Sharing any assignment (e.g., exams, quizzes, reports, etc) and course material/content in public sites and with other students from Concordia or other institutions goes against academic integrity and can lead to sanctions and infraction. It also demonstrates a complete lack of respect for the work of professors and instructors.
We faculty put 100s of hours every semester for each course and many of these hours are taken away from our personal time, including time we don’t spend with our families. Please respect us and the time we dedicate to your training.
Sharing any material is a high academic infraction that can have consequences to your records even if found out after your graduation.
Please visit the Concordia website on academic integrity and contact me if you have any questions: https://www.concordia.ca/conduct/academic-integrity
PLEASE RESPECT THE WORK OF YOUR INSTRUCTORS
Sharing course material and assignments also demonstrates a lack of respect for the work of your instructors that put a lot of their time into your education.
WHAT YOU CAN and CAN’T DO in ASSIGNMENTS and EXAMS?
The most common offense under the Academic Code of Conduct is plagiarism which the Code defines as “the presentation of the work of another person as one’s own or without proper acknowledgement.” This could be material copied word for word from books, journals, internet sites, professor’s course notes, etc. It could be material that is paraphrased but closely resembles the original source. It could be the work of a fellow student, for example, an answer on a quiz, data for a lab report, a paper or assignment completed by another student. It might be a paper purchased through one of the many available sources. Plagiarism does not refer to words alone - it can also refer to copying images, graphs, tables, and ideas. “Presentation” is not limited to written work. It also includes oral presentations, computer assignments and artistic works. Finally, if you translate the work of another person into French or English and do not cite the source, this is also plagiarism.
In simple words: DO NOT COPY, PARAPHRASE OR TRANSLATE ANYTHING FROM ANYWHERE WITHOUT SAYING FROM WHERE YOU OBTAINED IT! Source: https://www.concordia.ca/students/academic-integrity.html
The use of ChatGPT and other AI systems
The use of ChatGPT and other AI systems is prohibited unless clearly stated in the assignment instructions. Any submission that is found to have used ChatGPT or other AI systems without explicit permission will be considered a violation of the academic integrity policy (i.e., it will be considered plagiarism). It is the responsibility of the student to ensure that all work submitted is their own original creation, and to seek clarification from the instructor if there is any doubt about the use of ChatGPT and other AI systems. We will have open discussions about these tools and the ethical implications of these to learning and assessment.
