They believe since there is such a high level of cheating in high school that it becomes a habit they bring to college with them. The last example is, but since there are colleges using the honor codes they find that “many schools with academic honor codes allow students to take their exams without proctors present, relying on peer monitoring to control cheating” (McCabe, Donald, and Pavela). The colleges find that when they use honor codes they can trust their students and their peers to see if there was any form of cheating. But if they did not use the honor codes they would have to monitor the class and see if anyone was cheating or not. They find that with the honor codes they have less cheating then without the honor
A school can not function without a set guideline of rules, responsibilities, and disciplinary actions. In source C, paragraph five, a statement by McCabe is made. “Honor codes don’t always work...their success depends on a culture of academic integrity”. CHS has an ambition for academic integrity but a majority of students do not even know what that means. What CHS needs is a sound base for an honor code and to make students understand what our honor code means.
The goal of the usage of this fact is to show readers this common term does not reflect real traits of smart people and can be treated as an insult because of that. It is one of the few examples of Fridman’s appeals to readers’ logic. The essay is based on general data; the author mentioned schools and universities promote negative attitude to smart students: “Nerds are ostracized while athletes are idolized” (Fridman). But he did not use any statistical or science data to support his position. For example, Fridman could provide data about scholarships and other types of funding for sports and other activities.
Broken Arrow should not establish honor codes I believe that we shouldn’t have honor codes in schools. Honor codes suspend students on acts of cheating and plagiarism. Well what about those students who have never broken a rule in their life? They didn’t even know they were plagiarizing, should they get suspended and have that on their permanent record for the rest of their lives? “They are used to punish well-meaning rule-followers for minor infractions yet, because they rely on reluctant
“Do not be too moral. You may cheat yourself out of much life so, Aim above morality. Be not simply good; be good for something (Thoreau).” Many college students look to get through college by any means even breaking the concept of academic integrity. Few students strive to go beyond the pathways of cheating even if it is morally wrong. Academic integrity is more of a moral code.
Banned Books: Good or Bad? Should students be exposed to the real world through books or should they be shielded from it? There are many people who agree that banned books should be banned because it is ethical, and valid and it prevents students from emotional stress. On the other side of the argument, people argue that students have the right to read whatever they want. Many books are challenged and banned in schools because they contain inappropriate content or bad language; however, some people have a strong belief that these books are worth reading because they represent ideas of free speech and other important lessons that students will need throughout their lives On the pro side of the argument, there are many reasons why some people support banning books in schools.
Cheating and plagiarizing are both examples of academic dishonesty. Violating the act of academic integrity is also done by students who portray academic dishonesty. Failing to practice academic integrity can result in immense consequences. Teachers, students, or institutions who lack academic integrity and are dishonest with their actions may harm the overall education and the perspective of students, which will most likely decrease the chance of success for students in the future. Cheating and showing dishonesty could change the way an instructor views a student 's character.
This is really good because the colleges aren’t judging on the color of our skin but instead our actual capabilities. On the other side the color blind methods seriously frustrate me. They make me mad because it shows that American people still can’t have equality in their heart, and they have to pretend. These color blind methods are a great step ahead but I’m hoping that eventually when colleges look at a black college applicant they wouldn’t think any differently than if they were looking at a white
Modern society uses morals to fuel the decisions of daily life. These moral standards set society apart from the uncivilized creatures of the past. Yet the people of the modern day think if a moral does not directly “hurt” another individual, it’s not imperative for them to fallow. Due to this lack of compliance schools set up honor codes, protecting individuals who are targets of these heinous acts, and punishing the offenders. Without an honor code in place, a school cannot take justice for the individuals at fault.
“‘While cases of hurtful speech are not crimes, if the individual(s) identified are students, MU’s Office of Student Conduct can take disciplinary action.’” (Graham). The University of Missouri created codes that suggest if a student is using hateful words towards another person, they can get in trouble for breaking the rules that they have set up for the students. Like any other situation, students say that this is a violation of their rights No one wants to go to school and feel like they are being targeted by the color of their skin, the type of person they date, or even the way they
The main reason an honor code would be foolish to instill in the minds of the student body would be due to the fact that Fairmont Height students have about as much integrity as Benedict Arnold. Students cannot be trusted when it comes to their work and it definitely can 't be trusted when it comes to honoring a code that is dependent on students having the discipline and integrity to uphold it. I see having an Honor Code as just another wall that students would eventually tear down and bury in their dus on the way to what they
On the other hand, students will want to cheat if everyone is doing it. Honor codes that are reinforced by peers will still cheat because the tolerance isn’t as high if the administrators of the schools reinforced them. Most honor codes have many different levels of consequences; it all depends how much it’s going to weigh on the cheaters if it’s possible for them to do so. Within many schools, there are “some sort academic dishonesty culture, thus causing more to encourage others to cheat”, (Source C). It’s so easy for them to cheat and get away with it because everyone is doing it that there’s really no need for a honor code to be put in place at
Gary Gutting and Mark Edmundson the authors of the essays “What is College For?” and “On the Uses of a Liberal Education” respectively expressed their opinions on how college isn’t what it used to be. Gutting said some universities don’t teach what they are supposed to; they make some classes compulsory so students end up taking classes that are unnecessary. In result when students are given these particular courses as they become disinterested and aim for average instead of learning the material. Gutting also points out lack of academic engagement is why people misinterpret the existence of the college. He says both students and professors need to work together in order to keep the true meaning of college, according to him is to nourish a world of intellectual culture.
The student author of the editorial seems to respect the honor code Groveton expects from its students, yet the author assumes the code itself is solely responsible for the alleged reduction in cheating at the school. Citing a survey to further empahsize the aforementioned assumption, the author only invites more speculation on the topic rather than providing further evidence as intended. While cheating is a frowned upon topic in all universities, this editorial is rife with assumptions and fallacious deduction, rendering the argument weak and unconvincing. First, the reporting system for Groveton 's novel honor code and the "old-fashioned" system it replaced both relyed solely on a human witness for reporting. Teachers used to monitor students and the new protocol calls for students to monitor each other and report any instances of cheating.
Some professors evidently feel the need to help these students, which they should but, not just pass the Sooleem students because they don’t speak English well. The pass-fail system will not allow for professors to be biases and will show if the student really put the effort in and earned the pass. The professors should also be there to clarify lectures and assignments. At Grassi Noll, the professor said they wouldn’t be able to help because of their scholarly pursuits, which is understandable, they have busy schedules and are bound by contracts that require scholarly pursuits but, they still have an obligation to help the students if they have questions about that professor’s class and provide assistants and resources to students. With that said, just because the students sit in silence and don’t understand English doesn’t mean they get to just give a passing grade that they did or didn’t earn.
