Summary
There appears to be a reasonably common understanding about plagiarism and collusion in assessment items written in prose text. However, there are many disciplines of study that use assessment items not based in prose. In computing there are computer programs, databases, spreadsheets, and more; in the visual arts there are images and other designs; in music, compositions; in mathematics, proofs; in architecture, designs. It is far from clear that the same sort of consensus about plagiarism and collusion applies across these disciplines; and indeed it is not clear that academics in these disciplines have the same core beliefs about originality of authorship as apply in the world of prose. This project will use nationwide surveys and focus groups to investigate what academics and students in these disciplines think constitute breaches of academic integrity in non-text-based assessment items, and how they regard such breaches; and how academics discourage such breaches, detect them, and deal with the consequences.
