Sanctions for violations of academic
- I reserve the right to ask any student to explain to me
their solution of any problem on any of the assignments.
- I may do so either one on
one, or during a lecture in front of the whole class.
- The decision as
to how I will ask the student is entirely up to me.
- If I want to ask the student
one on one, I will email them and give the student
- either 6 hours (if
my email is sent before 2 pm) or until 10 am the following morning to
- If I do not receive a response within that time period, I
refer the student to the Center for Student Conduct.
- The students are expected to turn in their exam
prepration sheets to the instructor after each test.
All exams and in-class quizzes
Violations of academic integrity will be
referred by me to the Center for Student Conduct (CSC). I will follow
the rules described below in recommending to the CSC a penalty to be
imposed to the parties involved. The CSC ultimately decides whether to
follow my recommendation or not.
time that I detect collaboration on (even part of) an
assignment, I will impose the penalty from 50% (very unlikely) to 150%
(very likely) of your assignment
this decision is left entirely up to me.
Students A and B have been found to collaborate on 1 problem in the 2nd
midterm. Their grade for this midterm will be between 7.5% (50%
the total of 15%) of the final course grade and -7.5% [minus 7.5
percent] of the final course grade. If violation is detected only in 1
problem, and all other problems clearly
show the students' own work, I may (but am not under any obligation to)
consider assigning the grade between 0 and 7.5%, i.e. in the higher
Student C has been found to use outside help on 1 problem on a
midterm. This student's grade for this midterm will be -7.5% [minus 7.5
percent] of the final course grade.
- In case of the second
violation, I will
recommend that the student(s) be given an XF for the course.
If the instance
of violation involves more than one person, then all people involved in this instance will
be given the same
penalty. This rule will not be changed under any
Extra credit problems
Sanctions for these are described in Instructions for doing an Extra credit assignment.
