Statement on Academic Integrity

The University's policy on academic integrity can be found in the Code of Policies and Regulations Applying to All Students under Article One, Part IV. The following policies support and reinforce that policy.

1. Science cannot exist without honesty. We expect all students, as scientists-in-the-making, to hold the highest standards of scientific and academic conduct. Any form of cheating on any graded work in this course is unacceptable, and will be dealt with as outlined below, and in accordance with the University-wide standards in the Code of Policies and Regulations Applying to All Students.

2. We require that all graded work be entirely your own, and that anything you write using the words of other writers be correctly attributed. Some specific points follow:

    On assignments, quizzes, and presentations, the answers that you turn in for grading must be your own understanding of the material. Even working within a group, you must contribute to the group's effort and not just have one person do all of the work. Since we cannot monitor you as you complete your work, we have only the appearance of your work from which to judge. If the work that you submit closely resembles that of another student/team too closely, we may conclude that it was not your original work. Failure to adhere to these standards may result in a grade of zero for the entire assignment, for all persons involved.

    On assignments, if you use another source to obtain the facts and/or opinions necessary to complete your assignment, you must credit the source (see next point below) and rephrase the information so that your assignment is entirely your own words. A good practice is to read the source until you have a thorough understanding of the material, and then put it away. Write your assignment as if you are explaining the information you learned from reading the source to a classmate, member of your family, or to your teaching assistant. You may wish to look at the source again for clarification, but be certain that you do not use statements taken directly from the text in your assignment. Your entire assignment should be in your own words. Furthermore, paraphrasing does NOT mean replacing key words in a statement with synonyms. For an example of proper paraphrasing of a statement, consult the University's Code of Policies and Regulations Applying to All Students.

    Failure to adhere to these standards may result in zero credit for the entire assignment.

    On assignments, if you use the ideas and/or opinions from another author or source, you must provide the appropriate citation. That is, you must, using APA format, place a parenthetical reference to the source that provided you the information necessary to complete that portion of the assignment.

    Failure to adhere to these standards may result in zero credit for the entire assignment.

    On assignments, if you use a statement taken directly from any book or other publication, including the course textbook, you must provide a citation. That is, you must put the text in quotes and, using APA format, place a parenthetical reference to the source at the end of the quote. Direct quotations should be severely limited in your assignment; they should be used ONLY in the following situations:

        A definition of a term
        A profound statement made by an expert in the field

    Furthermore, any direct quotation should then be restated in your own words in order that your instructor may evaluate your understanding of the material.

    Failure to adhere to these standards may result in zero credit for the entire assignment.
