General Prevention Tips

Academic Misconduct

Academic Misconduct includes the alteration of grades; involvement in the acquisition or distribution of unadministered tests; and the unauthorized submission of student work in more than one class.

Cheating

Cheating is an act of deception by which a person misrepresents his or her mastery of material on a test or other academic exercise.

Fabrication

Fabrication refers to the deliberate use of invented information or the falsification of research or other findings with the intent to deceive.

Plagiarism

Plagiarism occurs when a person represents someone else's words, ideas, phrases, sentences, or data as one's own work. When submitting work that includes someone else's words, ideas, syntax, data, computer code, visual images, or other non-textual materials, or organizational patterns, the source of that information must be acknowledged through complete, accurate and specific references. All verbatim statements must be acknowledged through quotation marks and in proper citations.
