Class Information
Academic Dishonesty Policy and Penalty for Violation:
Academic dishonesty will not be tolerated in this course. Cheating along with Plagiarism will not be tolerated.
SafeAssign will be used for course assignments. A SA report of 15% or less is acceptable. Any SA report higher than
15% will result in a “0” (zero) for the assignment.
The following information is quoted from Section 21 of the Palm Beach Community College Student Handbook, p. 33:
“Academic misconduct, including, but not limited to, unauthorized use of aids, cheating, fabrication, plagiarism, or
facilitating academic dishonesty in the classroom or other college environments, as defined below:
Plagiarism
Although difficult to define, plagiarism consists of taking the words or specific substance of another and either copying
or paraphrasing the work without giving credit to the source. The following examples are only some of the many forms
plagiarism may take:
i. Submitting a term paper, examination or other work written by someone else. This is a flagrant instance of plagiarism.
ii. Failure to give credit in a footnote for ideas, statements of facts or conclusions derived by another.

iii. Failure to use quotation marks when quoting directly from another person, whether it is a paragraph, a sentence or
even a part thereof
iv. Close and extended paraphrasing of another”
On page 30, the Palm Beach Community College Student Handbook goes on to say:
“Any student who is found to have violated these acts…may be subject to the maximum penalty of expulsion or any
other penalty authorized herein.”
Consequences in the BAS Program for violating Academic Dishonesty Rules (including the Plagiarism Policy):
• When a student violates the institution’s Academic Dishonesty/Plagiarism policy, he/she earns a “zero” for the
assignment.
• For repeated violations, the student earns an “F” in the class if/when deemed significant by the instructor
• Expulsion from the program is possible for subsequent violations if/when deemed significant by the instructor
Assignments, Tests, Quizzes and Final Exam Schedule, with percentage/points of grade:
Prior to completing any lessons or assignments, please complete the “Required Assignment on Plagiarism”
Also, in addition to the case studies assignments, a written Capstone research paper will be submitted one
chapter at a time throughout this course on Blackboard. A presentation will be due near the end of the semester
term. This will be a live “virtual” presentation at a scheduled time.
Important Note: You are required to make your initial discussion board posting by Wednesday of each week
in order to give your fellow course colleagues time to respond to your posts as well as enrich the discussions.
Points will be deducted if initial posting is posted later than Wednesday. The initial discussion should be 250
words. Two peer responses should have a minimum of 150 words each. In addition, each initial discussion
should have a reference and in-text citation. Points will be deducted if there is not an in-text citation or
reference.
Capstone Research Assignment

Research Paper/Project Assignment”. Please READ this information as it is vital to the successful completion of
this project. In addition, there is also a Research Paper Theories and Concepts Resource Guide to help during
this process.

well written with proper grammar, spelling, punctuation, and references. The written assignments are graded as
