The Anchorage School Board recently passed a policy that will help protect students from passing off artificial intelligence (AI) work as their own. This new policy is designed to ensure that all student work is original and not plagiarized or copied from AI-generated sources.
This decision was made in response to the growing prevalence of AI technology, which has been used increasingly by students for academic assignments. While AI can be a useful tool for completing certain tasks, it can also be misused if students are not careful about how they use it. The school board wanted to make sure that all student work was authentic and free of any potential plagiarism issues associated with using AI-generated material.
Under this new policy, teachers will have the ability to detect when an assignment has been generated by an AI program rather than written by the student themselves. If a teacher suspects that a student’s work may have been created using an AI program, they will contact the student directly and ask them to explain where they got their information from and how they completed their assignment.
In addition to helping prevent cheating on assignments, this new policy also encourages students to think critically about how they approach their studies and develop creative solutions for problems instead of relying solely on automated programs like those found in many online learning platforms today. By encouraging critical thinking skills among its students, the Anchorage School Board hopes that these same skills will carry over into other areas of life such as problem solving at home or in the workplace later down the line.
The Anchorage School Board believes strongly in providing quality education opportunities for its students while also ensuring academic integrity remains intact throughout each school year. With this new policy now in place, teachers can rest assured knowing that all assignments submitted are genuine works produced entirely by their respective authors – no matter what type of technology may have been used along the way!
