Malpractice Policy

At eLearn by Zorarte, we uphold academic integrity and ethical standards to ensure a fair and transparent learning environment for all students. Our Malpractice Policy outlines our stance against academic malpractice and the actions we take to address such incidents.

Definition of Malpractice:
Academic malpractice refers to any dishonest or unethical behavior that undermines the integrity of assessments, coursework, or learning activities. This includes but is not limited to plagiarism, cheating, collusion, falsification of data, and unauthorized use of materials or resources.

Actions Considered as Malpractice:

  1. Plagiarism: Presenting someone else’s work, ideas, or words as one’s own without proper attribution.
  2. Cheating: Attempting to gain an unfair advantage in assessments, exams, or coursework through dishonest means.
  3. Collusion: Unauthorized collaboration with others to produce work that is not one’s own or to gain an unfair advantage.
  4. Falsification: Providing false or misleading information, data, or evidence in coursework or assessments.
  5. Unauthorized Materials: Using unauthorized materials, resources, or aids during assessments or exams.

Detection and Reporting:

  1. Detection Methods: We employ various methods and tools to detect instances of academic malpractice, including plagiarism detection software, proctored exams, and assessment design strategies.
  2. Reporting: Suspected cases of academic malpractice may be reported by instructors, proctors, or students. Reports should be submitted to the Academic Integrity Committee at reporting@zorarte.com.

Investigation and Sanctions:

  1. Investigation Process: Upon receiving a report of suspected malpractice, the Academic Integrity Committee will conduct a thorough investigation to gather evidence and determine the validity of the allegations.
  2. Sanctions: If malpractice is confirmed, sanctions may be imposed based on the severity of the offense. Sanctions may include but are not limited to:
  • Academic warning or reprimand.
  • Reduction of grades or marks for the affected assessment.
  • Temporary or permanent suspension from the course or program.
  • Other disciplinary actions as deemed appropriate.

Appeals Process:
Students have the right to appeal decisions related to academic malpractice sanctions as outlined in the Appeals Policy.

Education and Prevention:
We provide education, training, and resources to educate students about academic integrity, ethical conduct, and the consequences of malpractice. Prevention measures include clear guidelines, instructions, and expectations regarding assessments and coursework.
