Please refer to the learning guide 2020 and the official CUT Calendar for information regarding the CUT Rules on academic dishonesty and plagiarism. Students should take the responsibility to ensure that they understand what is meant by plagiarism (in all its various forms) as well as academic dishonesty. Should a student be suspected of committing plagiarism and be summoned for a disciplinary hearing, stating that he/she was unaware/ignorant of what plagiarism entails, is neither an acceptable excuse nor an adequate defence.
You will be required to upload your assignment onto eThuto via the SafeAssign tool. This is a Blackboard/eThuto-based program that finds parts of an assignment that match other student papers, websites, and various published sources. SafeAssign provides students and instructors/lecturers with a report indicating areas where possible plagiarised matches were found and allocates a percentage to the match.
SafeAssign is not a fool-proof program. Thus, if SafeAssign did not indicate plagiarism in a submission it does not mean that there is no plagiarism in the submission and simply because SafeAssign did indicate a high percentage of possible plagiarism, it does not necessarily mean that plagiarism is present in a piece of writing. SafeAssign is a computer programme and access to it is provided to students as a courtesy. It is useful for alerting instructors to possible plagiarism. SafeAssign however must be used in combination with human professional judgment substantiated with supporting evidence to come to proper, thorough conclusions regarding the presence/absence of plagiarism.
