Academic Honesty Policy

Introduction

A fundamental tenet of all educational institutions is academic honesty; academic work depends upon respect and acknowledgement of the research and ideas of others. Because Charter Oak State College is a nontraditional college, and because some of the student's work may be done at a distance, upholding academic integrity is of utmost importance. Charter Oak State College expects students and its faculty to uphold high standards of academic honesty in their scholarship and learning.

To this end, Charter Oak State College provides information about various web sites that will help students write research papers, provides free tutoring for those who need assistance in writing research papers, and offers a one-credit research writing course. Faculty make it clear on their course syllabi what constitutes academic dishonesty and the staff make it clear in publications and on the website.

When an instructor receives academic work from a student, the instructor expects the work to be that of the student, therefore:

  1. A student shall not receive credit for work that is not the result of the student's own effort or for work that is falsified. A student who is in doubt regarding standards of academic honesty in a course or assignment should consult the faculty member responsible for that course or assignment before submitting the work. A student's lack of understanding is not a valid defense to a charge of academic dishonesty.
  2. A student's name on any written assignment (e.g., examination, report, thesis, project, computer program, laboratory report, etc.) or in association with an oral presentation constitutes a representation that the work is the result of that student's own thought and study, stated in the student's own words, and produced without the assistance of others, except as quotation marks and references accurately acknowledge the use of other sources, including sources found on the internet.
  3. Since many of our courses require group projects, it is important to clarify with the instructor which assignments can be turned in by the group and which must be the work of the individual student.
  4. Unless permission is received in advance from the faculty member in charge of the course involved, a student may not submit, in identical or similar form, work for one course that has been used to fulfill any academic requirement in another course at Charter Oak State College or any other institution. If a student perceives the possibility of overlapping assignments, the student should consult with the appropriate faculty. At Charter Oak State College, faculty are encouraged to use a software package that checks for plagiarism. This software package becomes a database for all papers ever turned in. Therefore if a student's paper has been submitted to the database for checking, if it or a similar paper had been turned in before, the results of the review of the new paper will show that a previous similar or identical paper had been submitted for another course.

Turnitin

Charter Oak uses electronic monitoring to check students papers for plagiarism. Currently Charter Oak is using the plagiarism detection website, Turnitin. When a paper is submitted to Turnitin.com for review, the paper becomes part of the Turnitin.com database. If the paper has already been submitted to Turnitin.com, it will check the second paper against the first paper and it will show line by line the similarities in the two papers and calculate the percentage of similarity.

Definition

Academic misconduct includes, but is not limited to:

  1. Plagiarism is defined as the submission of work by a student for academic credit as one's own work of authorship which contains work of another author without appropriate attribution.  It is further defined as the intentional or unintentional use of data, ideas, written or spoken words without giving appropriate credit to the original source, even if the information from the source is paraphrased or in a modified format.

    Since assignments vary in purpose, the instructor will stipulate the relationship between original thought/work (data and reasoning) that will be required in each assignment.

  2. Copying from another person's paper or exam responses, or receiving unauthorized aid from a person during an exam, allowing someone to copy from your paper, or using unauthorized materials during an exam;
  3. Providing or receiving assistance in a manner not authorized by the instructor in the creation of work to be submitted for academic evaluation (papers, projects, and examinations);
  4. Attempting to improperly influence any member of the faculty, staff, or administration of the college in any matter pertaining to academics or research;
  5. Using another person as a substitute in any form of academic evaluations or doing unauthorized academic work for which another will receive credit; and
  6. Sharing of logon and password information.
  7. Presenting the same or substantially the same papers or projects in two or more courses without the explicit permission of the instructors involved.

If a student knowingly assists another student in committing an act of academic misconduct, such student shall be equally accountable for the violation and shall be subject to the sanctions outlined in the Student Code of Conduct.

