By enrolling at CALLED Christian School, the student agrees to the following statement:
"As a student of CALLED Christian School, I understand that it is my responsibility to uphold God’s biblical mandate that my life testimony demonstrate actions of integrity. In so doing, I will complete all assignments as instructed, without resorting to cheating or plagiarism. I understand that it is my responsibility to turn in my assignments in a timely manner, complete my own work, not share my work with others, and treat all students, teachers, and staff with respect."
Cheating is giving aid to a student or receiving any form of aid, regardless of the source, without the consent of the teacher of the curriculum. Assistance in daily lesson work is not considered cheating if the student actually does the work. However, multiple occurrences of cheating on daily work or exceptional cases may result in an Honor Code violation. The line between lesson “assistance” and cheating is drawn at the point of someone other than a student or something providing actual answers to questions. Students must complete quizzes and tests without the aid of any notes or other forms of written information and without the information provided by human sources. Students may receive help to clarify word meaning if they do not understand questions, but prompts that would guide students the correct answers are inappropriate. In-Class advisors are responsible for monitoring coursework to assist teachers in verifying student submission integrity. When determinations of cheating on quizzes or tests have been made, those students will receive a grade of zero (0%) for those assignments in their entirety.
Examples of cheating include, but are not limited to,
Whether intentional or not, plagiarism is submitting work that is not the student’s own thoughts and opinions, but has originated from another source and is not properly documented. Selfplagiarism occurs when a student submits work completed in another course or another context as if it is original work for a current assignment.
• LUOA teachers in grades 6–8 focus research instruction on summarization principles. In addition to quotes, the students are asked to put information in their own words; sources are still expected with the summarization.
At the beginning of each school year, every student in grades 6–12 is presented with a Back to School Quick Start orientation. Included in this orientation is instruction for properly citing reference sources and practical measures to avoid plagiarism, as well as a wealth of additional information to help students succeed. All projects that require research and source citation must have a Works Cited page in order for students to receive credit. These reports also require the use of in-text citation called “parenthetical documentation,” according to the MLA citation style.
To ensure academic integrity, LUOA teachers use Turnitin, a national plagiarism detection database. When plagiarism is identified in a student’s report, the plagiarized report will be returned to the student.
Consequences for plagiarized reports range from resubmitting the report for a maximum grade of 80% for a first offense and a grade of zero for the second offense, to eventually no course credit and/or administrative withdrawal for repeat offenses.
Once a student is withdrawn for violating the Honor Code, reinstatement is considered only upon written application to and approval by the administration of LUOA. Reinstated students are automatically placed on probation. At the administrator’s discretion, certain conditions may be imposed, such as requiring proctors for tests and exams.
