When the student turned in the exam the instructor noted several similarities between the student's exam and a nearby student's exam. The instructor also noted several erasures on the exam paper. In addition, the two exams were different versions of the same test. Incorrect answers on the student's exam would have been counted correct if alleged student had the second version of the exam. The Assistant Professor sanctioned the student by requiring that the student take the Development and Integrity course. The student did not contest. Since this was the student's 2nd violation, a hearing panel is automatically involved. The hearing panel decided to:

Case #2005/2006 -86--Investigators did not find enough information to carry the case forward. Case Closed.

Case #2005/2006 -85--A Freshman was alleged to have plagiarized an Internet site by copying directly from the site without adequate citation.

End of Fall 2005 Semester

December

Case #2005/2006 -75-An Instructor assigned the class a set of exercises to be accomplished individually. The topic of unauthorized collaboration was discussed in class as the assignment was given out. The syllabus stated, "On your own (you may NOT work with someone else on this!! Remember the honor code folks.)" During grading, it was noted that numerous statements turned in by students were nearly identical. In some cases, students who were not doing well in the class were suddenly able to submit perfect work. The GTA helping with the class determined several students had received help on the project. Students were told in class that if they met with the Instructor before a certain deadline, they would be given a zero on the project and that would be the end of the matter. A sophomore in the class did not meet with the Instructor. The Instructor had information justifying the Sophomore's involvement with unauthorized aid. At first the Sophomore denied the allegation, but after seeing the information, decided to accept the zero on the assignment and the mandate to take the Academic Integrity course. The Sophomore did not contest the allegation and is enrolled in the AI course this spring. Case Closed.

Case #2005/2006 -74--A Graduate Student was alleged to have plagiarized during an oral presentation. While presenting during a seminar class the student is alleged to have copied figures, layouts, and quotes from a presentation found on the web without appropriate citation. The Associate Professor sanctioned the student with an XF for the seminar class. The Graduate student contested the allegation and asked for an investigation and hearing. The Honor Council hearing panel struggled with the decision, but ultimately voted that the student did not violate the Honor Pledge. Case Closed.

Case #2005/2006 -73--A Senior was alleged to have engaged in unauthorized collaboration on a test. The Instructor alleged that following the return and review of a test the student picked up another student's test and altered the name on the test. The student is alleged to have then claimed ownership of the paper by submitting it for grade correction. The instructor contacted the student who's original name was on the paper and that student identified that test and claimed original ownership. Additionally, a handwriting analysis was conducted that further supported the correct ownership of the paper. The Professor sanctioned the student with an XF in the course. After the Case Review the student contested the allegation. A hearing panel found the student in violation and upheld the sanction.Case Closed.

Case #2005/2006 -72--A Senior was alleged to have plagiarized on a case report for class. The Instructor reported that the numerical data and analyses were identical to the author's end notes. The Assistant Professor sanctioned the student with a zero on the assignment. The student did not contest. Case Closed.

Case #2005/2006 -71--A Freshman was alleged to have plagiarized on a research paper. Upon checking the student's references the Instructor noted that they were all unusual references and not easily accessible. Upon further examination the Instructor noted that in two of the citations the page numbers did not match the sources nor did the content. In addition, one of the listed sources is so obscure that there is no electronic copy available and there is no paper copy located at KSU. The Instructor states that the only thing common to these references is that they are all listed on the same web site. The Instructor's conclusion is that the student went out of the way to select obscure references to insert into the paper to give a false appearance that some research was done. The Assistant Professor sanctioned the student with an XF in the class and is requiring that the student take the Academic Integrity course. The Freshman did not contest. Case Closed.

Case #2005/2006 -70--Two names were furnished to the Director in a case report stemming from a previous case. The Director appointed two Case Investigators to look at information and talk with both students. The CIs did not find enough information to move the case to a hearing and the Director closed the case. Case Closed.

Case #2005/2006 -69--A Sophomore was alleged to have plagiarized while writing a research paper. The student failed to meet the expectation for citation of reference outline by the instructor. The Assistant Professor sanctioned the student with a zero on the paper and a required rewrite for reduced credit. In addition, if the student fails to submit the rewrite the sanction will include the Academic Integrity course. The Sophomore did not contest. Case Closed.

Case #2005/2006 -68--A Freshman was alleged to have plagiarized on a research paper. Following a clearly outlined procedure for citing sources within a research paper, the student submitted a paper without proper citations used within the body of the paper. The Assistant Professor sanctioned the student with a zero on the paper and a required rewrite for reduced credit. In addition, if the student fails to submit the rewrite the sanction will include the Academic Integrity course. The Freshman did not contest. Case Closed.

Case #2005/2006 -67--A Freshman was alleged to have plagiarized on a research paper. Although clear directions were provided related to appropriate citation method and expectations, the student is alleged to have not cited reference material in the text of the paper. The Assistant Professor sanctioned the student with a zero on the paper and a required rewrite for reduced credit. In addition, if the student fails to submit the rewrite the sanction will include the Academic Integrity course. The Freshman did not contest. Case Closed.

