Academic Honesty

for Extended Essay (& all IB work!)

Types of Academic Dishonesty

PLAGIARISM...

“is defined as the representation, intentionally or unwittingly, of the ideas, words or work of another person without proper, clear and explicit acknowledgment. The use of translated materials, unless indicated and acknowledged, is also considered plagiarism.” (Academic Honesty in the Diploma Programme) 

COLLUSION...

“is defined as supporting academic misconduct by another student, for example allowing one’s work to be copied or submitted for assessment by another.” (Academic Honesty in the Diploma Programme) 

DUPLICATION OF WORK...

is defined as the presentation of the same work for different assessment components and/or Diploma Programme requirements" (Academic Honesty in the Diploma Programme) 

FABRICATION...

is the use of invented or misrepresentative information. Fabrication most often occurs in the sciences, when students create or alter experimental data. Listing a source in your works cited that you did not actually use in your research is also fabrication. (SPC. LibGuides: Plagiarism & Academic Integrity: Types of Academic Dishonesty.”) 

MISREPRESENTATION...

includes lying to an instructor in an attempt to increase your grade, or lying to an instructor when confronted with allegations of academic dishonesty. (SPC. LibGuides: Plagiarism & Academic Integrity: Types of Academic Dishonesty.”) 

  • IN RELATION TO IB EXAMS...

  • Misconduct during an IB examination includes taking unauthorized material into an examination room, disruptive behaviour and communicating with others during the examination. 

  • Communication about the content of an examination 24 hours before or after the examination with others outside their school community is also considered a breach to IB regulations. (Academic Honesty in the Diploma Programme)
