Incorporating an Honor Code into an Information Assurance Program
Livermore, Jeffrey A.
Journal of Learning in Higher Education, v13 n1 p45-48 Spr 2017
Plagiarism and cheating is on the increase around the world. Academic misconduct hurts the student committing the offense, other students who know about the offense, the faculty, and the academic reputation of the school where the misconduct occurs. One of the steps that a school can take to fight academic misconduct is to incorporate an honor code and its' values into their programs. The faculty teaching in ABC College's (pseudonym) Information Assurance program initiated a college-wide implementation of a simple honor code. This article presents best practices from a variety of schools, and hopefully begins a dialog on what can be done to eliminate or minimize academic misconduct from the Information Assurance educational system.
