ACADEMIC HONESTY:

 

Cheating and plagiarism will not be tolerated.  Any student caught cheating will receive a zero for that exam/paper and/or risk receiving an F for the assignment/course.  Plagiarism is defined as the use without proper acknowledgment of the ideas, phrases sentences or larger units of discourse taken from the work of another writer or speaker.

 

The American Heritage Dictionary defines plagiarism as “to steal and use  (the ideas of writing of another) as one’s own”.  In standard academic practices, this means if you copy any more than three consecutive works, written or spoken by another you must acknowledge the source of these works using a footnote and by either enclosing the words in quotation marks, or (if a longer quotation) uniformly indenting and single spacing the material, Correct citation method is APA style.

 

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY

 

The following will apply too cases of academic dishonesty.   The instructor ordinarily has final authority over the grades given to students or the lowering of grades because of cheating or plagiarism.  If it is established by clear and convincing evidence that cheating or plagiarism has occurred.

  1. The instructor will take appropriate academic disciplinary action which may include the awarding of an “F” on the particular assignment or in the course
  2. The instructor will make a report of the incident and of action taken, if any, to the departmental chair, the Vice President for Academic Affairs, Vice President for Student Affairs, and the student.
  3. The Student Disciplinary committee may review the incident and impose conduct discipline, including probation and suspension.
  4. The student may, if he/she so desires, discuss the matter with the Student Disciplinary Committee and/or the Student Judicial Court.

 

POLICY ON ELECTRONIC DEVICES IN THE CLASSROOM

 

All electronic devices (e.g. cell phones, pagers, palm pilots, beeper watches) are considered unnecessary distractions and are to be turned off and (with the exceptions of watches) concealed during that time.  Thus interacting with these devices during class will not be tolerated.  Instructor may make exceptions for instructional purposes.  A student who anticipates an emergency and expects to be contacted in class by an outside source must go directly through the emergency dispatch system identified on each of the respective campuses.  The emergency dispatcher will take the message and deliver it to the instructor. 

 

A student who fails to comply with this policy will be initially dismissed from the class and (per the Instructor’s discretion) may be counted absent.  Points may be deducted for work missed during that time.  A student who violates this policy a second time will be dropped from the course for disruptive behavior.  A student whose electronic device is activated during an exam will be dismissed from the class and denied the opportunity to complete or take that exam.  An instructor may elect not to grad that exam.

Foundation of Leadership – End Chapter Assignment/Participation Rubric

 

End Chapter Assignment Participation: End Chapter Assignment participation is an important component of your educational experience.  Superior participation grades will be given to active students, those that exchange ideas in a thoughtful manner that reflect preparation as well as personal opinions, while exercising the courtesies due others. 

 

Your active participation is absolutely essential to your learning process.  You will be evaluated on criteria such as the following: (a) evidence of having read/understood the material, (b), attempts to relate text or lecture ideas on a personal level.

 

The purpose of the End Chapter Assignment is to provide you with interaction with your fellow classmates.   Read the questions, short assignment, exercise or case study; read what the text or lectures has to say about the topic, and then provide an answer based on the text, other sources you might use and your opinion.  I encourage you to add your opinion, but the overriding emphasis should be on what the text or other professional sources state.  Keep in mind that many of the questions have no absolute right or wrong answer, but you do need to explain your position in such a way as to convince readers that your position is valid.   Answer to the end chapter questions should be well thought-out.  In other words, everyone should participate in the formulation of your answers.

 

 

Since this is a subjective evaluation, I do not pin down the exact number of End Chapter Assignment/Exercises you will be asked to complete or participate in. and length per Exercise, but you should expect to complete at a minimum three exercises during this course.  However, just answering the End Chapter Assignment/Exercise Questions(s) and not interacting substantively will not earn you full credit for this portion of your course grade.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

End Chapter Assignment/Participation is worth 25 pts.  You will be evaluated on.
