1.2 Rights and responsibilities of students in ensuring the intellectual integrity of their work

As a student you have a right to expect:

  • respect from your peers and your teachers
  • clear information about what is required in your assessment tasks and assignments
  • guidance about how to improve your work.

As a student you have a responsibility to:

  • understand what is required of you
  • fulfil the school's requirements for your study
  • be fair and honest in all aspects of your work
  • respect the rights and integrity of your peers and teachers
  • make sure your work is your own.

What can students expect in terms of guidance for the HSC and assessment?

There are a lot of things that NESA and schools put in place to ensure that students can access the information they need.

  • Read the Rules and Procedures for the HSC
  • The school has an assessment policy that explains the school's requirements and what students should do if, for example, they are absent for a task.
  • Each school will give students information about each task and when it is due.
  • For help with research tasks, teachers and the teacher-librarian assist students with accessing. and using information as well as correctly acknowledging sources.

As a student, your most important responsibility is to make sure that everything you do for the HSC is all your own work.

These documents will be important for every HSC student:

  • HSC Confirmation of Entry
  • Student declaration
