When students submit work to their teachers for evaluation, they imply that the work is the result of only their own efforts and is not in any way the result of the efforts of others. Academic honesty is essential for the development and acquisition of knowledge. Any student who has copied another person’s work can expect to receive a mark of “0” on the essay, report, exam, etc. for. The same penalty of zero will apply for copying exact wording from research material found in books, articles, magazines, the Internet, etc. without giving credit to the original author. However, for the first offence, the student is counseled by the teacher and allowed to do a make-up assignment. For any subsequent offence, the mark remains at zero.
