Survey on Academic Honesty and Plagiarism

We are interested in finding out about the experiences of teaching staff in our Faculty with regard to students’ academic honesty. We would be very grateful if you could complete the questionnaire below. The questionnaire takes only about 10 minutes to complete. Feedback from this will help to inform our L&T Forum on Thursday, 25 March 2010. Please respond to this survey by Thursday, 18 March 2010.

The questions below examine the issue of academic honesty in relation to written, visual or oral work submitted by students for assessment purposes.

Which of the categories below would you generally consider to be negligent plagiarism and which would you consider to be dishonest plagiarism? (You will only be able to click on one option).
