I. Purpose and Philosophy
According to the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO), academic honesty includes a set of values and skills that promote personal integrity. Academic honesty also supports good practice in teaching, learning and assessment (IBO, 2009). In the Anwatin IB Middle Years Programme (MYP), students and our school community strive to develop the attributes of the learner profile.

II. Definitions of Academic Honesty
Cheating or academic dishonesty in the MYP includes:

  • Plagiarism - using the ideas or work of another person as your own, such as copying language from a book or website and not citing where it came from
  • Collusion - helping someone else cheat, such as allowing your own work to be copied by another
  • Misconduct- refusing to follow directions, such as taking test materials from a classroom or using prohibited electronic devices
