CS 101 Introduction to Computers Spring 2022 Syllabus - Academic Dishonesty


You are expected to do all classwork on your own, individually. The only exception is the quiz activity for lecture attendance You can talk to other students, ask your instructor and read your notes to answer the attendance questions.

If the work is designated as "individual", (all tests, projects and homework, for example), one person taking any part of another person's work (with or without their permission) and claiming it as his or her own is plagiarism and will not be tolerated. Any occurrences will be dealt with according to the University policy. Here is a link to the policy and explanation. This policy allows for a minimum penalty of zero on an assignment AND a record in the student's file. Repeat offenders (in ANY class) face increasing penalties with each offense.

Cheating is defined by its general usage. It includes, but is not limited to, the wrongfully giving, taking, or presenting any information or material by a student with the intent of aiding himself/herself or another on any academic work which is considered in any way in the determination of the final grade. Any question of definition shall be referred to the University Appeals Board.

The only way to LEARN to work with computers is to DO it. Please DO ask for help at any time except during tests. Dr. Keen and the Teaching Assistants have office hours; use them. Ask your Teaching Assistant questions in open lab; that is why they are there. You should not wait until the night before an exam to start studying for it. For asking general lab questions, you can go to ANY 101 Teaching Assistant, not just yours. The list of all Teaching Assistants is here. Talking to other students is NOT allowed during any of the tests during the semester.
