Students of high school, foreign language, academic integrity, quality of education, plagiarism, professional ethics


Increasing the level of foreign language in students of high school and its importance in the educational process are motivated by the importance for the practical implementation of academic integrity in the educational and scientific environment. It is argued that effective study of foreign languages by future specialists, who receive education in various non-philological specialties, becomes especially relevant, as in processing of practically-oriented works of foreign scientists for writing research, teaching and creative works purposefully or with no understanding that copyright are infringemented, give out other people's ideas, thought as their own and thus violate academic integrity, reduce educational process’ quality. Therefore, the state of development of the problem in pedagogical theory and practice has been clarified; an empirical study was conducted to examine the interdependence between students' English proficiency levels and the academic integrity use; the teachers’ competence in teaching pedagogical skills related to modern academic writing, academic plagiarism prevention, the basic normative provisions of academic integrity understanding have been improved. A study was conducted with the participation of 58 third-year students of the specialty “Social Work” and “Psychology” and 18 teachers of the Departments of Psychology and Social Work and Foreign Languages and Information and Communication Technologies of Ternopil National Economic University. It is concluded that in order to eradicate academic plagiarism in high school, it is advisable for teachers who study professionally oriented disciplines and business professional foreign language with students to introduce rules and norms of academic integrity into the educational process of future professionals.
