At AUIS most of the student were studying APP program before entering to Undergraduate program, so the teacher from app were toughed same style and format of writing an essay or research paper to all the students so that when we are trying to write an essay all of us sometimes have same idea and same structure. Also, writing essay in APP program is quietly different from writing it in UG program however when we came to UG there is no enough explanation about academic integrity and how to write a perfect essay and research report without plagiarisms that is why most of the students in the first semester will got integrity offence because they don’t have enough information and we learned the same structure of writing essay. Even though having academic integrity policy at AUIS just like any other university is something beneficial for us because it makes us to think and to depend on our believe it leads us to be creative for ourselves and for society. However, our society has writer and doing their work perfectly, but still needs someone who is professional, creative and talented to make literature and science be more developed, and make our society just like any other so that AUIS is opening the way for as to be creative by punishing us while we are trying to copying and borrowing other’s idea.
Last semester, my friend toke one of the require courses at AUIS, and the instructor gave them an assignment to write about an argumentative essay about different topics. My friend had chosen single sex education as her topic even though she had searched a lot and wrote down many different ideas, and she collected other people believes about their reaction about separating sex while school. When she started to write her essay, she forgot to cited one of the sources that she used for an evidence, so she resubmitted her essay twice so that many negative consequences faced her. For example, she received a zero on her assignment, she failed the course, and she got integrity offence and recorded on her transcript. From that day that she got integrity she is very afraid to write essay because the integrity policy at AUIS state that if a student got three integrity she or he will be dismissed from the university.
However, we are as a student using the same program which is Turn it to check our essay about having plagiarism, copying other people’s idea, and keeping the author’s right sometime we are cited properly but we will see very high percent of similarity because many technological problems accrue in the program and we immediately receive integrity offence by our instructor without listening to us and explain the situation to them they should search if we are guilty by copying other thought or the problem is in the program.
