RADS 5033 adheres to the MSU Code of Conduct. In particular, academic dishonesty, however small, creates a breach in academic integrity. A student’s participation in this course comes with the expectation that his or her work will be completed in full observance of the MSU Code of Student Conduct. A student should consult the MSU Student Handbook for answers to any questions about the code.
Many components of RADS 5033 are designed to be highly interactive with students helping each other learn. Students are encouraged to take full advantage of many resources available including Internet sites, handouts and module notebooks, other textbooks and journals, faculty, and peers. This interactive collegial learning environment is conducive for life-long learning.
Specific components of RADS 5033 are designed to represent the efforts of each student individually and are NOT to be shared. These components include the book critique, electronic journal, leader analysis, and take home examination, all of which are to be electronically submitted to the faculty. Students SHOULD NOT share their efforts in ANY WAY (including but not limited to discussion, electronic files, print copies, notes, etc). The only exception to this rule, is during the final class presentations.
When students submit their efforts (book critique, electronic journal, leader analysis, and take home examination) for grading, they are attesting that they have abided by this rule.
By enrolling in this course, the student expressly grants MSU a “limited right” in all intellectual property created by the student for the purpose of this course. The “limited right” shall include but shall not be limited to the right to reproduce the student’s work product in order to verify originality and authenticity, and for educational purposes.