Case #2005/2006 -66--A Freshman was alleged to have engaged in unauthorized collaboration on two lab reports and a quiz. Specifically, the student is alleged to have submitted two lab reports, after grading, that the student claimed had been recorded inaccurately. The Instructor stated that neither of these lab reports contained the required TA signatures nor were scores recorded in the grade book. the Instructor also stated that following the final exam, the student presented a quiz to the TA claiming that the grade once again had been recorded in error. The Professor stated that the name and signature have been erased and written over. The Professor continues by stating that the hand writing on the quiz that was turned in doesn't match the student's handwriting on the final exam. The Professor sanctioned the student with an XF in the class and is requiring that he take the Academic Integrity class. The Freshman did not contest. Case Closed.

Case #2005/2006 -65--Several students were alleged to have used Face book, a message board site, to post "The Word of the Day" which was given at the end of each class for the purpose of crediting those students who did attend class. Six students (3 Sophomore and 3 Freshman) were alleged to have either supplied information or requested information related to "The Word of the Day." The Professor sanctioned the students with an official warning from the Honor & Integrity System office. In addition, 107 other students were identified to be members of the message board. Twenty-five of these students were not in the section of the course taught by the Professor but were enrolled in a second section offered by the university. The second section did not utilize "The Word of the Day." Two other members of the message board have not been identified as students at the university. The Case Investigators were unable to determine if any of these 107 students actually used the message board to obtain information related to "The "Word of the Day." Therefore, each of these students will receive a letter informing them that they are receiving an unofficial warning by the Honor & Integrity System Office. An unofficial warning means that their names will not be entered into the database of Honor Pledge Violators but that they have been investigated for an Honor Pledge Violation. The purpose of this letter is to clearly articulate the violation that occurred and to prompt the students to use care in their future academic endeavors. (For related sanctions see Case #2005/2006 -07) Case Closed.

Case #2005/2006 -64--A Freshman is alleged to have engaged in the use of unauthorized aid on two exams during the semester. The student was alleged to have conspired to submit a copy of an exam for grading purposes in such a manner that allowed him to work on the exam outside of class for a longer period of time than was given to complete the exam. The exam was then turned in by another participant who claims the exam was found outside of the classroom on the night the exam was given. On the second exam the student is alleged to have changed the name on a submitted exam by erasing the original student's name and substituting the student's own name for the purpose of receiving credit for another student's work. The Professor sanctioned the student with an XF for the class. The Freshman did not contest. Case Closed.

Case #2005/2006 -63--A Sophomore and a Junior were alleged to have plagiarized on a final lab group summary submitted for class. Specifically, the instructor stated that the summary contained sentences that were copied without appropriate citation (failure to use quotation marks) from the lab text. The Graduate Teaching Assistant sanctioned the students with a zero on the assignment. The students did not contest. Case Closed.

Case #2005/2006 -62--A Senior is alleged to have plagiarized while submitting a report for a distance education class. The student was required to write a report on "Way Out There in the Blue." The instructor alleges that the student copied material without appropriate citation from Amazon.com and Simon and Schuster. The Graduate Post-Doctorate sanctioned the student with an XF in the class. The Senior did not contest. Case Closed.

Case #2005/2006 -61--A Junior is alleged to have engaged in unauthorized collaboration while taking both the mid-term exam and the final exam. Upon noticing similarities in two students mid-term exam, the Instructor created two separate versions of the final exam. The Instructor then monitored the students during the exam. The Instructor repeatedly identified one student copying off of the other student's paper. The instructor also called in another person to witness the copying behaviors. In addition, upon comparing the students' results the instructor noticed that both papers matched even though the symbolization was different on the separate versions of the final exam. The Associate Professor sanctioned the student with an XF in the class. The Junior did not contest. Case Closed.

Case #2005/2006 -60--A Freshman is alleged to have plagiarized while writing a report for an outside of class assignment. The instructor became curious about the content and structure of the paper, when it was received. An Internet search was conducted using the first line of the submitted paper. The search resulted in identifying a paper entitled "A Different View of the Homeless." Further comparison identified an exact match between the submitted paper and the paper located on the Internet. The Instructor sanctioned the student with an XF in the class. The Freshman did not contest. Case Closed.

Case #2005/2006 -59--Report Withdrawn

Case #2005/2006 -58--Four Seniors were alleged to have taken exam questions out of the classroom without permission. This was done for the purpose of reconstructing the exams outside of class to use as study aids. This violation, although occurring in the fall 2003 semester, was discovered during the fall semester of 2005. The Instructor discovered that students were circulating study sheets that were almost exact matches to the tests used in the class. Following an investigation by the instructor the parties responsible were identified and an Honor & Integrity System Violation report was filed.
