Academic Integrity | For teachers: VCE and VCAL

For VCE and VCAL students the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA) has the following rules and guidelines that relate to academic integrity and school bases assessment. For details refer to page 85 'School-based Assessment' in the VCE and VCAL Administrative Handbook

Rules for authentication of School-based Assessment

"Students must observe and apply rules for the authentication of School-based Assessment. Students must sign an authentication record for work done outside class when they submit the completed task. The VCAA authentication rules state that:

  • a student must ensure that all unacknowledged work submitted for assessment is their own
  • a student must acknowledge all resources used, including
    • texts, websites and other source material
    • the name and status of any person who provided assistance and the type of assistance provided
  • a student must not receive undue assistance from another person in the preparation and submission of work
  • acceptable levels of assistance include
    • the incorporation of ideas or material derived from other sources (for example, by reading, viewing or note taking), but which have been transformed by the student and used in a new context
    • prompting and general advice from another person or source, which leads to refinements and/or self-correction
  • unacceptable forms of assistance include
    • use of, or copying, another person’s work or other resources without acknowledgement
    • corrections or improvements made or dictated by another person
  • a student must not submit the same piece of work for assessment in more than one study, or more than once within a study
  • a student must not circulate or publish written work that is being submitted for assessment in a study in the academic year of enrolment
  • a student must not knowingly assist another student in a breach of rules
  • in considering if a student’s work is their own, teachers should consider if the work
    • is atypical of other work produced by the student
    • is inconsistent with the teacher’s knowledge of the student’s ability
    • contains unacknowledged material
    • has not been sighted and monitored by the teacher during its development."
