Plagiarism is the inclusion in your assignment of material copied or closely paraphrased from someone else’s writings (including textbooks and assignments by other students) without an explicit indication of the source of the material. It is considered to be cheating. Although the School encourages discussion amongst students, students who collaborate should be careful not to plagiarise. Penalties for plagiarism NMIT takes a serious view of plagiarism. Even when you are not intending to cheat, it is clear that submitting someone else’s work or ideas is not evidence of your own understanding of the material and cannot earn you marks. Penalties for plagiarism can extend from a zero grade for the assignment plagiarised to imposing an overall coursework grade of zero in the course concerned. GBE804 BUSINESS ENTERPRISE OPERATIONS: MARKETING – ASSESSMENT OUTLINE – 2014 6 How to avoid plagiarism The work and ideas of other people must be acknowledged in your Bibliography in APA style. Information on this can be found in Emerson, L. (Ed.). (2006). Writing guidelines for business students. (3rd ed.). Southbank, Vic: Thomson Dunmore Press. 5.

B) An assignment handed in after the due date, where an extension of time has not been granted by the Course Co-ordinator, will incur a penalty of 20% of your total marks for that assignment for EACH DAY that the office of the School of Applied Business is open, after the due date.
