How do you get your students to declare their own work according to your Academic Integrity & Plagiarism Policy?

I'm interested in learning how other institutions deal with academic integrity and online submissions for assignments.  

 

Do you have anywhere on the assignment page that says something similar to the following?:

 

"In accordance with the Academic Integrity & Plagiarism Policy:

 

I declare that:

 (1) this assignment is entirely my own work, except where I have included fully-documented references to the work of others;

 

(2) the material contained in this assignment has not previously been submitted for any other subject at the University or any other educational institution, except as otherwise permitted."

 

Do you use a pop-up as a confirmation?

 

Do you get students to add a page to written assignments which says as much?

 

Or do you simply write it in the assignment brief and remind students?

 

Looking forward to seeing your solutions.
