A letter to students from Disciplinary Committee

february, 2024

Dear Students,

The final exam period of spring semester of the 2023 academic year will be held both in a frontal  format and online via Tomex system.

For your reference ,Bar-Ilan University disciplinary policy for students as well as disciplinary committee decisions of the past year are posted on the Academic Secretariat website under Ethics and Discipline.

We would like to emphasize sections of the academic policy documents regarding exams and submission of papers:

1.       Exam integrity

a)   Regular classroom-based exams - Exam integrity is to be strictly maintained at all times. This includes following all exam instructions as specified by instructors and exam proctors. No supplementary material may be taken with you into the exam beyond what is permitted explicitly by the course instructor.  It is forbidden to have a mobile phone (even if turned off) or any other smart electronic device (such as a smartwatch) with you or within your reach. Restroom breaks during exams will be permitted as per guidelines and accompanied by a proctor.

b)  Tomax Exams (recording video and audio throughout the exam) at the start of an online exam you are to sign a declaration of integrity during videotaped online exams. Use of unauthorized material or access to external websites that have not been permitted explicitly is strictly forbidden. It is also forbidden to cooperate with any party, or to communicate with other students, even for the purpose of any assistance (such as technical). No supplementary material may be use in the exam beyond what is permitted explicitly by the course instructor. It is forbidden to use eardots of any kind. It is forbidden to a use any smart electronic device, such as a smartwatch. Exams Policies are being updated from time to time. Remember to read carefully the information regarding Tomax exams.


2.     Work submission – Any academic work submitted as part of university studies must be submitted via the Moodle platform (or any other secure platform as requested by the instructor). You are required to sign the declaration of originality accompanying every assignment submitted. Be sure to submit original work that you alone have prepared. You may not submit work that has been copied, even partially, from another source, including from the internet. You may not submit work that has been purchased or written for you by a third party. You may not sell academic work.


3.     Respectful behavior – Show respect for every person, be they students, employees or instructors. Any form of physical or verbal violence toward another student or a university employee, whether faculty, administrative staff or service providers, will be addressed by the Disciplinary Committee.

Please note – The disciplinary authorities are inclined toward severe punishments even suspension from studies, in cases that such claims are found to be justified.


We wish you the best of luck on your final exams and assignments


Academic Secretariat and the Chairman of Disciplinary Committee
