Academic Honesty

A big part of being an independent learner and a successful student in the MYP is RESEARCH.  This means finding information for yourself, and using it in a way that is appropriate and honest.

You need to develop three basic skills this year:


By the end of this year, you should be able to…

  • Find texts in the school library using the search catalogue
  • Use search engines to find good sources on the internet
  • Tell the difference between good sources and bad sources of information


   By the end of this year, you should be able to…

  • Select small sections from a useful source and include them in your work
  • Convert text sources into original diagrams and vice-versa
  • Relate information from a source to others in audience-friendly language


   By the end of this year, you should be able to…

  • Complete a basic BIBLIOGRAPHY (MLA Style) or source list for each assessed task
  • Use quotation marks around sections of copied text
  • Put title and sources on all copied diagrams, images and charts

When we find information from another source, such as a book or a website, we are really only ‘borrowing’ it for the purpose of our assignment.  Someone else worked to produce that work, so we should respect that work by CITING it at the end of our piece of work.

How to Create a Bibliography

At the end of each piece of research-based work we complete, we must include an extra section called the BIBLIOGRAPHY.  Here we can cite (write down) all the sources of information we used to complete our task using the following format. 


Author’s Last name, First name. Title of the book. Place of publication: Publisher, Copyright.


“On-line title of article”. Author’s name. http://address/filename : date of document or download date.


Author’s last name, First name, “Title of article.” Name of encyclopedia. Volume, Page(s). Place of Publication: Publisher, Copyright.
