Academic integrity

Schools, teachers, parents/carers and others who support students in their learning — including the QCAA — have responsibility for promoting and maintaining academic integrity.

Schools promote academic integrity when they:

  • emphasise the importance of ethical academic conduct and scholarship
  • develop school processes to support sound academic practice
  • ensure teachers, students and parents/carers have a clear shared understanding of expectations for academic integrity
  • implement programs to improve students’ academic skills
  • explicitly teach the use of appropriate processes and materials in academic work, including an understanding of ownership of information, ideas and images
  • communicate the consequences and implications of academic misconduct clearly throughout the school community.
