 Academic
Integrity
Policy
 Academic
integrity
is
to
students
what
the
Hippocratic
Oath
is
to
doctors‐‐‐it
is
a
form
of
 professional
integrity
by
which
you
are
expected
to
abide.
 
 Academic
Integrity
is
about
performing
in
your
role
as
student
in
ways
that
are
honest,
trustworthy,
 respectful,
responsible,
and
fair
(see
www.academicintegrity.org
for
more
information).
And,
in
 general,
this
means
that
as
a
student,
you
will
complete
your
academic
assignments
in
the
manner
 expected
by
the
Instructor.
 
 In
Physics
labs,
we
attempt
to
balance
the
learning
value
that
can
be
gained
by
students
putting
their
 heads
together
with
the
necessity
of
individual
evaluation.
This
is
difficult
because
while
we
want
to
 facilitate
your
learning,
we
also
need
to
assess
your
individual
learning
and
abilities
(not
what
your
 friends
learn
or
know).
 
 In
the
physics
lab
class,
you
will
be
working
with
others
on
the
lab
experiments
but
the
assignments
 themselves
are
NOT
group
assignments‐‐‐you
may
NOT
copy
answers
or
portions
of
answers
from
 others
and
you
may
NOT
write
down
the
answers
that
someone
else
developed,
say
in
a
study
session.
 So,
here’s
our
suggestion.
Talk
to
your
classmates
about
the
concepts
and
ideas‐‐‐for
example,
“what
 exactly
is
electric
potential?
And
what
does
it
have
to
do
with
the
upcoming
lab?”
But,
we
do
not
 recommend
that
you
answer
the
pre
or
post
lab
questions
with
other
people.
When
you
do
this,
you
 are
likely
to
end
up
writing
down
the
answers
that
really
are
someone
else’s
answers‐‐‐not
your
own.

 
 If
you
need
help
on
the
actual
pre
or
post
labs,
you
should
visit
the
Physics
Tutorial
Center
or
the
 LTAC’s
office
hours.
This
would
be
the
honest
way
to
get
assistance
when
you
are
struggling.
So,
it
is
 best
to
not
leave
the
pre
and
post
lab
write‐ups
to
the
last
minute.
If
you
DO
consult
with
your
peers
 and
you
want
to
assure
us
that
you
have
upheld
academic
integrity
regardless,
please
acknowledge
 your
peers’
assistance
on
your
report.
 
 We
also
strictly
prohibit
the
use
of
old
labs
and
old
lab
instructions/assignments.
If
you
turn
in
an
 assignment
that
uses
values
from
an
old
lab,
you
will
receive
a
0
and
a
warning.
If
you
do
it
again,
 we
will
assume
that
you
are
copying
labs
previously
submitted
by
another
student
and
you
will
be
 reported
for
academic
dishonesty.
