Academic Integrity…CHEATING

Warrior Wednesday

Is this okay?

  • I copied and pasted just a few sentences off the internet for my Literature paper.

Your teachers say…

  • Sure, IF you cite it. Any thoughts that you borrow must be credited.

  • Copying the work of others without crediting them is illegal. It is considered cheating.

  • Haven’t you ever wondered why there are credits at the end of a movie?

Is this okay?

  • To help me out with my essay, I borrowed my brother’s paper from two years ago.

Your teachers say…

  • No, this is not okay under any circumstance. This is cheating.

  • Teachers are smarter than they look, especially English teachers. They can usually recognize the difference between your work and the work of someone else.

  • If you try this in college and get caught, you can be kicked out.

Is this okay?

  • I missed two days of class, so I copied my friend’s homework to get caught up.

Your teachers say…

  • There is never a good reason to copy homework; this is cheating.

  • What you should copy are the NOTES you missed.

  • It’s a good idea to discuss the material you missed with a classmate, but your work should be your own.

Is this okay?

  • My friend and I worked on a homework assignment together.

Your teachers say…

  • It depends on the assignment. It also depends on if you are working together or simply copying the work of someone else.

  • Working together is often encouraged, especially in math.

  • Splitting the homework in half and then combining your answers is cheating.

  • You can’t write an essay together if it’s supposed to be your own work.

Is this okay?

  • I had too much to do and didn’t get a chance to read the book, so I just read the spark notes online.

Your teachers say…

  • There’s nothing wrong with doing some additional research on a book, IF YOU ALREADY READ!

  • Relying only on spark notes or other online resources instead of reading is considered cheating.

  • Using summaries from the internet is the same as stealing someone else’s thoughts.

Is this true?

  • Cheating is not a big deal.

Your teachers say…

  • Cheating is a HUGE deal.

  • It can get you administrative discipline in high school.

  • It can get you kicked out of college. (real example: student kicked out of the Air Force Academy the day before graduation for cheating)

  • It can get you fired from a job. (real example: local firefighters cheating on their promotion exam)

Is this true?

  • Sometimes it’s okay to cheat, especially if everyone else is doing the same thing.

Your teachers say…

  • No, it’s not.

  • There is never a good reason to cheat.

  • It may be easy to convince yourself it’s okay, but it is not.

  • Adults sometimes think it’s okay to cheat, but they’re wrong too. (real examples: teachers cheating on the CRCT, Georgia Tech coach George O’Leary fired for resume fraud)
