The Academic Integrity tutorial and test - Student Guide

What is Academic Integrity?

Already started the tutorial?

An update to the tutorial was made on the 10th October which could impact students part way through the tutorial meaning you may lose sight of ‘badges’ that mark your personal progress. This will not prevent you from accessing the tutorial and completing the test. If you were previously unable to access or progress through the tutorial and test, this is now resolved.

Leeds students are part of an academic community that shares and develops ideas. You need to work with others, interpret and present other people's ideas, and produce your own independent academic work.

It is essential that you can distinguish between other people’s work and your own, and correctly acknowledge other people’s work. This tutorial and test is designed to show you how to avoid plagiarism and instil good practice for your time here at Leeds.

All work you submit for assessment is expected to be your own independent work. Where you have worked with others, or where you present other people’s work as part of your assessment, or work you have previously submitted for assessment at the University or elsewhere, you must fully acknowledge this.

All taught students new to Leeds must complete the tutorial and pass the test.

There are no limits on the number of attempts. You can review the tutorial and try again until you pass.

If you are experiencing issues completing the tutorial please read the guidance below before logging a ticket with IT Services.
