It is important to provide students with clear directions on how to cite any permitted use of AI in assessments. Below are examples you can provide to your students on assessment descriptions. Adjust the language to meet your specific goals.
Overall Advisement to Students
You are expected to identify all content produced by generative AI, even when AI content has been combined with your own ideas or thoughts or has been utilized in the outline or brainstorming process. Add a note (in the introduction or after the references, or as an in-text citation).
Introduction to the Assignment
- “This assignment was proofread by Grammarly.”
- “ChatGPT was used to assist with my initial brainstorming.”
- “GitHub [insert relevant generative AI used here] assisted in (e.g., brainstorming, planning, testing, outlining, proofreading) for this assignment.”
To cite summaries, paraphrases, and the direct integration of AI-generated outputs (including words, images, and code) into the assessment, use the following guidelines from APA 7:
Reference: Author. (Year). AI name (Date of access) [Type of AI]. URL.
GitHub, Inc. (2023). GitHub (Apr 17 version) [Software development platform]. https://github.com.
OpenAI. (2023). ChatGPT (Mar 14 version) [Large language model]. https://chat.openai.com/
OpenAI. (2023). Dall-E 2 (Apr 17 version) [Transformer language model]. https://openai.com/product/dall-e-2
In-text citation: (OpenAI, 2023) Narrative citation: OpenAI (2023)
