HSC: All My Own Work

HSC: All My Own Work Working With Others HSC: All My Own Work Working with others is a fact of life Learning is an active process and

we do often share it with others How can you work with others and maintain academic integrity in your own work? HSC: All My Own Work This module involves: Collaborative learning

Collusion Copying HSC: All My Own Work

Collaborative learning Is where you work together in groups of two or more on a shared goal. It can be face-to-face or online through discussion boards, chat lines, Blogs and wikis etc HSC: All My Own Work Scenario In Maths, the teacher suggests that

students work together on a number of trigonometry problems in groups. What is the best way to work together so that each member can benefit and how is this collaborative learning? HSC: All My Own Work

Collaborative or cooperative learning is where ideas are shared and tested with each other with the intention of extending everyones thinking on the topic. HSC: All My Own Work It is of little value if each student worked on an individual problem and then copied the other answers with no explanation.

It would be better if they worked together on each problem with members explaining their thinking as they go to the other group members. HSC: All My Own Work Scenario Your group is instructed to brainstorm before moving to individual research on a PDHPE assignment. One student simply copies all the ideas of the

other students and submits this work as her own, without additional work or attribution. Is this cheating? HSC: All My Own Work Yes Copying is cheating You cheat if you submit other work as

your own without attribution. When working together, the protocols of citing, referencing and acknowledgement still apply. HSC: All My Own Work Scenario You best friend has not completed her History assignment and asks to see yours. You lend it to her and remind her to change the words to

make it look like her own. Is this collusion? HSC: All My Own Work Yes it is collusion Collusion occurs when two or more people work together to produce work, which is presented as

individual work, usually secretly, for the purpose of deliberately misleading others. HSC: All My Own Work Scenario A science assignment is given to your Year 11 class. The assignment is to be handed in as a single assignment. One member of your group of four offers to write a particular section, the others split the

remaining work. HSC: All My Own Work One week before the task is due you find that her section is a copy and paste from the internet. You pick up on the plagiarism and confront her, asking her to redo the section. She says she is too busy and offers to take complete blame. What should you do?

HSC: All My Own Work Should you confer with the other members of the team? HSC: All My Own Work Yes! The whole group has a responsibility to ensure that the work they submit is original and that sources are acknowledged.

If your friend insists that she will not redo the work, then she is putting the groups presented work at risk. According to this schools assessment policy this could result in zero marks for the whole group. HSC: All My Own Work Should you talk to the teacher? HSC: All My Own Work

Yes! You should talk to the teacher. If you dont, you could be found to have colluded with your friend in the plagiarism. By knowing what she intended to do, you could be seen as part of the deceit. You know what is happening is wrong and is compromising the overall work of the group. HSC: All My Own Work

Scenario Linda has access to a tutor who regularly rewrites whole paragraphs of Lindas assignment, or tells Linda what to write. Collaborative learning or copying collusion? or HSC: All My Own Work

Collusion Linda accepts this support in the full knowledge that the assistance of the tutor is not her own work. This is a form of cheating. HSC: All My Own Work Scenario Jennifer logs on to a blog and finds some

information that is relevant to her current assessment task. She exchanges information and tests some of her ideas out through an online discussion board. Collaborative learning or copying or collusion? HSC: All My Own Work Collaborative learning

Scenario Lina is reading and contributing to the blog. Her responses extend the thinking of others and have the potential to contribute to others learning. It is a collaborative activity. Lina should cite the blog if she uses information sourced through it in any work she submits. HSC: All My Own Work

Scenario In Hien's class there is a small group discussion on a particular issue. The discussion is to assist students in the preparation of their reports. Hien takes detailed notes of others contributions. She copies all Chings notes as Ching knows the topic really well. Hien uses the notes word for word in her report and submits it without any citation. Collaborative learning or copying or collusion?

HSC: All My Own Work Copying This is an example of copying as Hien has used Chings ideas in her piece of work without acknowledging Ching as the source. Collaborative or cooperative learning is

where ideas are shared and tested with each other with the intention of extending everyones thinking on the topic. HSC: All My Own Work What help is acceptible? Family and friends they may like to talk about what you are doing

External tutors they may talk and model problems Coaching colleges unpack issues for you, talk about and advise HSC: All My Own Work

All of these can be of help but do not allow them to write your answers for you or you are acting inappropriately and could put your HSC at risk. HSC: All My Own Work What help is not acceptible?

Ghost writers somebody does it for you, (or borrowing someone elses essay) Assignments online buying or commissioning Dont risk it. !!! HSC: All My Own Work

The NSW Board of Studies see this as a serious breach of trust and highly unethical, putting your HSC at risk. Remember what we want is all your own work! HSC: All My Own Work Scenario

Your sister did the same course as you are doing now two years ago and offers to help you with your essay. In fact, she did a similar assessment task and finds it for you. You decide to copy parts of her essay for your own assessment task. Appropriate or inappropriate? HSC: All My Own Work Inappropriate

This is collusion. You have accepted your sisters support intending to use her work and present it as your own original work. This is cheating. HSC: All My Own Work Scenario You have spent a lot of time working on a digital media assignment for Visual Arts and have run out of time. Your friend has

had to do a similar project for Drama and you decide to use her work and submit it as your own assignment. Her teacher is better than yours and has given her more help. No-one will ever know. Appropriate or inappropriate? HSC: All My Own Work Inappropriate This is cheating. You are presenting your friends work as your own with

the intention of misleading your teacher HSC: All My Own Work Scenario Your mother is a professional plumber and is skilled at welding. In your Visual Arts Body of Work, you are making a sculpture that requires welding. Your mother demonstrates welding and supervises your welding. You

record this in your VA Process Diary. Appropriate or inappropriate? HSC: All My Own Work Appropriate You have recorded the help given in your Visual Arts Process Diary. HSC: All My Own Work This is about respect. This is concerned with respect for the

ideas of others and not claiming others ideas as your own. There is no problem referring to the ideas of others just acknowledge appropriately. You need to be clear about referencing and in how you cite your sources, whether written or not. HSC: All My Own Work Remember Birrong Girls uses the Harvard method of referencing.
