BAI 150 ACADEMIC INTEGRITY MINI CASES CASE 1: TRUE LOVE It’s spring at UD! Bob is a first year student who grew up in rural northern Ohio. He’s a good athlete and scholar and has been awarded a significant scholarship to attend UD. All the scholarship requires is that he maintain a 3.0 cum GPA. He’s majoring in Business, although currently undeclared. It was his good fortune to meet Sandy, an education major from Chicago, in his History 103 class. They hit it off immediately and began dating. The final exam in this particular section of History 103 was a take-home essay that the students were to do independently. Bob, who was very concerned about maintaining his GPA, started and finished the project early. Sandy was a bit behind the power curve. The syllabus for the course specified that student’s who committed an act of academic dishonesty would receive an “F” on that particular project. The instructor recognized that about 2/3 of their exams were identical. He immediately confronted the students independently and both denied copying another person’s work. Sandy later admitted that she and Bob had discussed the essay, but did not read each other’s actual work. Bob later admitted that they discussed the essay and he gave Sandy a copy of his work. He also asked if he would be “off the hook” if the other person “confessed.” Sandy eventually did so, indicating that she was more at fault for using Bob’s work. An “F” on the final essay will give both students a “D” in the course and reduce Bob’s cum GPA to 2.9. CASE 2: SENIORITIS! Henry is a senior taking MGT 490 in his last semester at UD. He’s having a great time before he graduates and becomes an insurance salesman. Unfortunately, he forgets about an assignment worth 3.3% of the course grade. He notices that his roommate, Steve, who is also taking MGT 490, has finished his analysis and a printout is lying next to Steve’s computer. Henry takes the analysis, copies it, and electronically turns it in to turnitin.com as his own. Steve, although in another section taught by a different instructor, also is required to submit his work to turnitin.com and does so. The software package (turnitin) flags the two assignments, indicating that they are exactly the same. The instructors immediately notify the students. Henry admits his actions and is given an “F” in the course, as specified in the syllabus for his section. Henry does not accept the “F” and appeals the decision.
