Integrity and Plagiarism in the Classroom: An Overview
Disclaimer: This guide is for
informational purposes only.
Although many institutions describe with great detail what type
of conduct constitutes academic dishonesty, most institutions barely
outline what constitutes academic integrity. This guide will attempt
to identify what some of the important scholarship on this issue
has identified as the core meaning of academic integrity, the problem
of academic dishonesty and possible solutions.
As scholars in training, students should appreciate the importance
of academic integrity. Similarly, faculty and administrators must
also acknowledge the importance of academic integrity in higher
education and communicate this in the classroom and on campus. Without
understanding by students, faculty and administrators of the importance
of academic integrity, vibrant academic discourse is stymied. The
information and resources in this guide and in the Virtual Academic
Integrity Laboratory seek to foster greater understanding of the
concept of academic integrity generally.
