|The Loyola College Honor Code states, in part, as follows: “Out
of concern for the College and the community in which we study, each student
at Loyola must maintain the highest academic honesty. In order for
us to uphold this degree of excellence, the Honor Code requires students
to report any act of academic dishonesty or they will be violating the
Mission of the Code and, thus, be guilty as well.”
“All students of the College are expected to understand the meaning of this Code. Ignorance of the Code is the fault of the student and not a valid reason for committing an act of academic dishonesty. The following will constitute violations of the Code and are defined below: ...”
1. Cheating - The use of unauthorized assistance or material or the giving of unauthorized assistance or material in the carrying out of an academic piece of work. Students will also be expected to follow the rules set by a course instructor as presented on a written syllabus. 2. Stealing - The wrongful taking of another's property or knowledge, either by force or in secret. This also applies to the property of the College library. 3. Lying - A false statement made with the conscious intent to mislead others from knowing the truth. 4. Plagiarism - The act of imitating or presenting an already authored work as the original thought of one's own mind. All quoted material must be recognizably cited as the work of another author. Phrasing or ideas that are not a student's own must also be clearly credited to the original author... 5. Failure to Report a Violation - The conscious failure to report any student who has committed a breach of this Code.”
The Code also states that "All registered undergraduate [emphasis is mine] students of Loyola College in Maryland are automatically bound by the Honor Code." Technically, as graduate students, you are not bound by the code. However, I hope that the above will help you understand my personal requirement for academic integrity.
The relevant rule for this course is that exams and virtual keypad feedback must be the student's own work. The penalties for any type of cheating will be a grade of "F" for the course.
