    DEFINITIONS OF CHEATING, PLAGIARISM & COLLUSION
    Excellent information regarding cheating, plagiarism and collusion adapted from Muhlenberg College's Academic Integrity Code:
     
     

    1.
    CHEATING    (Includes but is not limited to examinations, quizzes, assignments, projects) 
       Any attempt to:
           (1) look at another student's work,
           (2) communicate with another student verbally, by signal, or in any other manner any information concerning the content of the work, 
           (3) use any unauthorized materials, such as notes, books, laptop computers, cellular phones, or other            programmable electronic devices or sources, not specifically designated by the teacher of the course for student use during the examination period, or
           (4) engage in any other activity for the purpose of seeking aid not authorized by the teacher.
     
     
    2. PLAGIARISM
     Intentional or unintentional copying from a book, article, notebook, or other paper or electronic source material whether published or unpublished, without giving proper credit through the standard use of quotation marks, footnotes, and other customary means of identifying sources, or passing off as one's own the ideas, words, writings, and experiments of another.
    Plagiarism shall also include submitting without the consent of the teacher an assignment already tendered for academic credit in another class or course.
     
    3. COLLUSION
    Working together in preparing separate assignments in ways not authorized by the teacher.
    Academic work produced through a cooperative effort of two or more students is permissible only upon the explicit consent of the teacher. The collaboration must also be acknowledged in stating the authorship of the report.
