Poor Academic Quality is defined as a relatively small amount of paraphrasing or the use of quotations and diagrams, charts, etc. without adequate citation and/or referencing. This would normally be where a student has failed to do at least two of the following: (i) use quotation marks, (ii) cite, (iii) reference around a paragraph or two of material from an unacknowledged source or sources.
