Plagiarism, cheating and attempting to obtain an unfair academic advantage are forms of academic misconduct and are entirely unacceptable for any student registered in a CAMRT Continuing Professional Development course.
Plagiarism is the use or close imitation of the language and thoughts of another author and the representation of them as one’s own original work.
Cheating is an attempt to gain an inappropriate advantage in an academic evaluation. Examples of cheating are:
- Obtaining a copy of an examination/assignment before it is officially available.
- Copying another person’s answers to an examination question during the examination or to an assignment question.
- Consulting an unauthorized source during an examination.
- Bringing an unauthorized source specific to the subject into an evaluation.
