Academic Integrity Syllabus Statements

Below is a standard description of UPEI's expectations of academic integrity that can be added to a course syllabus. 

As a community of scholars, the University of Prince Edward Island is committed to the principle of academic integrity among all its participants. Academic dishonesty as defined in this Regulation will not be tolerated and, within the constraints of this Regulation and Academic Regulation 12, the University supports instructors in their efforts to deal effectively with cases as they may arise from time to time. For more information, please reference UPEI Academic Regulation 20.


Academic Integrity Tutorial and Badge Restriction

Students have the opportunity to complete the UPEI Academic Integrity tutorial within Moodle. When a student completes the tutorial with a 100% score, the student's Moodle account will display the Academic Integrity Badge for that academic year (September- August). Students will only have to complete the tutorial once a year to earn the badge and it can be applied to multiple courses.

Faculty members can verify which students have earned the badge by using Moodle’s restrict access setting for course materials or activities (How to add the UPEI Academic Integrity Badge Restriction to a Moodle Assessment). They can also check that a student has earned the badge by viewing their full profile.
