    Academic dishonesty is using a person’s work, concepts, designs, data, ideas, research, or documentation, without giving proper credit to the source. It goes beyond plagiarism to also include lying, cheating, using or providing unauthorized materials in preparation for an exam/test/quiz, or using or providing unauthorized materials during an exam/test/quiz, to include using electronic devices to receive or transmit information during an exam/test/quiz, and other acts, such as the theft or falsification of records and files.

    The student will:

    • set aside sufficient time to study
    • participate actively in class and attend regularly
    • protect work—do not lend or borrow work
    • observe test time limits
    • not look at another’s test or allow his or her test to be seen
    • not talk during a test or about the test until all classes have had a chance to take it
    • not represent as his or her own the work of a parent, brother, sister, or anyone else
    • not change a test item in any way when the test is returned for review
    • not allow one member of a team to do the whole task
    • learn how to attribute work properly by citation, footnote, and bibliography
    • not enter teacher offices and other restricted areas without permission and/or being accompanied by a staff person
