Information on academic integrity at Red Deer Polytechnic.


Support for Academic Integrity

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

Academic Integrity Fundamentals Tutorial

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

Key features of the tutorial: 

  • Comprehensive Content: Covers a wide range of topics, including plagiarism, inappropriate collaboration, exam and contract cheating, and misrepresentation. 
  • Real-Life Scenarios: 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: Accessible online, allowing students to complete it at their own pace. 
  • Certificate of Completion: 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:
