Student Assessment Information


You must comply with the University's policy on Plagiarism and Academic Misconduct:

Your work will be checked for originality.

Plagiarism is the action or practice of taking and using the thoughts or writings of another, without acknowledgment, as one's own. The following practices constitute acts of plagiarism and are a major infringement of UNE's academic values:

  • where paragraphs, sentences, a single sentence or significant parts of a sentence are copied directly, are not enclosed in quotation marks and appropriately referenced;
  • where direct quotations are not used, but are paraphrased or summarised, and the source of the material is not referenced within the text of the paper; and
  • where an idea which appears elsewhere in any form* is used or developed without reference being made to the author or the source of that idea.

*Some examples of this are books, journals, WWW material, theses, computer stored data and software, lecture notes or tapes.

Your responsibility

It is your responsibility to:

  • read, understand and comply with the policy on Plagiarism and Academic Misconduct found at the website above.
  • familiarise yourself with the conventions of referencing for your discipline(s) - in the School of Science and Technology, you should assume that it is APA style unless otherwise indicated in the details of your assignment;
  • avoid all acts which could be considered plagiarism or academic misconduct;
  • seek assistance from appropriate sources if you become aware that you need more knowledge and skills in relation to academic writing;
  • be aware that when you submit an assignment through the University’s e-Submission system, you are deemed to have signed the plagiarism declaration form;
  • submit a separate signed and dated plagiarism declaration form with every task, report, dissertation or thesis submitted in hard copy for assessment or examination.

Please read and understand the relevant academic policies.
