Caleb Institute expects every student to abide by the highest standard of ethics in the completion of all their coursework.
Honesty in written and verbal assignments requires a balance between using words and ideas that are part of the common domain and careful ascription of borrowed ideas and words. Ideas and words of others may be used only with acknowledgment. Failure to do so is plagiarism — academic version of stealing.
The most obvious form of plagiarism is the direct quotation of words without quotation marks and footnote.
Other types of plagiarism consist of paraphrases of another’s words and ideas with no reference to the source.
Academic dishonesty also includes submission of work under one’s own name which is primarily the product of another person’s work, helping another’s dishonesty, cheating on examinations and tests, and giving dishonest information for purpose of gaining admission, credits, etc.
Aiding and assisting in plagiarism will result in the same consequences as determined by the academic office.
All cases of cheating or plagiarism are reported to the Academic Dean for further investigation.
