignment, including the unauthorized use of camera phones, text messages, photocopies, notes or other means to copy or photograph materials used or intended for Academic Evaluation is not allowed.
While ASU supports the cultural identity of all students, we strongly encourage students to reach out for support if they have any questions about ASU’s Academic Integrity Policy. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
We’re providing some tips and resources to help you avoid academic integrity issues. If you have any questions about an assignment, test or your professor’s expectations, it is highly recommended that you speak with your professor or teaching assistant for clarification.
