Student seated at computer wearing headphones Reusing a paper that you wrote for another class. Copying a paragraph from an article and changing every other word. Collaborating on a solo take-home exam. These are all examples of academic integrity gone wrong (i.e., failures or mistakes). In this module, we’ll discuss why these actions are violations of academic honesty, and why it matters.


In This Module, You Will:

  • Recognize academic dishonesty in its various forms, including plagiarism and cheating
  • Avoid common pitfalls that prevent academic honesty
  • Consider the significant penalties for academic dishonesty at UO and beyond
