  76. 76. If you see academic misconduct by another student, would you report it?<br />Yes, always, it’s the honest and/or ethical thing to do<br />Yes, if I thought the penalty and professor would be fair<br />No, it’s none of by business, and I’m only responsible for my own actions<br />No, it’s the responsibility of the faculty to catch cheating<br />
  77. 77. If a professor accused you of cheating and you had cheated, would you admit it?<br />Yes, always, it’s the honest and/or ethical thing to do.<br />Yes, if I think they really know / can prove I cheated<br />No, never admit anything – make them prove it<br />No, I’d be too embarrassed to be thought of as a cheater by the professor<br />
  78. 78. Does the possible penalty affects whether or not you will cheat?<br />Yes, I consider the risk versus reward <br />Perhaps, depending on the circumstances<br />No, I don’t think I’ll get caught<br />No, I don’t think about the penalty <br />
  79. 79. Why do you think most people cheat?<br />Don’t think they will get caught<br />Did not study enough / lack of preparation<br />Don’t care about the class<br />Level the playing field when everyone cheats <br />Lack confidence in their own academic ability<br />Competition / Pressure to do well in school<br />Opportunity – chance to cheat was there<br />Laziness – taking the easy way out<br />Instructor doesn’t care / allows it to happen<br />
  80. 80. What happens if you get caught cheating in MIS 111? <br />Loss of credit on the assignment (very likely)<br />Lower or failing letter grade in course (common result)<br />Notification of the Dean of Students (very likely)<br />Notification of the Eller Ethics Program (very likely)<br />Especially if you have a 2nd offense, Eller College or the Dean of Students may also:<br />Add a temporary or permanent transcript notation<br />Prevent you from entering major (advanced standing)<br />Expelled you from the College, or perhaps, University<br />
