To ensure the integrity of this assessment, you must:
  1. Complete this task entirely in the Cadmus platform. Submissions that have been written using other software (e.g. Microsoft Word) and then pasted/transcribed into Cadmus are identifiable.
  2. Complete this task individually. Collaboration with others is not appropriate in this assessment, and measures are in place to identify this.
  3. Write this task in your own words, referencing relevant ideas as appropriate. All Cadmus submissions are checked for possible plagiarism and contract cheating using Turnitin.
Submissions that do not follow these guidelines will be investigated as a potential breach of the university's Academic Integrity Policy: [insert link to university policy].
These measures assist us to verify the originality and authorship of all submissions and ensure assessment fairness for all students.
