Summary of “Academic Integrity” by Arden Miller and Adena D. Young-Jones Which one do you believe cheats more in schools, an online course or a face to face course? Arden Miller and Adena Young-Jones did an article over which one tended to be worse when they found results that were kind of shocking. Of course you expect an online course to cheat more but that was not the case. The results really varied on who the person was, sexuality, age, and other personalities of a person. Arden and Adena, both took surveys of “639 students in both types of classes.” It was easier to that the students taking the face-to-face classes cheated more than the students taking online classes. When completing the survey, “students felt it was easier
Tommy Raskin in Cheating Students (2013) suggests that cheating isn’t an isolated problem, but an issue that comes about when a multitude of symptoms come together to ultimately make organic learning undesirable. Raskin carries his claims by emphasizing that the issue will continue to persist, until Educational systems change their overall method of engaging with students. These changes would require the following adjustments: moving away from postmodern educational systems, redesigning an educational system that adheres to modern day societies, learning to put an emphasis on student engagement as opposed to student disciplinary actions, developing a new and pristine way of standardized testing; and finally, creating a society which promotes
I agree with the Marymount’s Academic Integrity Policy and procedures. The Office of Student Conduct and Academic Integrity has set up rules and procedures that is fair and “balances the needs of the individual students with the needs of the Marymount University community,” (Marymount University Community Standards). There are four principles used to make sure their goal for the students and the community is achieved. And they are: prevention, intervention, hard reduction and retention. Prevention is about educating the students about the standards at Marymount University before the matter in question takes place.
Tiffany Mikkelson Composition 106 February 14, 2016 Honor system In the essay “Is Academic Integrity in our College Campuses Under Assault.” It asks if by having an honor system it helps keep students from cheating. I can see both sides as to how having one may or may not help. Having an honor system is a good idea as it will help to keep most students honest.
An honor code can be so effective that “many schools with academic honor codes allow students to take their exams without proctors present, relying on peer monitoring to control cheating” (Source F). Despite this system, there is research that “indicates that the significantly lower levels cheating” (Source F) at schools with honor codes. This is possible because there is a peer culture that denounces cheating, making kids embarrassed to commit academic dishonesty. Such a peer culture was formed by educating the students about the value of academic dishonesty.
The nature of cheating originates from the common misconception of helping others and a student’s lack of self-confidence. Plagiarism, not so different from cheating, disperses from the broad range of information on today’s technology. Through an authentic study, it has been revealed that teachers have established many students who have cheated their way through complexed assignments. Even misleading students who have kept a high grade point average has been found as participants of academic dishonesty. Today, professors seek to find different measures that should be taken to decrease cheating and plagiarism.
Who says these students are being honest in the first place. It seems too easy for a student to simply "agree" not to cheat. Furthermore, a student can file a faulty report of cheating on a fellow student. For example, what if a student cheated himself, then proceeded to report the student he copied from as the cheater?
Taking the time to proofread one’s work is necessary to avoid the mistake of plagiarizing another’s work. After going through the read section, I find that plagiaphrasing will be the hardest thing for me to avoid. Plagiaphrasing is the act of using another author’s work and only altering a few words within the sentence (Bethel University, 2014). If I am not on top of completing my assignments early and taking the time to fully proofread my work I could see how it would be easy to plagiaphrase.

Introduction Academic Integrity is an essential component of third level education because it is the fundamental building block in which we derive our professional ethics and integrity from. It sets a pattern for life long integrity in all areas of life. Our job as students is to construct knowledge honestly and fairly. A culture of honesty earns a great deal of respect.

One of the most crucial traits a scholar can develop is a high level of self-efficacy which is essential to academic success. The ability to achieve and to recognize that success can come from being industrious should be the deterring factor for a student who considers committing the act of plagiarism. What is plagiarism one might ask? Voelker, Love & Pentina (2012) define plagiarism as, “putting forward another’s work as your own” (p. 37). This very pervasive problem plagues the education system, and many researchers and psychologist seek to explain the driving force behind students’ academic dishonesty.
