Assessment Feedback: Deliberate breaches of academic honesty constitute academic misconduct. These breaches include:

 Plagiarism
 Fabrication of data
 Recycling previously submitted material
 Engaging someone else to complete an assessment on one’s behalf
 Misconduct during supervised assessments

The penalties for academic misconduct may include:

 A mark of zero on the assessment

Issues concerning breaches of academic honesty may be dealt with either through the process of determining academic results in a unit of study, or, in the most serious cases, by invocation of misconduct procedures.