Instructor's, Proctor's and Prior Learning Assessment Coordinator's Roles

Instructors will seek to be clear in their course syllabi what constitutes plagiarism and cheating, and indicate when students can submit joint work for evaluation. The Charter Oak Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) Coordinator will seek to make it clear in the materials on portfolio preparation and individual course assessment what constitutes plagiarism and cheating, and the penalties for such actions. Charter Oak State College proctors will, orally and/or in writing prior to the exam, inform examinees of test administration security standards and remind the students of the penalties for cheating. However, students are expected to be familiar with the requirements of the Student Code of Conduct with respect to academic integrity, and any alleged inadequacy of a syllabus or other printed information is not a valid defense to such a charge.

If, during the course of an examination, an instructor or proctor observes suspicious behavior, he/she shall warn the individuals involved regarding the appearance of their actions and request them to cease any suspicious actions immediately. If the behavior continues, it may be considered evidence of academic misconduct.

When an instructor or the PLA Coordinator believes there is sufficient evidence of academic misconduct, the instructor shall notify the accused student in writing (and orally if possible) that unless the student requests a hearing in writing to the Provost within thirty (30) business days to contest the instructor's belief, the instructor shall impose the appropriate academic consequences warranted by the circumstances. A copy of such written notification and action taken shall also be sent to the Provost.

Sanctions

Any cheating in courses, on credential evaluations or exams, or plagiarism shall result in an F for the course.

Plagiarizing Threaded Discussions:  If a student plagiarizes a threaded discussion post and it is his/her first offense, the student will receive a warning and zero points for that threaded discussion.  The second time a student plagiarizes a threaded discussion post he/she will receive a grade of "F" for the course.

Plagiarizing Written Assignments -- The first offense for plagiarizing a written assignment (research paper, report, presentation, etc.) will result in a warning and zero points for that assignment.  If the plagiarized written assignment is the student's final paper, he/she will receive a grade of "F" for the course.  If a student's draft paper is plagiarized, and if points are given for the draft, he/she will receive 0 points.  

Plagiarizing Oral Assignments -- The first offense for plagiarizing an oral assignment (report, presentation, etc.) will result in a warning and zero points for that assignment.  If the plagiarized assignment is the student's final for the course, he/she will receive a grade of "F" for the course.  If a student's draft/practice presentation is plagiarized, and if points are given for the draft/practice presentation, he/she will receive 0 points. 

In portfolio assessment, plagiarism or falsifying documentation will result in dismissal from the portfolio process and no refund of money. If the plagiarism has occurred in 6 credits or less, the student would not be able to reapply for portfolio assessment for one year. If it has occurred in 6-12 credits, the student shall be barred from resubmitting for two years. If it has occurred in 13 credits or more, the student shall be barred from resubmitting for five years.

Breach of security and/or cheating by a student on a standardized examination will result in cancellation of test scores. Cheating on course examinations will result in an F for the test and may result in receiving an F for the course.

If a student is a matriculated student at Charter Oak State College, other sanctions could also be imposed. A breach of security in test administration will result in cancellation of test scores.



Hearing

If the student wishes to contest the sanctions, the student may request a hearing in writing directed to the Provost within ten (10) business days of being informed of the sanction. The hearing process is outlined in Section 4 F of the Student Code of Conduct. If the hearing process, including the appeal process is not completed before the end of the term, the student will receive a grade of incomplete (I) until final resolution of the issue.

Administrative Course Withdrawal : Attendance

Students are expected to attend all courses for which they have registered. Timely course attendance and participation is a requirement for successful completion of Charter Oak State College courses. Students who do not attend a registered course by the close of week 1 or who fail to maintain active participation in a course for two consecutive weeks will be administratively withdrawn from the course with a final grade of "AW".

Administrative withdrawals may have implications on a student’s Financial Aid award and satisfactory academic progress. Students who are administratively withdrawn from a course will not be eligible for a tuition refund. Administrative withdrawal from one or more courses during a semester does not relieve the student of financial responsibility for any costs associated with or resulting from registration for the semester: including tuition, registration or any College fees. When students are administratively withdrawn from a course, a final grade of “AW” will be entered into their academic record and they will be removed from the course in Blackboard.

