If you decide that the use of automated content generation tools are not appropriate for your teaching and learning context, and you suspect its use by a student, you may be wondering if you can report and address these violations of integrity at the University of Manitoba. The short answer is “Yes.”
According to the Student Academic Misconduct Procedure, “’Academic Misconduct’ means any conduct that has, or might reasonably be seen to have, an adverse effect on the academic integrity of the University . . . ”
This definition does not limit violations (including those related to the use of artificial intelligence technologies) to the six categories of academic misconducted listed in the document (i.e., plagiarism, cheating on quizzes, texts, and exams, inappropriate collaboration, personation, duplicate submission, academic fraud).
Review of the Student Discipline Bylaw can help you understand how to approach the reporting and adjudication of academic misconduct related to unpermitted use of technologies to complete assessments.
