Support for Academic Integrity

The Library has created the following tutorials to support RDP students:

Academic Integrity Fundamentals Tutorial

The Academic Integrity Fundamentals Tutorial is designed to foster an understanding of Academic Integrity at RDP. The tutorial is fully aligned with RDP’s new Student Rights and Responsibilities Policy and Academic Misconduct Procedure. 

Key Features of the Academic Integrity Tutorial: 

  • Comprehensive Content: The tutorial covers a wide range of topics, including plagiarism, inappropriate collaboration, exam and contract cheating, and misrepresentation. 
  • Real-Life Scenarios: The tutorial includes real-life scenarios that challenge students to apply their knowledge in practical situations. 
  • Self-Assessment: Students will have the opportunity to assess their understanding of academic integrity principles through quizzes and assessments integrated throughout the tutorial. 
  • Accessibility: The tutorial is accessible online, allowing students to complete it at their own pace. 
  • Certificate of Completion: The tutorial includes a Final Quiz. If 80% or higher is achieved, a PDF “Certificate of Completion” will be generated. This certificate will include the student’s name, grade on the quiz, and date of completion. The tutorial may be assigned in courses, and students may submit their “Certificate of Completion” in Blackboard as proof of completion. 

Instructors are invited to integrate the tutorial into their courses or recommend it as a supplementary resource: https://guides.rdpolytech.ca/academicintegrityfundamentals 

Please contact your Subject Librarian if you have any questions about the tutorial.

Academic Integrity Remedial Tutorial

The Academic Integrity Remedial Tutorial is designed for students who have already committed their first offense of academic misconduct.

The link to access the Academic Integrity tutorial is: https://rdc-ab.libwizard.com/f/academicintegrity

The tutorial will take approximately 60 minutes to complete. We recommend completing the tutorial on a desktop computer, laptop, or tablet; this tutorial will be difficult to complete on a smartphone.

Once the tutorial is completed, you may print or download a Certificate of Completion. The certificate will include your name and email, your grade, and a copy of your short-answer responses. You must achieve 100% on the tutorial before the certificate will appear.

After completing the tutorial, you must schedule a meeting with Amy Becker, the Academic Integrity Coordinator: Make an Appointment with Amy

At this meeting, please bring:

  1. Your Certificate of Completion, including a copy of your short-answer responses
  2. Your assignment for discussion with Amy
