Academic honesty and integrity are fundamental to CDISC's education mission. As stated in COP-005, CDISC has a responsibility to promote academic integrity in all authorized trainings. Students are responsible for the honest completion and representation of their work. Any academic misconduct will constitute dismissal of the attendee from the learning event without refund of fees and with annulment of any awarded CEUs. Academic misconduct is an act in which a student:

  • Seeks to claim credit for the work or efforts of another without authorization or citation;
  • Forges or falsifies academic documents or records;
  • Engages in conduct aimed at making false representation of a student's academic performance; or
  • Assists other students in any of these acts.
  • Examples of academic misconduct include, but are not limited to:
    • cheating on an examination;
    • collaborating with others in work to be presented, contrary to the stated rules of the course;
    • submitting an assignment as one's own work when a part or all of the paper or assignment is the work of another;
    • submitting an assignment that contains ideas or research of others without appropriately identifying the sources of those ideas;
    • stealing examinations or course materials;
    • submitting, if contrary to the rules of a course, work previously presented in another course;
    • knowingly and intentionally assisting another student in any of the above.
