If you are deciding on whether and how to use Gen AI tools, you may find the quick checklist below helpful:

  • I have checked the assessment brief or have spoken to my tutor and can confirm that use of Gen AI is not prohibited for my assessment type.
  • I have reviewed the Academic Integrity principles to help me avoid unintentional plagiarism.
  • I have understood the risks and limitations of using Gen AI, including a recognition of issues of bias, sensitivity, accuracy, appropriate content and ethical issues.
  • I have checked and critically reviewed any quotations, citations or outputs that the Gen AI tool has generated.
  • I have not submitted any Personally Identifiable Information (PII) to a Gen AI tool.
  • I have ensured that no part of my assessment copies or paraphrases Gen AI outputs without acknowledgement.
  • I have ensured that my assignment / research remains my own work.
  • I have appropriately referenced the use of Gen AI tools in my work.
