This advisor will assist them in completing their degree planning. Stdents may choose a faclty member different from their academic advisor as their project advisor. ACADEMIC INTEGRITY POLICY All members of the DC commnity are expected to engage in their academic tasks with integrity and respect for others. A major part of the learning accomplished in gradate school is the development of critical thinking skills, and these skills are only developed when each person s work reflects his or her own original thoght. Defiance College is committed to helping each gradate stdent nderstand and practice the highest degree of integrity in his or her academic work, and take from that work the greatest intellectal and ethical benefit. Responsibilities of Members of the Defiance Commnity Each member of or scholarly commnity has a responsibility to encorage others to maintain a commitment to academic integrity and honesty. Faclty and administrators have a responsibility to edcate gradate stdents abot the importance of original work and the ways to avoid academic dishonesty. In trn, gradate stdents have a responsibility to maintain high standards of honesty in their work and to seek gidance whenever they are in dobt abot what constittes academic integrity. It is important to note that, in the discovery and sanctioning of an incident of academic dishonesty, the intent of the gradate stdent will not be considered as a factor, so it is vital that the gradate stdent conslt with faclty members abot any potential isses before they arise. Gradate stdents also have an obligation to obtain and be familiar with the DC gradate catalog, the syllabs of each corse in which they are enrolled, and the citation style American Psychological Association (APA). Academic Dishonesty The basic rle for academic honesty is that a gradate stdent s work shold always be his or her own. Any misrepresentation in academic work, inclding plagiarism, is a form of academic dishonesty. Examples of dishonest academic practices inclde, bt are not limited to, sing nathorized notes or material dring an exam, exchanging information with another stdent dring an exam (regardless of whether or not both stdents are aware of the exchange), falsifying data on which the stdent s conclsions are based, having another stdent take an exam in place of the stdent registered in the corse, and sbmitting the same work in two different classes. 14 Defiance College Gradate Catalog

15 The Special Problem of Plagiarism Plagiarism occrs whenever someone else s work is sbmitted or presented for a grade as if it were one s own. This occrs most often when original sorces are not acknowledged or are cited improperly according to the APA pblication manal. Plagiarism ndermines the essential trst between gradate stdents and faclty members, deprives stdents of a sense of intellectal ownership, and ndermines the basic learning process. Another person s work can take many forms inclding papers, essays and articles, book chapters, statistical data, oral or mltimedia presentations, msical compositions, drawings and artwork, and compter programs in either electronic or printed form. Whenever sch material that was originally created by another is presented or sbmitted by a DC gradate stdent, the original sorce mst be acknowledged APA citation style. Examples of Plagiarism (a non-exclsive list): Using the exact words from a sorce, inclding ctting and pasting from a Web site, withot BOTH qotation marks to indicate the extent of the material borrowed and a citation of the original sorce. Paraphrasing or smmarizing ideas from a sorce withot proper citation. Changing the words while maintaining the ideas from a sorce is a paraphrase that mst be cited. Sbmitting for credit a work written or created by another, whether sch work is written by a friend, a recognized scholar, or is down loaded from the internet. Qoting from an nacknowledged sorce dring an oral presentation. Using data other than that prodced by the stdent s own original research withot proper citation of the sorce. Patching together a work sing phrases and ideas borrowed from a nmber of different sorces. Accepting assistance or collaborating with other stdents beyond what is explicitly permitted by the faclty member

16 Remediation and Penalties When a faclty member believes that an incidence of plagiarism or other academic dishonesty has occrred, he or she shold discss the matter with the gradate stdent(s) involved as soon as possible. A faclty member confronted with a sspected incident of academic dishonesty shold conslt with the appropriate master s program coordinator. Once the faclty member is satisfied that an infraction of this policy has occrred, the sanction to be applied may range from remedial actions (sch as reqiring that an assignment be rewritten or a test retaken) to failre of the specific assignment or failre of an entire corse. The sanction, with the exception of sspension or explsion as described below, is left to the discretion of the faclty member, based on his or her jdgment abot the seriosness of the infraction. All sanctions for academic dishonesty, even those involving only remedial actions, mst be reported to Academic Dean so that so that complete and accrate records may be kept. Sch record keeping is vital to the goal of teaching every gradate stdent responsible scholarly practices. Whenever a single stdent is the sbject of mltiple reports of academic dishonesty, or when a single infraction is, in the jdgment of the faclty member, sfficiently serios to warrant referral to the Academic Dean for additional sanctions, the Dean may decide, at his or her discretion, to take frther action in accord with this policy. Sch serios or repeated academic dishonesty may reslt in sspension or dismissal from the College. Reporting of Infractions All instances of academic dishonesty will be reported to the Academic Dean sing the form provided for that prpose. The Dean will maintain a record-keeping system in a file separate from the stdent s permanent academic record. Appeals Process A stdent has the right to appeal a finding that the stdent committed an act of academic dishonesty. Sch an written appeal mst be addressed to the Academic Dean within a reasonable period of time, bt not later than thirty (30) days after the stdent becomes aware of the finding, nless, in the jdgment of the Dean, specific circmstances warrant allowing a delayed appeal. The appeal will be heard by an appeals panel made p of the Academic Dean, the appropriate master s program coordinator, and two (2) faclty members who are crrent members of the Gradate Stdies Committee and who are not from the same division as the reporting faclty member. In the instance when the reporting faclty member is the master s program coordinator, the chair of the Gradate Stdies Committee will take the coordinator s place on the panel. Both the gradate stdent and the reporting faclty member have the right to be heard at this appeal. Separately they can present their previosly sbmitted materials to the panel. After the presentations from the faclty member and stdent, the appeals panel will deliberate and decide whether to accept or decline the appeal. 16 Defiance College Gradate Catalog

17 A hearing before an appeals panel mst be held whenever the Academic Dean determines that the offense(s) committed or alleged may sbject a gradate stdent to the possibility of a sanction at the level of sspension or explsion. A sanction at the level of sspension or explsion may be appealed to the President or President s designee. The gradate stdent mst sbmit his or her appeal in writing to the President within five (5) bsiness days of receiving the decision of the appeals panel and mst state the gronds pon which the appeal to the President is based. The only acceptable gronds for this appeal are 1) to determine if the process of academic discipline has been condcted fairly and in accord with stated procedres, 2) to determine whether the decision reached was based on evidence, 3) to determine whether the sanction imposed was appropriate to the violation(s), or 4) to assess new evidence that was not available at the original appeal. The President or his or her designee is not reqired to condct a new hearing and legal consel is not permitted to participate in this appeal. Conclsion Defiance College is committed to helping each gradate stdent become proficient and confident in the best practices of scholarly endeavor in their chosen field. It is this commitment that gides the above policy. It is the goal of Defiance College to prevent academic dishonesty and to encorage stdents, faclty, and administrators to strive for the highest ethical standards in all academic work.

All written assignments mst be reflective of professional work and spported by rational thinking, appropriate literatre, and reason. Use of Hman Sbjects for Research The se of hman sbjects for any type of research project presents ethical and legal considerations. It is the responsibility of the investigator to protect the health, safety, anonymity, and dignity of all participants. For researchers doing action research in their own classrooms or places of employment sing variations in instrctional methods or procedres, parent/employer permission is not needed. However, parents/employers shold be notified in advance that there is a project being condcted and that the reslts will be written p as the capstone experience in a master s degree. Parents/employers shold be given the opportnity to receive a smmary of the findings. In sitations where children (nder 18 years of age) in classrooms, schools, or bsinesses are asked to participate in the stdy, parental permission mst be granted before the child may participate.
