The inclusion of material copied verbatim from other sources within your answers is only acceptable if in each instance you include a reference to the source of the copied material. However, a quote alone will not be a sufficient answer. Assessment takers must explain why they chose to quote other sources and explain how they feel it helps answer the question. employs techniques to detect the use of Copyrighted and copied material, to detect when answers match the answers given by other assessment takers, to detect the use of artificial intelligence, and to detect the re-use of the same or similar language across multiple questions throughout the same assessment. The detection of any of these occurrences may result in a loss of points, a failing score, or the revoking of your certifications and the subsequent deletion of your member profile.
