I have heard the teacher's
discussion of plagiarism, and I understand that I must use
research conventions to cite and clearly mark other people's
ideas and words within my paper. I understand that plagiarism
is an act of intellectual dishonesty. I understand it is academically
unethical and unacceptable to do any of the following acts:
- To submit an essay written
in whole or in part by another student as if it were my
- To download an essay from
the internet, then quote or paraphrase from it, in whole
or in part, without acknowledging the original source.
- To restate a clever phrase
verbatim from another writer without acknowledging
- To paraphrase part of
another writer's work without acknowledging the source.
- To reproduce the substance
of another writer's argument without acknowledging the source.
- To take work originally
done for one instructor's assignment and re-submit it to
- To cheat on tests or
quizzes through the use of crib sheets, hidden notes,
student's paper, revealing the answers on my own paper
to another student through verbal or textual communication,
sign language, or other means of storing and communicating
information--including electronic devices, recording
cellular telephones, headsets, and portable computers.
- To copy another student's
homework and submit the work as if it were the product of
my own labor.
I understand that the consequences
for committing any of the previous acts of academic dishonesty
can include a failing grade for the assignment or quiz, failure
in the class as a whole, and even expulsion from the university.
I will not plagiarize or cheat.
