The issue of academic dishonesty becoming a habit if it is successful resonates with me. In my opinion, cheating does in fact become an acceptable ubiquitous habit if academic dishonesty is not addressed. In conclusion, one lifelong benefit of practicing academic integrity is making habit of being honest and trustworthy in all situations through one’s life. A personal vision of mine is that one day all students will uphold academic integrity and no additional pressure will be placed on students to cheat. My advice to being a morally upright college student is to never waste time getting distracted by things that will not help you in the future.
In scholarship, the rules of honesty must be obeyed by the students and faculty, thus indicating that all efforts of an individual should refer to the academic work. Academic assignments are to help students learn and grade exist to show how fully the target is achieved. Therefore student’s own effort and
“Many high school, colleges, and universities have honor codes or honor systems: sets of rules or principles that are intended to cultivate integrity “. My school, Rockville HIgh School, should maintain honor code or honor system to prevent plagiarism. This allows a “ healthy academic environment”, where you can feel safe and relieved knowing that no one will copy your answers and use it to get credit.Many students in our school don’t even know honor codes exist and is placed in this school to avoid academic dishonesty. Even if this school strictly establish honor code, high school students still find a way to cheat. One good thing about maintaining honor codes, is that the students know that there is a consequences if they cheat or a form

success. Tinto developed a theory to explain student retention called Tinto’s Theory of Student Departure. Tinto’s (1993) theory of student departure, will also serve as the theoretical framework of this study. Student persistence is in the forefront of higher education concerns (Reason, 2009). Persistence occurs when students successfully integrate into the college setting academically and socially (Tinto, 1975).
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. Integrity is fundamental to everything we do in college, I don’t think we can have genuine learning without integrity.
In the section titled Teaching the AHA states “Integrity in teaching means presenting competing interpretations with fairness and intellectual honesty...leading them toward the insight that history is a process of living inquiry, not an inert collection of accepted facts” (AHA Statement on Standards 11). Additionally, the AHA highlights that textbooks, course offerings, and public history presentations should represent “the diversity of human experience”, which is primarily the goal of Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States (AHA Statement on Standards 11). However, students hold the freedom to openly disagree with certain interpretations and it is not the role of the teacher to dismiss criticisms. The role of the teacher is to present conflicting interpretations and allow students to come to their own conclusions. Lastly, the section called Shared Values of Historians discusses the importance of creating critical dialogue.
I think that there are, the most obvious being that Potter’s resignation will ensure that other academics are sure to ensure that their opinions and articles are well supported with evidence. The message is certainly sent that articles, especially those on controversial topics, have to be properly supported with evidence that supports the opinions given. Even considering this, I do not think that this consequence undermines my argument. In order to get this positive consequence, Potter does not have to be pushed to resign, but can be disciplined in other ways that show the importance of proper evidence. I think that the initial outrage was actually enough to create this consequence, showing academics the possible outcome of not supporting opinions on controversial topics with evidence.
What is education and how does that education lead to success? Many authors and historic figures have reached education through many different paths. According to them, being educated does not mean a diploma judges your level of intelligence. Although, it is argued that to be successful one must an educated person. I believe that to be educated, one must not give up in the learning process no matter the difficulty of it because education is involved in one’s success paths, but the way education is learned does not define the destined path to success.
