All students are expected to adhere to a strict code of academic honesty. You are expected and encouraged to work with others in the class in order to understand the material presented and the assigned problems. However, you are expected to complete the assignments on your OWN unless you are doing group projects.
Copying someone else's work is against school policy. Assignments that are substantially the same as someone else's will result in reduction in grade. This reduction can range from lowering the grade to a zero for the assignment.
Acts of Academic Dishonesty
- Plagiarism, representing the work of another as one's own work;
- Preparing work for another that is to be used as that person's own work;
- Cheating by any method or means;
- Knowingly and willfully falsifying or manufacturing scientific or educational data and representing the same to be the result of scientific or scholarly experiment or research;
- Knowingly furnishing false information to a university official relative to academic matters;
- Soliciting, aiding, abetting, concealing, or attempting conduct in violation of this code.
To achieve success, students are expected to submit work in each course weekly. Students can learn at their own pace; however, "any pace" still means that students must make progress in the course every week. To measure learning, students complete self-checks, practice lessons, multiple choice questions, projects, discussion-based assessments, and discussions. Students are expected to maintain regular contact with teachers; the minimum requirement is monthly. When teachers, students, and parents work together, students are successful.
