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 2011-2012 Undergraduate Catalog Page 93Because I teach ethics, I have a zero-tolerance policy for cheating, plagiarism, and disruptive behavior. If you're disrupting class, we'll have a talk. But if you're cheating on a quiz or exam or plagiarizing a paper, you fail the course. Not the exam, not the quiz or the paper. The course. You've been warned.
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 2011-2012 Undergraduate Catalog Page 93If you are at all in doubt about whether something in an assignment constitutes plagiarism, email me or call the office. You will often have an answer in the next few hours. I am not at all picky about the form of reference you use, but I do expect some form of reference.
Attendance Policy:Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.
