Quizlet's Honor Code


At Quizlet, we believe in students. We believe in their ability to learn with grit and integrity. That’s why our mission is to make students unstoppable by helping them practice and master their material honestly. Combined with your school’s academic integrity policies, this Honor Code sets out Quizlet’s expectations for your study behavior on our platform. When you’re studying with Quizlet, you’re agreeing to uphold this Honor Code.

Start with your instructor. Each school or class has its own academic integrity policies. We recommend that you have a conversation with your instructor so that you can understand your responsibilities regarding posting, sharing and accessing study material online. If you’re unsure about what’s allowed in your class, the best thing you can do is to ask your instructor. Remember that each class may have different rules.

We believe in you. If you’re tempted to use Quizlet in a way that’s inconsistent with your values or your instructor’s expectations, remember that you can succeed with honest study and the right support. Don’t cheat yourself of an opportunity to learn. No matter how hard the material might seem, or how much time you have left to study, you can make study choices that you can be proud of.

Help other students to study honestly. The way you use Quizlet can also impact how other students use our platform. If you’re using old tests to study, this material may still appear on other students’ tests later. If your set contains test content that your instructor has asked you not to post publicly, it should be made private.

The misuse of our platform to cheat is incompatible with our values and is prohibited by this Honor Code. Here are some examples of unacceptable behavior:

  • Violating the academic integrity policies of your school or class
  • Posting the answers to a test and sharing them with other students who haven’t taken the test yet
  • Sharing material on Quizlet with your classmates during a closed-book exam or test
  • Using Quizlet during an exam or test to plagiarize answers
  • Publicly posting material that your instructor has asked you not to

The bottom line: Don’t use Quizlet in a way that you wouldn’t want your instructor to know about.

Quizlet is for honest study on your path to becoming unstoppable, and we ask you — both students and instructors — for your help to keep it that way. If you find active test questions and answers in Quizlet study sets, please submit a report to us and we’ll address the issue promptly.
