10 At the end of the quarter, when all scores are totaled, here is how I handle fractions of a point: If the fraction less than .5 (e.g., 250.49), will round down to the nearest integer (e.g., 250). If the fraction is .5 or over (e.g., 250.5), I will round up to the nearest integer (e.g., 251). Scores for all assignments will be posted on the online gradebook on EEE, and the online gradebook data will be used to calculate your final grade in the course. PLAGIARISM POLICY The basics. The UCI Academic Senate defines plagiarism as intellectual theft. It means the dishonest use of the intellectual creations of another person without proper attribution. Plagiarism in composition courses may take two main forms, which are clearly related: To steal or pass off as one's own the ideas or words of another. This theft may take the form of a few words, a phrase, an extended passage, or an entire paper written by someone else. To use a creative production without crediting the source. Sources may include web pages and interview information, as well as information in print. Giving credit where credit is due. Credit must be given for every direct quotation, for paraphrasing or summarizing a work (in whole or in part) in one's own words, and for information that is not common knowledge. It is the writer's responsibility to ensure that submitted papers are free of plagiarism. All UCI courses include instruction in the proper way to credit sources and thereby avoid plagiarism. Be aware that, because each student has his or her own writing style, and because convenient software exists to match online texts, plagiarism is relatively easy for instructors to detect, and the consequences can be devastating to a student's academic career. Submitting work that you did not write with your name on it is grounds for failure in the course. UCI takes academic honesty very seriously, and instructors are required to report any instances of plagiarism to the academic conduct office, who keeps a permanent record of the offense.
