Plagiarism Policy

Plagiarism is a particularly serious academic offence and can constitute academic misconduct which is set out in Dorset College’s Learners Handbook. Plagiarism refers to taking someone else’s work and passing off that work as your own. Any thoughts, ideas, or words that are not completely your own must be referenced. The reason for this is that the purpose of the assessment is to assess the student’s knowledge and understanding of the material being assessed by the student creating and expressing their own ideas in their assessment.

Plagiarism may include, but is not limited to the following:

  • Submitting another person’s work as your own, such as another student’s paper, or by purchasing a paper.
  • Using ChatGPT or other AI tools to write or translate your paper. Using a translation tool can be considered academic impropriety because these tools can give you an unfair advantage over other students who have not used these tools. Also, translation and editing tools may be identified by Turnitin as Artificial Intelligence (AI).
  • Quoting from a book, journal, article or website without using a citation.
  • Paraphrasing (putting into your own words) a paragraph from a book, journal, article or website and not using a citation.
  • Changing the words of an original source, but using the ideas from that source without using a citation.
  • Incorporating another writer’s words or phrases within a larger paraphrase, without quotation marks or a citation.
  • Not citing information because you think the information is “common knowledge”.
  • Self-plagiarism – refers to re-using material from a previous paper you wrote, such as a paper you wrote for another module.
  • Forgetting to cite your sources in your work.
  • Not citing correctly.
  • Failing to use quotations around cited material.

It is the policy of Dorset College to be proactive in dealing with cases in which the principles of academic integrity are not upheld, and cheating occurs. Students who engage in such practices will be subject to academic sanctions, including a reduced or fail grade for an assignment. Incidents of academic misconduct will be dealt with in accordance with the Academic Misconduct Policy outlined in the Learners Handbook. APA.
