Failure to report during scheduled times will be counted as absences and will result in the lowering of a grade. Late journals or final papers will result in an incomplete. All materials, including letters from the internship supervisor, must be submitted to your professor by the last Wednesday of classes.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Be present and participate with the few required meetings with classmates and professors.
Students are Responsible for Completing the Following Tasks:
1) A description of the agency and its placement in the criminal justice system;
2)Observations and experiences learned by participation in the internship;
3) A discussion of the positive and negative experiences of the internship, and;
4) Conclusions about how the internships fits into student coursework at this point in his/her university experience.
Academic Honesty:Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life. Park University students and faculty members are encouraged to take advantage of the University resources available for learning about academic honesty (www.park.edu/current or http://www.park.edu/faculty/).from Park University 2010-2011 Undergraduate Catalog Page 92(This statement is from the Park University Undergraduate Catalog.) “Academic Honesty is required of all members of a learning community. Hence, Park will not tolerate cheating or plagiarism on tests, examinations, papers or other course assignments. Students who engage in such dishonesty may be given failing grades or expelled from Park.”
All students are expected to be familiar with the University's policies on Academic Honesty and Plagiarism. Evidence of academic dishonesty, including plagiarism, fabrication, or cheating, will be fully investigated and may result in course failure.
Using other's words and ideas without proper quotations and citations is a violation of Park University's Academic Honesty Policy. The instructor takes this seriously and reports all violations to the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and/or the College for Distance Learning. Generally, for the first time, a student receives a grade of zero (F) for the assignment and a warning. A second instance will result in failing the course.
I can't say this any clearer: Students who cut and paste text from an online source into assignments (including online discussions), and do not use quotation marks, in-text, and end citations, are plagiarizing, and violating the Academic Honesty Policy.
All students are advised to review the policy detailed in the Course Syllabus, and on pp. 92-93 of the 2009-2010 academic catalog.
PLEASE REVIEW AND CHECK YOUR ASSIGNMENTS CLOSELY TO BE SURE YOU ARE NOT PLAGIARIZING.
Plagiarism:Plagiarism involves the use of quotations without quotation marks, the use of quotations without indication of the source, the use of another's idea without acknowledging the source, the submission of a paper, laboratory report, project, or class assignment (any portion of such) prepared by another person, or incorrect paraphrasing. from Park University 2010-2011 Undergraduate Catalog Page 92-93(This statement if from the park University Undergraduate Catalog.)
“Plagiarism—the appropriation or imitation of the language or ideas of another person and presenting them as one's original work—sometimes occurs through carelessness or ignorance. Students who are uncertain about proper documentation of sources should consult their instructors.”
Attendance Policy:Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.
Park University 2010-2011 Undergraduate Catalog Page 95-961. Meet with classmates and professors at the beginning and end of the semester to discuss positive and negative aspects of the internship experience at a scheduled time, if requested to do so, probably the first week of classes and at the mid term. If you are not a Parkville daytime student, the professor will provide directions.
2. Keep a journal of your activities during the week and submit this to your professor prior to Monday in order to be counted as present. If you miss deadlines, you will be counted as absent and will be dropped from the course. It is helpful for you and the professor if you analyze as well as describe your activities.
Disability Guidelines:Park University is committed to meeting the needs of all students that meet the criteria for special assistance. These guidelines are designed to supply directions to students concerning the information necessary to accomplish this goal. It is Park University's policy to comply fully with federal and state law, including Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, regarding students with disabilities. In the case of any inconsistency between these guidelines and federal and/or state law, the provisions of the law will apply.
