Categories of academic dishonesty

Academic dishonesty includes: plagiarism; improper use of one's own work; fabrication; cheating; and facilitation of dishonesty by another person.

Plagiarism is the act of presenting the work or methodology of another as if it were one's own. It includes quoting, paraphrasing, summarizing, or utilizing the published work of others without proper acknowledgement and, where appropriate, quotation marks. Any unacknowledged use of another's words, ideas, or electronic processes (including papers written by other students) constitutes plagiarism, as does unauthorized or inadequately credited use of foreign language, scientific, or mathematical calculation of modeling programs or online services.

Improper use of one's own work is the unauthorized act of submitting work for a course that includes work done for previous courses or projects (at this university or elsewhere) as though the work in question were newly done for the present course or project.

Fabrication is the act of artificially contriving or making up material, data, or other information and submitting this as fact.

Cheating is the act of deceiving, which includes such acts as communicating or receiving information from another during an examination; looking at another's examination (during the exam); using notes when prohibited during exams; using electronic equipment to receive or communicate information during exams; using any unauthorized electronic equipment during exams; obtaining information about the questions or answers for an examination prior to administering of the exam; or whatever else is deemed contrary to rules of fairness, including special rules designated by the instructor for the course.

Facilitation is assisting someone in committing plagiarism, fabrication, cheating or any other type of academic dishonesty. Facilitation of academic dishonesty is fully equivalent to other acts of academic dishonesty.
