Plagiarism is the copying or reproduction of any work without the proper recognition of the original authors. Plagiarism is not acceptable on a school assignment. Examples of plagiarism include:

  • Copying more than five words in a row, or paraphrasing from text found in a book, magazine, software program, website or television program without giving appropriate credit.
  • Handing in work (for credit), which is the same as, or essentially the same as another student’s work, or allowing another student to copy your work.  Group work is encouraged, but the work submitted must reflect your own ideas.

Students who copy the work of others in the above or any other manner may receive a zero on the submitted assignment and may face further consequences for repeated violations.
