encouraged Professor Grimey said that students could work together to do research but the writing of the papers need to be done individually as 39their own work39 Jack had previously worked at Mickey39s so he had some particular insights and ideas that he could add Jack and Jane in discussion about the paper both decided to take a particular approach to related to the recruitment issues at Mickey39s which were key to the paper Jane decided to cite the discussion and agreed approach but Jack did not HAS JACK VIOLATED THE HONOR CODE OR STUDENT CODE OF CONDUCT A NO Professor Grimey knew

the accounting club and an officer last year in the finance club although she has held no formal office and has only been a member of the accounting club She submits her resume directly to the

semester and the laboratory report along with a discussion and explanation of the results constitutes a major portion of the semester grade Albert had taken an advanced AP science 0 course in high school where similar sophisticated experiments were conducted In fact the very experiment under consideration was carried out in that AP class with similar results Therefore Albert has has an excellent understanding of the 39unexpected39 results that also occured in his present laboratory experiment He then writes up the experiment using only the current data and without consulting the old

use these and 39spruce them up39 with new titles and headings and an expanded intro and conclusion She sees little risk for plagiarism as the cases already have good sources and cites which she can use along with most of the plagiarized content She also sees little risk since she has changed the paper has good sources cited and the papers are each only worth 8 of the course grade So if she is caught a presumed zero for the paper worst case would still allow her to pass the course Randy had only been caught once before in a freshman class and the penalty was a grade reduction for the paper that only brought her course grade down from a B to a B Professor Quendolini the instructor for the capstone class discovers that Randy had plagiarized on one of the papers Randy agreed on a penalty
