Assessments, such as quizzes, and tests, are a critical part of any academic program. They offer important information about your progress toward mastery. But this information is helpful only if it is accurate. And it can be accurate only if the assessment represents your work and only your work.
Unless otherwise instructed by your teacher or by a specific assessment, you are expected to honor the following principles while taking assessments:
- You and you alone will take the assessment.
- You will not copy or redistribute any part of the assessment in any way—electronically, verbally, or on paper.
- You will treat the assessment as "closed book"—meaning that you may not use any textbooks, references, or other materials (printed or electronic) during the assessment—unless your teacher or the specific assessment otherwise instructs (for example, you are specifically told to refer to certain pages in a book as part of the assessment).
- You will treat the assessment as "single browser"—meaning that during the assessment you may not log in a second time to your course, or open your course or related materials on another browser on another computer.
- Your answers will represent your work and only your work, free of any outside assistance. You will not plagiarize in any way.
- You will not confer with other students, family members, or acquaintances, either in person or through electronic communication, during the assessment.
You may also be asked to submit oral assignments for teachers to grade. Your oral work must be completely free of plagiarism. Plagiarism in such assignments includes copying another person's work without providing direct reference to the author, having another person provide your recording, and so on. Be sure to ask your teacher if you have questions regarding citing, or using other sources.
Unless your teacher or specific directions inform you of exceptions, you are expected to follow these principles while taking assessments and completing written or oral assignments. Only by honoring these principles can you assure both academic and personal integrity.
