5. SIMILARITY THRESHOLD, VIOLATIONS & PENALTIES AND RECORDS
The faculty teaching the course will review the student work submitted together with the
originality report to determine if the work complies with the maximum similarity percentage
for categories of academic work as shown below:
Student Academic Work Item Similarity Threshold
Continuous Assessment (coursework, assignments,
mini-projects, case studies, presentations, etc)
Major Assessments such as thesis, graduation project and
internship report, final project or course work used as
replacement of final exams
Violations & Penalties:
A) Where sources (similar text) are properly referenced:
1 If the similarity level for any submitted work is equal to or less than the acceptable
percentage of similarity shown in the table in E2 above, the mark will be recorded as assigned.
2 If the similarity level for any submitted work is over the acceptable percentage of similarity
shown in the table in E2 above by 5% or more (ie 25% or more for continuous assessment or 20% or
more for major assessments) the work will be rejected with no possibility of revision or second
submission and the grade assigned and recorded for the item will be zero (0).
3 If the similarity level for any submitted work is more than the acceptable percentage of
similarity shown in the table in E2 above by less than 5% (ie in the range 21%-25% for course work
and 16%-20% for major assessments) a penalty will be imposed as follows:
• First Offense (less than 5% over threshold): the grade assigned and recorded for the item
will be reduced by 25%.
• First Offense (more than 5% over threshold): the grade assigned and recorded for the item
will be zero (0).
• Repeat Offense(s) (over threshold by any amount): the grade assigned and recorded for the
item will be zero (0).
B) Where sources (similar text) are NOT properly referenced:
4 If the manual check by the faculty member confirms the presence of work, sources or similar
text which are not properly referenced, this will be considered as plagiarism, deemed to be an
academic offence and will be recorded in the student’s file. In addition, the following penalties will
• Plagiarized work equal to or less than percentages in the table in E2 above will be penalized
by a mark of zero (0) for the item.
• Plagiarized work exceeding by any amount the percentages in the table in E2 above will be
penalized by an F grade in the course.
• Repeat offense(s) of plagiarized (unreferenced) work of any amount in the same course will
be penalized by an F grade in the course.
• Repeat offense(s) of plagiarized (unreferenced) work of any amount in a subsequent
semester will be penalized by an F grade in all courses registered in the semester.
5 Assignments mentioned in D4 above where Turnitin/SafeAssign is not suitable for use to
check for similarity (such as an assignment requiring programming code) have the same acceptable
similarity threshold levels as those in the table in E2 above and violations of the threshold will be
penalized following the same approach set out in F1 to F4 above.
6 Repeat offenses of excess similarity and all cases of plagiarism will also be referred to the
Academic Malpractice Mitigation & Appeals Panel, which may apply further sanctions if deemed