The Registrar's Office will send students a series of email reminders when they are informed that a student has not logged into a course. When students receive these reminders they must immediately log into their course(s) and participate. Failure to participate in the course after receiving the email reminders will result in an administrative withdrawal from the course(s).  

Administrative withdrawals will be distributed until the end of the withdrawal period each term and session. After the established withdrawal period is over, students who are not in attendance will receive a grade of 'F'. Please refer to the academic calendar for all withdrawal dates.

Administrative withdrawals may have implications on a student's Financial Aid award and satisfactory academic progress. Students who are administratively withdrawn from a course will not be eligible for a tuition refund. Administrative withdrawal from one or more courses during a semester does not relieve the student of financial responsibility for any costs associated with or resulting from registration for the semester: including tuition, registration or any College fees. When students are administratively withdrawn from a course, a final grade of "AW" will be entered into their academic record and they will be removed from the course in Blackboard.

*All Administrative Withdrawals are final.

Administrative Course Withdrawal : Payment Plans

Charter Oak State College offers students a semester based payment plan that requires an initial minimum account balance of $500. Students are financially responsible for making all payments in accordance with the payment plan agreement.  Students who fail to make the agreed upon payments will receive a series of email reminders from the Business Office regarding his/her delinquent payments. 

Students who are late in making an installment payment will be charged a $20 late fee in addition to the installment amount.

If settlement of the outstanding balances is not made within 7 days after the installment due date students will be administratively withdrawn from their course(s).

The Registrar's Office will send students a series of email reminders when they are informed that a student has not logged into a course. When students receive these reminders they must immediately log into their course(s) and participate. Failure to participate in the course after receiving the email reminders will result in an administrative withdrawal from the course(s).  

*All Administrative Withdrawals are final.

Administrative Withdrawal from the College

The Registrar will administratively withdraw students who do not pay the College fee for two consecutive semesters. Students will be administratively withdrawn after the last day to register for classes in the third semester. These students must apply for re-admission upon their return; and if accepted, are responsible for the curriculum requirements and fees at the time of their new acceptance date.

Any students who are sent to the collections agency, through the Business Office, will be administratively withdrawn from the College as well.

Attendance Policy

Attendance Policy for Determining Last Day of Attendance in a Course

Student attendance in courses is defined as the active participation in the course. Faculty will report to the Registrar's Office any student who is not in participation. Active participation may vary depending on the individual course. Just logging-in is not considered "active participation". "Active Participation" includes:

  1. Completion of tests/quizzes;
  2. Submission/completion of formal assignments;
  3. Participation in threaded discussions

Students who do not participate through the Learning Platform (Blackboard) by the end of the first week will be administratively withdrawn from the course. Students who fail to maintain active participation in a course for two consecutive weeks will be administratively withdrawn from the course. An administrative withdrawal will not relieve a student of responsibility for the fees related to the course. The last date of attendance for a student, who is administratively withdrawn, is the last day the student actively participated in the course that includes contact with the instructor regarding the content or expectations of the course if done through Blackboard so it is verifiable.

Academic Course Participation Requirements

Faculty are required to have students respond to at least two assignments each week. That can include test/quizzes, formal assignments, threaded discussions, etc. If faculty are using threaded discussions as one of the assignments, students must

  1. Post the first threaded discussion response by Wednesday at 11:59 p.m. EDT, and
  2. Post all other responses to your peers by Sunday at 11:59 p.m. EDT
Note: Students must adhere to any discussion posting requirements provided in the Course Policies section that requires more than the minimum of two (2) responses to their peers. Students should review the Course Policies section for any additional grading requirements.

