What if you disagree on the assessment outcome?
You can appeal against a decision made in regards to your assessment. An appeal should only be made if you have been assessed as ‘Not Yet Competent’ against a specific unit and you feel you have sufficient grounds to believe that you are entitled to be assessed as competent. You must be able to adequately demonstrate that you have the skills and experience to be able to meet the requirements of units you are appealing the assessment of.
Your trainer will outline the appeals process, which is available to the student. You can request a form to make an appeal and submit it to your trainer, the course coordinator, or the administration officer. The AHIC will examine the appeal and you will be advised of the outcome within 14 days. Any additional information you wish to provide may be attached to the appeal form.
Academic Integrity is about the honest presentation of your academic work. It means acknowledging the work of others while developing your own insights, knowledge and ideas.
As a student, you are required to:
- Undertake studies and research responsibly and with honesty and integrity
- Ensure that academic work is in no way falsified
- Seek permission to use the work of others, where required
- Acknowledge the work of others appropriately
- Take reasonable steps to ensure other students cannot copy or misuse your work.
Plagiarism means to take and use another person’s ideas and or manner of expressing them and to pass them off as your own by failing to give appropriate acknowledgement. This includes material sourced from the internet, RTO staff, other students, and from published and unpublished work.
Plagiarism occurs when you fail to acknowledge that the ideas or work of others are being used, which includes:
- Paraphrasing and presenting work or ideas without a reference
- Copying work either in whole or in part
- Presenting designs, codes or images as your own work
- Using phrases and passages verbatim without quotation marks or referencing the author or web page
- Reproducing lecture notes without proper acknowledgement.
Collusion means unauthorized collaboration on assessable work (written, oral or practical) with other people. This occurs when a student presents group work as their own or as the work of someone else.
Collusion may be with another RTO student or with individuals or student’s external to the RTO. This applies to work assessed by any educational and training body in Australia or overseas.
Collusion occurs when you work without the authorization of the teaching staff to:
- Work with one or more people to prepare and produce work
- Allow others to copy your work or share your answer to an assessment task
- Allow someone else to write or edit your work (without rto approval)
- Write or edit work for another student
- Offer to complete work or seek payment for completing academic work for other students.
Both collusion and plagiarism can occur in group work. For examples of plagiarism, collusion and academic misconduct in group work please refer to the RTO’s policy on Academic integrity, plagiarism and collusion.
Plagiarism and collusion constitute cheating. Disciplinary action will be taken against students who engage in plagiarism and collusion as outlined in RTO’s policy.
Proven involvement in plagiarism or collusion may be recorded on students’ academic file and could lead to disciplinary action.
