MGMT 337 - Fall 2017
Academic Honesty Policy
(version of 6/29/2017)

ASM Honesty Code

ASM adopted an honesty code for students, faculty, and staff in August, 2011.  Click this link to review the full code. By enrolling in MGMT 337or any other ASM class, you affirm the following pledge:

I will not lie, cheat, fabricate, plagiarize or use any other dishonest means to gain unfair academic advantage.


Acts of academic dishonesty include plagiarism of written assignments, or portions thereof, providing papers and/or files for an assignment to another student, cheating on quizzes and exams, and theft or other misuse of school-provided computing resources. Acts of academic dishonesty will be dealt with in accordance with the ASM Honesty Code and UNM policies on acceptable computer use.


The following paragraphs detail the definition(s) of plagiarism for graded assignments in MGMT 337 and the penalties that shall be imposed.

Plagiarism is defined as any misrepresentation of the work of another as your own. The simplest form of plagiarism is using small portions of the written work of another person (either word for word or paraphrased). More complex and severe instances include using the outline and bibliography of another person's paper, copying significant portions of another person's work such as entire sentences, paragraphs, or sections, and misrepresenting an entire paper as your own work (e.g., purchasing a paper). Plagiarism can also apply to non-textual material such as graphs and figures.

Plagiarism does not exist when adequate reference is made to the work of another when that work is included in your paper. Adequate reference requires that the included material be quoted and explicitly referenced (either by a footnote or reference to a specific item in the bibliography). Although you may avoid plagiarism by adequate reference, a paper or assignment that contains large amounts of quoted or referenced material will generally be graded poorly because it will not adequately demonstrate your own mastery of the material.

For the purposes of this course, three levels of plagiarism are defined:

The penalties for each plagiarism level are as follows:

Lesser (but never greater) penalties may be imposed at the instructor’s discretion. All assignments will be checked for instances of plagiarism. If plagiarism is discovered after a grade has been assigned, the appropriate penalty will be retroactively applied.

Cheating on Assessments, Exams, and Assignments

Unless otherwise stated in assessment, exam, or assignment instructions, all work that is graded is to be completed individually by students without assistance from any other person.  Failure to complete graded work individually or within the limits of less restrictive instructions is cheating.  Students who enable others to cheat by providing assistance or by failing to adequately protect their own work from copying and unauthorized access are also guilty of cheating.

Violation of Acceptable Computer Use Policies

As part of this course, you may be provided with course-specific computing resources including access to computer hardware and networks, physical or virtual workstations, and software.  Violations of the UNM acceptable computer use policy that involve course-related computing, network, and software resources are considered violations of the academic dishonesty policy for this course.


The penalties for academic dishonesty in this class include all of the following:

Lesser penalties may be imposed at the instructor's discretion. Appropriate penalties will be retroactively imposed when academic dishonesty is discovered after a grade has been assigned.
