Cheating And Plagiarism Policy

XYNA's Cheating And Plagiarism Policy

Plagiarism is an act of theft known by many names: cheating, borrowing, stealing or copying. Plagiarism is intentionally or unintentionally using another person’s words or ideas and presenting these as one’s own. It includes submitting an essay written by another student, allowing a student to submit your work, obtaining one from the many services provided on the Internet or copying sections from various documents and not acknowledging the original source. It is a serious offence that may result in significant academic consequences.

Students must understand that the tests/exams they complete and the assignments they submit for evaluation must be their own work and that cheating and plagiarism will not be condoned. Xyna has strategies for helping students understand the gravity of such behaviour and the importance of acknowledging the work of others. We work on prevention of cheating and plagiarizing, detection of incidents of cheating and plagiarizing and consequences for students who cheat or plagiarize.

Xyna International High School requires academic honesty from all students. This requires students to always submit original work and to give credit to all research sources correctly and consistently.
