A Short Quiz and Concept Lesson by Ted Frick
In the Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Conduct, the Indiana University Faculty Council indicates that students may be disciplined for several different kinds of academic misconduct, which include: cheating, fabrication, plagiarism, interference, and violation of course rules.
In particular, the Faculty Council states the following (2023):
"Plagiarism is defined as presenting someone else’s work, including the work of other students, as the submitting student’s own. A student must not present ideas or materials taken from another source for either written or oral use without fully acknowledging the source, unless the information is common knowledge. What is considered 'common knowledge' may differ from course to course.
(quoted from Indiana University's Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities, & Conduct. See especially the section within "Responsibilities: B. Academic Misconduct. Students are expected to uphold and maintain academic and professional honesty and integrity" (Part B.4.c. Plagiarism, 2023)).
