hours—this is your chance to come to me and confess your transgression. If you do not raise the matter ofyour own accord, I will check with the appropriate Dean and if it is your first offense, you will receive azero for that assignment/exam/worksheet/extra-credit problem. This will be registered as your “firstoffense” with the Dean. If it is your second offense, then the matter will be referred to the faculty counciland I will argue forcibly that you should receive a zero for the course and that your behavior shouldbecome part of your permanent academic record. See.If you have observed a classmate engaging in cheating, it is your responsibility to report this behavior tome. On the one hand, you should want to do this because the presence of anomalously high grades in theclass will stimulate me to increase the difficulty of the course and skew any curves I may choose toimpose, adversely affecting your grade. On the other hand, if I observe that you saw someone cheating,but you do not report it to me within forty-eight hours of the event, then I will consider you an accomplicein the activity, and you will be subject to sanctions based on your involvement. A typical sanction will be tohalve your score on the assignment in which you were an accomplice to the cheating and make that gradeineligible to be dropped.If you actively aid a cheater (as by making your paper available), then you will be subject to the samesanctions as the cheater themselves. Again, you have forty-eight hours to confess your transgression.The forty-eight hour rule is designed to allow you to discreetly bring matters related to academic integrityto my attention. In addition, it is designed so that in cases where cheating has many participants (rangingfrom observers, to abettors, to cheaters), every person has a chance to “come clean” and avoid severesanctions.Policies andProcedures –(McMaster’s Official Legalese)Page6of10
