Academic dishonesty in all its forms, in course work, on examinations, or in other academically related activities, includes but is not limited to the following:
- Copying from another student or knowingly allowing another to copy.
- Using unauthorized materials and/or technologies.
- Plagiarizing work, which means the use of any other person’s work without proper citation.
When a student has been found to break the academic honesty policy, the following will occur:
- The student will receive a zero for the assignment/test/paper, etc.
- The teacher will call the parents.
- The teacher will write a referral to school administration for appropriate disciplinary action.
- An example of plagiarism is when you copy a paper/web page or sections of a paper/web page from the Internet, put your name on it and turn it in as if you wrote it.
- An example of plagiarism is when you buy a term paper or essay written by someone else and attempt to use it as your own.
- Directly quoting another person’s actual words, whether oral or written.
- An example of plagiarism is paraphrasing materials without correctly attributing the source or research text.
