Academic misconduct

Document Type



Academic misconduct occurs whenever students cheat on classroom assignments or exams. There are many ways in which this occurs that involve computers or other types of portable information technology devices, such as personal digital assistants (PDAs) and cellular phones that are capable of storing digital files, remotely searching Internet Web sites, sending text, or receiving messages. To help prevent such abuses, academic institutions are increasingly creating and enforcing acceptable use policies that govern the purposes and ways in which school computer resources or those used on campuses may be used.
