Rev. 2 - Jan. 19, 2010 • WELCOME • COURSE SYLLABUS FOR BIOLOGY 1B Spring 2010 Cheating, Plagiarism or Keeping a Copy of a Midterm The students are not allowed to keep the midterms. The reason for this is to allow the instructors to use questions from previous exams. It is very difficult to write clear and meaningful multiple choice questions. If you leave the room with your exam, you will be considered cheating. Your GSI will explain what defines plagiarism. But the most common type is copying from the web and not carefully citing the source. A ‘cut and paste” without quotation marks is plagiarism. Also, paraphrasing a work without citations is plagiarism. BE CAREFUL. GOOGLE IS A VALUABLE RESOURCE TO DETECT PLAGARISM. Cheating is not only dishonest, it is stupid. If you are caught you will be reported to the Office of Student Conduct. Their standard procedure for dealing with first-time cheaters is: 1) An “F” in the class; 2). A letter in your file which identifies you as a cheater. This letter, upon request, will be sent to medical and graduate schools, employers, etc.); 3) Many hours of campus service and ; 4) Risk of suspension or dismissal. It just isn’t worth it. Please read Warning to Cheaters in the Announcements on our web page. Enrolling in a Class Given at the Same Time as Biology 1B Lectures Since Biology 1B is web cast some students are temped to enroll in another class given at the same time as our lectures (MWF 8-9 AM).
