Academic honesty is a set of values and skills that promote personal integrity and good practice in teaching and learning. Students at SSIS learn to appreciate the merits of academic honesty and are taught to be fully aware of the consequences of dishonest behaviour.
In this digital and information age, our teachers seek to bring about an awareness and application of academic integrity even from Primary School so that it becomes second nature for our students.
Collaboration, a working together to obtain information for a common goal, is an open and cooperative behaviour, collusion, on the other hand, is an act where someone else’s work is copied. Failing to observe the standard academic practice of acknowledging the work of others will lead to consequences of malpractice.
