Question and answer
what are the potential consequences of steven's academic dishonesty?
it is important to note that there are varying types of academic dishonesty of which plagiarism is one example. Plagiarism happens to be the most violated form, and the most relevant to our experience as students of higher learning. [ The University’s faculty and staff can comfortably assume that opportunities for other forms of cheating have been either eliminated or greatly reduced based on the technology and resources we are using as participants in the online learning environment. This means that the instructor for each course is in a better position to consider the specifics when
focusing on the most likely issue- plagiarism. He or she has the authority to determine each course’s penalty for violating rules concerning academic dishonesty. A student in violation of plagiarism rules may be “coached” or asked to re-do an assignment. Alternately, the student may not be asked to re-do the assignment but no credit will be given. If the violation is great enough, a higher penalty at the university level may be requested by the instructor. Possible university level consequences include: being removed from the course, receiving a failing grade for the course, suspension, or expulsion. In the “Plagiarism Story” provided as part of this course, Steven resorts to plagiarism as a response to anxiety and time constraints. In such a scenario, Steven’s professor would very likely speak to him about the specifics of the problem- wishing to know what had motivated the academic dishonesty. Some “coaching” could take place in which the professor might help Steven understand the importance of planning ahead, time management, and prioritizing in a busy schedule. In the story, the professor indicates that a conversation will need to take place with the chair of the department. Since it is Steven’s first violation, it is possible that the coaching and possibly some lost points combined with a re-write might suffice as a punishment. For such a light sentencing to be possible, Steven would really need to be sincere and communicate his motivations and intentions to never repeat the offense to his professor. ]
