Academic Honesty

Academic Honesty Policy

In order to implement the IB philosophy, Yusr International Schools (YIS) encourage students to inquire and think critically and creatively. Students demonstrate principles of academic honesty as part and parcel of their involvement in the PYP in order to help them talk and write about their learning experience and understand how their ideas and views were built. Therefore, we encourage our students to be:

  • Inquirers
  • Knowledgeable
  • Thinkers
  • Communicators
  • Principled
  • Open-minded
  • Caring
  • Risk-takers
  • Balanced
  • Reflective

 

Purpose of the YIS Academic Honesty Policy

Academic honesty instils honesty and assists in personal development to produce principled students. Students at YIS will be taught the following:

  • Using the library and internet
  • Referencing different sources
  • Taking note-facts
  • Demonstrating the learner profile attributes of being principled, balanced and inquirers
  • Understanding what plagiarism is
  • Not taking others work as their own

 

Student practices of Academic Honesty

  • Taking responsibility for their own work
  • Working individually, in pairs/groups whilst acknowledging contributions of other members
  • Using the library and ICT resources responsibly
  • Referencing different sources in order not to plagiarise others; work

 

Academic Dishonesty

Academic dishonesty can be defined as cheating during quizzes/tests; copying and taking credit for other peoples’ work or ideas; using books or other materials during tests unless instructed otherwise; independent work that was not attempted by the students themselves; inappropriate help from parents or tutors; falsifying a parent’s/guardian’s signature.

 

Academic dishonesty requires teachers to advise and make constant corrections. Consequences of academic dishonesty include – but not limited to – the following:

  • Reflecting on the actions that they have done
  • Being placed on academic and/or behavioural probation
  • Retaking a quiz/test
  • Parents being informed
