This research examines the influence of ChatGPT on the development of academic writing skills and knowledge, specifically within the context of argumentative essays. The study was conducted with 30 undergraduate students from a university in Thailand. The researcher investigated the impact of ChatGPT on students' proficiency in crafting argumentative essays, taking into account factors such as essay quality, potential plagiarism, and students' understanding of ethical considerations and proper attribution practices. Data was collected through a Survey Questionnaire, which explored ethical considerations, plagiarism awareness, and attribution practices. In addition, an Essay Evaluation Rubric was used to assess written work based on coherence, originality, clarity of argument, and proper citation practices. The findings provided valuable insights into the impact of ChatGPT on academic writing, highlighting both challenges and benefits. The implications of this study are relevant to educators, students, and researchers, informing responsible utilization of AI tools. Recommendations are provided to help educators effectively integrate ChatGPT into academic writing curricula, with an emphasis on ethical considerations and plagiarism prevention.
