Students should follow good practice in their assignments and always maintain high standards of academic integrity. This is defined as ‘doing your own work and giving credit to others for their work (Centre for Academic Development, 2023). This applies to whatever is used in the production of assignments, including sources or Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools such as ChatGPT.
From January 2023, if you use any AI tools for your assessment, you need to state your use in a declaration form in Moodle when you submit your work. This is similar to referencing your sources in your bibliography. We are using a form for this so we can better understand how students are using AI in their learning and assessment. In the declaration, you need to specify which tools you have used and how you have used them in your assignment, for example, what you asked the tool to do.
You should also check your module guidance or with your Module Leader to see if AI tools can be used for your assessment(s) as there may be some assessments where AI tools cannot be used. Please also check that you understand the academic conduct breaches at Brookes to ensure you are following good practice. If you breach regulations, this may impact your grades and suitability for professional practice.
More guidance for students on academic integrity will be available shortly via the Centre for Academic Development.
