4 A student in the Ira A. Fulton School of Engineering is expected to act in an honest, ethical and professional manner.

5 Ethical Responsibility From NSPE Code of Ethics for Engineers Preamble Engineering is an important and learned profession. As members of this profession, engineers are expected to exhibit the highest standards of honesty and integrity. Engineering has a direct and vital impact on the quality of life for all people. Accordingly, the services provided by engineers require honesty, impartiality, fairness, and equity, and must be dedicated to the protection of the public health, safety, and welfare. Engineers must perform under a standard of professional behavior that requires adherence to the highest principles of ethical conduct.

6 What does being ethical mean? What is cheating?

7 Cheating includes… Submitting work that is not your own. Copying from someone else or someone else helped you to the point where it is not your work. Receiving help when the instructor has indicated students must work individually (help not authorized by the instructor) Using materials not authorized by the instructor. Plagiarizing: not documenting other people’s work. Obtaining code from the internet and using it as your own.

8 Examples of Cheating Cases Receiving assistance from a classmate on homework or project(when not authorized by the professor) Copying homework, labs or stealing the information Plagiarism on a project or paper Group working together without instructor’s authorization Cheating on an exam

9 T ypical Sanctions for violating the Academic Integrity Policy 1.Zero points for the project, homework assignment, or exam. 2.Zero points for the project, homework assignment, or exam and course grade lowered by one letter grade. 3.E (failing) grade or XE (dishonesty) grade for the course 4.Disqualification, suspension or expulsion from the School of Engineering

10 Case Discussion In groups of three or four students discuss Case 1, 2 and 3 provided by your instructor Identify a recorder who will take notes for your group As a group answer the questions associated with each case Your recorder should record the group’s answers to case questions The recorder will then report to the class your group discussion for each case

11 Read and discuss Case 1 Handouts in instructor packet under student handouts

12 CASE 1 Manny and Bob take home final What do you think the professor should do? What sanction would you give the students? What would your parents think if you cheated? How would you feel if you were caught cheating?

13 Case 1 Result Bob received a grade of E (his first violation of AIP) Manny received an XE grade and suspension from ASU for one academic year (his second violation of AIP) An XE grade noted as academic dishonesty was recorded on the official transcript An AIP file will be maintained in the Dean’s office for six years or until the student graduates

14 Read and discuss Case 2 Handouts in instructor packet under student handouts

15 Case 2 Lisa’s project is not working If you were John what would you do? If you were Lisa what would you do? The student who took the report and used it as their own was not willing to admit it was not their work What would you do if you were the professor? What sanctions would you give the two students?

16 Case 2 Results Instructor could not determine who did what so both students received an E grade in the course. Typically the student who provides the work and the student who uses the work are both sanctioned when an instructor is not able to determine who did what. An AIP file will be maintained in the Dean’s office for both students for 6 years or until student graduates.

17 Read and discuss Case 1 Handouts in instructor packet under student handouts

18 Case 3 Graduate Students Plagiarize As the professor of the course what would you do? What sanctions would you give the team? How do you think the four students felt? Should their degrees be removed? If you were an employer and you found out that the student cheated and didn‘t have a degree what action would you take?

19 Case 3 Sanctions The School of Engineering retracted each student’s degrees. All four students were given an XE grade for the course. The students appealed the decision, but the decision was upheld by the Hearing Board and the Dean’s Designee. All four students scrambled to enroll in one course to complete their degrees as they were currently employed under the pretense of having a degree.

20 Why do some students cheat ? “I wanted a higher grade” “I was very stressed” “I ran out of time due to work and classes” “Everyone else does it” ?????? “I need to keep my scholarship” “I do not wish to repeat this course” “I thought anything in the internet could be used without documenting” “I thought I could get away with it”

21 Student Obligation To be honest To do your own work To be ethical To do what is moral and fair

22 Summary Students must adhere to the Academic Integrity Policy (AIP). Students have an ethical obligation to submit their own work. Students need to take reasonable measures to avoid having their work be copied. Violations of the AIP can result in disqualification, suspension or expulsion from the School of Engineering. Honesty is the best policy.

23 Summary (Possible Sanctions) Zero points for the project, homework assignment, or exam. Zero points for the project, homework assignment, or exam and course grade lowered by one letter grade. An E (failing) grade or XE (dishonesty) grade for the course. Disqualification, suspension or expulsion from the School of Engineering.

24 As a Fulton student it is a priority to act in an honest, ethical and professional manner.

25 Quiz Give one example of cheating? What is an XE? Give an example of a sanction besides an XE? Where is the AIP file kept? When is the AIP file destroyed? Give one reason why a student should not cheat?