Auditing Policy

Auditing a Course

Prior to the start of the course and with the instructor’s permission, students who wish to audit a course may do so by paying 50% of the per credit tuition plus the registration fee. The student may participate in the threaded discussions, but cannot participate in any group or team projects.  The instructor is not obligated to grade the auditing student’s work.  A grade of “AU” cannot be changed to a letter grade once the course has begun.  Likewise, a letter grade cannot be changed to an “AU” once the course begins.  If a student wants a letter grade, the student would need to retake the course for credit, do all of the required work, and pay the full tuition.

Institutional Grading Policy

Grades
The faculty will grade assignments and examinations within one week of receiving them and provide a grade and feedback when appropriate. The course grade will be based on the final examination grade; the mid-term exam, if one is required; and grades on assignments and papers, as appropriate. All research papers, assignments and examinations must be completed by the last day of the course or at the discretion of the instructor. Failure to do so may result in an “F” grade on the student’s permanent record.

Due to the rigors and constraints associated with online learning, there are no extensions available in online courses. However, under "special circumstances" such as serious illness of the student or death in the family, a student may request up to two weeks to complete the course. If the student's request is granted by the instructor and the Dean of Undergraduate Programs, the student must complete the course within the agreed-upon timeframe. A grade of Incomplete will be recorded. If at the end of two weeks the outstanding work has not been submitted to the instructor, the Incomplete grade will become an "F" grade. To request the additional two weeks, a student must download the "Request for Incomplete Grade" form (found in ACORN, on the Students tab, in the Forms section) and submit the completed form to the course instructor. Students who are considering requesting an Incomplete are advised to review the request form to understand the conditions under which their request will be considered.

Faculty have four (4) days after a course ends to submit final grades to the College. Grades posted in Blackboard are unofficial. Official final grades will be posted in our student portal, ACORN. Students may print out a PDF version of their final grade reports to use for company reimbursement.

IDS 101 Cornerstone Seminar: Students must earn an overall, final grade of "C" or higher to pass the course. Students must also earn a grade of "C" or higher on the Research Paper to pass the course.

 

Academic Grade Appeals Procedure

The instructor is responsible for assessing student performance and assigning grades for student work. Such responsibility is by its nature both subjective and objective. If a student feels an error has been made by the instructor in assigning the final course grade, the student may appeal by completing the Grade Appeal form and by following the procedures below. The Grade Appeal form can be obtained via the Student tab on ACORN.

The student must first discuss the issue with the instructor. If the issue cannot be settled at that level, the student must submit a detailed letter outlining his/her reasons for objecting to the grade, including copies of the material in question and course syllabus, to the Dean of Undergraduate Programs within 15 working days of the last day of the course. Within 15 days after the Dean of Undergraduate Programs receives the appeal, the Dean will review the appeal with the instructor and the student, render a decision and send that decision to the student. If the decision results in a grade change, the Dean will discuss the grade change with the instructor.

If the student wishes to appeal the decision of the Dean of Undergraduate Programs, he/she must so notify the Dean in writing within 15 business days; the exact datet will be specified in the letter notifying him/her of the Dean's decision. Within 30 days of receiving the notice of further appeal, the Dean will schedule a hearing. the hearing will be comprised of the Dean of the Faculty, two additional faculty, and one student. The hearing will follow the procedures outlined in Section 4, (part F) of the Student Code of Conduct. The decision of the hearing panel is final and cannot be appealed. if the hearing panel's decision results in a grade change, the Dean of Undergraduate Programs will discuss the grade change with the instructor.

Grading System
Charter Oak State College utilizes a four-point grading system, where an “A” equals 4.0 grade points and an “F” equals 0.0 grade points. Each grade and grade point designation will correspond to a numerical percentage range as shown below.

Incomplete Grade Policy

Because online courses rely heavily on threaded discussions, incomplete grades are not given unless there is an emergency situation. Incomplete grades may be given only in the following circumstances:

  1. The student's work to date is passing;
  2. Attendance has been satisfactory through at least 60% of the term;
  3. An illness or other extenuating circumstance legitimately preventing completion of required work by the due date; (Documentation will be required to submit with this form)
  4. Required work may reasonably be completed in within a two-week period;
  5. The incomplete is not given as a substitute for a failing grade;
  6. The incomplete is not a means of raising his or her grade by doing additional work after the grade report time.

