academic misconduct
Academic Misconduct
  • Any type of cheating that occurs in relation to a formal academic exercise. It can include
  • Plagiarism: The adoption or reproduction of ideas or words or statements of another person without due acknowledgment.
  • Fabrication: The falsification of data, information, or citations in any formal academic exercise.
  • Deception: Providing false information to an instructor concerning a formal academic exercise—e.g., giving a false excuse for missing a deadline or falsely claiming to have submitted work.
  • Cheating: Any attempt to give or obtain assistance in a formal academic exercise (like an examination) without due acknowledgment.
  • Sabotage: Acting to prevent others from completing their work. This includes cutting pages out of library books or willfully disrupting the experiments of others.

  • Change exams from term to term
  • Use limited-time testing
  • Ask open-ended, “mastery” type and personalized, life experience questions
