Academic Honesty: Cheating and plagiarism are serious offenses and will result in failing the particular examination or assignment and/or the course based on the judgment of the instructor. Cheating includes using unauthorized notes or copying another student's answers on a test. It also includes copying someone else’s homework, which will result in penalties for both parties involved. Plagiarism is presenting someone else's words or ideas as your own, without proper citation. This includes direct copying or paraphrasing information from other sources, including the internet.

Listening comprehension : The ability to listen to what someone has to say and identify what is important. The sources for this are the instructions given by the instructor.

You will do this whenever you take notes or answer a question on an exam. Communication skills : The ability to write in such a way that clearly communicates your ideas to others.