In these circumstances, a student may request a two (2) week extension. Students must complete the following process in order to request an incomplete:

  1. The "Request for Incomplete Grade" form may be obtained on ACORN forms tab
  2. The student initiates the request for an incomplete grade at least one week before the end of the term;
  3. The student must e-mail or fax the form to the Academic Dean, along with appropriate documentation.
  4. The Dean will determine if the documentation is sufficient to warrant the instructor to consider an extension. The Dean will either approve or deny.
  5. If the Dean consents, the Dean will then send the form to the instructor. The instructor will either approve or deny. If the instructor approves, the instructor will state the requirements for completion of the course on this form. The instructor will return the form to the Dean and the Dean will send a copy of the approved form to the student.
  6. The Dean will notify the Registrar of approved Requests for Incomplete Grades.
  7. The instructor submits the final grade to the Registrar on the Change of Grade form.
  8. Incomplete grades appear on the transcript for two-weeks.
  9. After two-weeks, if coursework is still incomplete, grade will change to 'F'.

Class "Netiquette" for Online Learners

  1. Respect fellow classmates. There is a great deal that we can learn from each other, but this can not happen if students feel uncomfortable in class about speaking up (afraid that their ideas will be treated harshly or not "listened to" respectfully) or are worried about what will be said to them or about them once they do speak up. Make sure you do everything you can to make our classroom culture a comfortable learning environment for everyone in the class. We may have people from many different backgrounds in this class and people with many different levels of academic preparation. You should all feel c`omfortable and make each other comfortable with discussing the issues.

  2. Use an appropriate tone of voice. Say what you need to say, but say it in an appropriate tone of voice--one that is respectful and calm. Sarcasm, heavily judgmental or confrontational comments break down good will and create an inhospitable classroom atmosphere. Bullying comments are inappropriate and unacceptable in this class. This is most important in a virtual classroom, where tone of voice is often difficult to "read" from the language on screen (although the use of emotions helps reduce this difficulty in some ways). If you are able to be funny without offending others feel free to do so but please be careful.

  3. Take responsibility for making this class successful. Ask yourself what you can do during each class discussion to move the class forward in a positive way.

FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) Notice

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords students certain rights with respect to their education records. These rights include:

  • The right to inspect and review the student's education records within 45 days of the day the University receives a request for access. Students should submit to the registrar, dean, head of the academic department, or other appropriate official, written requests that identify the record(s) they wish to inspect. The University official will make arrangements for access and notify the student of the time and place where the records may be inspected. If the records are not maintained by the University official to whom the request was submitted, that official shall advise the student of the correct official to whom the request should be addressed.
  • The right to request the amendment of the student's education records that the student believes is inaccurate. Students may ask the University to amend a record that they believe is inaccurate. They should write the University official responsible for the record, clearly identify the part of the record they want changed, and specify why it is inaccurate. If the University decides not to amend the record as requested by the student, the University will notify the student of the decision and advise the student of his or her right to a hearing regarding the request for amendment. Additional information regarding the hearing procedures will be provided to the student when notified of the right to a hearing.
  • The right to consent to disclosures of personally identifiable information contained in the student's education records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent.

    One exception, which permits disclosure without consent, is disclosure to school officials with legitimate educational interests. A school official is a person employed by the University in an administrative, supervisory, academic or research, or support staff position (including law enforcement personnel and health staff); a person or company with whom the University has contracted (such as an attorney, auditor, or collection agent); a person serving on the board of Trustees; or a student serving on an official committee, such as a disciplinary or grievance committee, or assisting another school official in performing his or her tasks.

    A school official has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an education record in order to fulfill his or her professional responsibility.
  • The right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by State University to comply with the requirements of FERPA. The name and address of the Office that administers FERPA is:

    Family Policy Compliance Office
    U.S. Department of Education
    400 Maryland Avenue,
