Did you get accused of AI cheating?

  • What to do if you're accused of AI cheating 

  • If you’re accused of using AI and did not use it, we emphasize and encourage that you have a polite conversation with your professor before anything else. It can be frustrating to be falsely accused of doing something, but there are steps to remedy the situation. 

  • “Part of education is learning to advocate for yourself" (Fowler). It’s important to take a step back and remind yourself that AI is new to everyone – including professors. Nonetheless, there are tools to help you advocate for yourself both as a writer and as a student. Having a polite conversation is a great place to start in terms of self-advocacy. 

  • Research suggests that AI detectors may be unfair against non-native English speakers/writers and that AI detectors are evidently imperfect in other ways. AI detectors might indicate that something was written by AI when really it is a more technical topic that may be challenging to write about. After all, how many ways are there to explain the scientific method? 

  • Utilize the ‘version history’ of your writing software. Google Docs and Microsoft Word provide version histories of your document that keep track of changes. You can easily show this to your professor to prove that you did not use AI in your paper, therefore acting as a form of ‘physical’ evidence. 

  • If you’re accused of using AI when you did not, start with a polite conversation with your professor. From there, you hopefully now have a better idea of how you can proceed in proving you did not use AI. We hope this helps!
