    • Value of the work in question (i.e., percentage of the final course grade).
    • Assignment due date and date submitted;
    • Instructor’s contact information (phone and U of T e-mail), as well as those of other involved parties (e.g., course TAs, exam invigilators, etc.);
  • Student’s other course marks to date, including the course marking scheme;
  • Description of the alleged academic offence, including the date and a summary of the student meeting. If there is any other information of which OSAI should be aware, please include it in the report.
  • The original piece of work or document in question. If the student requests it, he or she may be given a copy of that material;
  • Other course-relevant information such as:
    • the course syllabus;
    • the assignment topic sheet and guidelines;
    • handouts or slides about plagiarism that were given or shown to students;
    • samples of the student’s other work;
    • any communication to or from the student regarding the allegation.
  • Documentation: whatever documentation and evidence you collected which supports your allegation that an offence has occurred.
