Academic Integrity

Students are expected to do their own work at all times. Cheating is a serious offense with serious consequences which may include any of the following:  a grade of zero, course failure, or removal from a program.

 

In this online environment, a certain level of trust was bestowed upon each student to conduct oneself in an honorable and professional manner. Trust and honesty are the foundation of academia! Cheating in an academic setting is a cardinal sin. Keep in mind that there will be severe consequences if this cardinal sin is committed. In case the temptation arises, DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!

 

Policy for Online Exam Environment – Zero Tolerance Policy

 

Navarro College uses Respondus LockDown Browser and video recording of online examination. The following rules are strictly enforced to maintain the academic integrity. Failure to comply will result in a zero grade for the assignment in which the offense was committed. In addition to these rules, the professor reserves his right to enforce the policy based on students’ questionable behavior before and during the exam.

 

  1. Getting ready for the exam:
    1. Room Scan requirements – Scan the area and the room slowly for clear visibility.
      1. Students will scan the immediate area where the computer is used for testing purpose.
      2. Students will scan the entire surrounding area where testing is taken place.
      3. If this scan does not show clearly the testing area, the student will be given zero for the exam.
    2. Place all electronic devices, including but not limited to cell phones, tablets, smart watches, another computer away from the testing area. This can be documented during the room scan for evidentiary purpose.
    3. Keep the microphone and video turn on until finishing the exam.

 

  1. During the exam:
    1. Student is the only person allowed in the exam area. Students are responsible to inform parents, siblings, friends, and anyone else of their exam taking status to stay away from the exam area. If anyone is visible or someone is talking to the student, zero will be given for the exam.
    2. Students are strongly advised to keep their eyes straight forward to the computer screen where the exam is displayed. A slight movement of the eyes is allowed for keyboard and mouse usage. However, continuous deflecting one’s eyes to any direction away from the screen is called for academic integrity violation and zero will be given for the exam.
    3. Respondus uses facial recognition to determine students’ behaviors while taking exam. The following rules are specifically applied when it comes to Respondus documentation of students’ facial features.
      1. The student’s face must be completely and clearly visible in the video for the entire time while taking exam. The face is defined as the frontal area of the human head to include the forehead, eyes, nose, mouth, and chin.
      2. Do not cover the face or impede facial features visualization by sunglasses, clothing articles (hoodies, cap, hat, etc.). Face covering as required for health protocol by the State of Texas is the only exception to this rule.
      3. Respondus will alert students when facial detection is compromised. Students are responsible to correct their behaviors immediately to show their faces again. If this alert is turned off by students, it is a clear violation of academic integrity and zero will be given for the exam.
    4. Do not read the questions and answers out loud while taking the exam. This is not allowed in person face-to-face setting; thus, is not allowed in the online environment. Violation will result in zero be given for the exam.
    5. Students can use one blank piece of paper as scrap paper. If this is needed, students must show the paper slowly and clearly at the beginning of the exam. Students will speak clearly to declare their intention of using the scrap paper for documentation. Failure to do so will result in zero be given for the exam.
    6. Once again, students are strongly advised to keep their eyes forward to the computer screen while taking the exam and maintain their behaviors as that of taking an exam in person in a face-to-face setting. Whatever activities are not allowed in the face-to-face setting for the exam are not allowed in the online environment as well. Zero will be given for the exam for violations.

 

Failure to comply to any of the above rules will result in academic integrity violation and zero will be given for the exam. This is a Zero Tolerance Policy.

 

Policy for Plagiarism

 

  • All written assignments must be new, not using any old or previously graded assignments. Plagiarism will NOT be tolerated, and the penalty is severe.
  • For group assignment, each student is expected to contribute in his/her original work in his/her own words.
  • For individual assignment, do not copy other student’s work or let other copying yours. If there is exact duplication (or overwhelmingly similar as per the instructor’s discretion) of an assignment submitted by two or more students, all submissions will be denied, and zero grade will be given to all students involved.

 

REMEMBER: If a student committed academic integrity, zero will be given for that assignment and this zero will not be removed from the overall grading schematic.

Student Conduct

All students enrolled in classes at Navarro College shall follow the tenets of common decency and acceptable behavior conducive to a positive learning environment. Behavior deemed by the instructor to be disruptive may result in the student being dropped from the course.

  • Students are treated as adults and as professionals; therefore, be mindful of your words and activities, for every action has its consequences.
  • It is the students’ responsibility and requirement to read the syllabus and course outline and be familiar with the policies contained therein.
  • The students are encouraged to utilize Canvas to locate this syllabus, additional class information, lecture material, class related activities, etc.

 

Subject to Change

The Course Syllabus and/or the Course Calendar may be changed as the term progresses at the discretion of the department and/or instructor.

Late/Make-Up Work

  • Students are required to take all exams as scheduled. No exam will be given earlier or later than the scheduled date.
  • There is NO MAKE-UP for Lecture Exam or Lab Practical Exam.
  • To maintain integrity of the exam and fairness to unexpected or emergency event, the following policy is used for ONE missed Lecture Exam or Lab Practical Exam only.
    • The missed Lecture Exam or Lab Practical Exam will be given a zero.
    • At the end of the semester, the professor will take the average of all the exams that student had taken and use that to replace the zero for calculating the Total Points Earned for determination of the Letter Grade.
    • Example
      • There are six major exams (lecture and lab) for the course.
      • Student A missed Lecture Exam 2 – zero is recorded in the grade book.
      • Student A took the other five exams with results as followed
        • Lecture Exam 1 – 80 points
        • Lecture Exam 3 – 90 points
        • Lecture Exam 4 – 70 points
        • Lab Practical Exam 1 – 80 points
        • Lab Practical Exam 2 – 70 points
      • The average of all five exams = (80 + 90 + 70 + 80 + 80) / 5 = 78 points, which will be used to replace the zero for missing Lecture Exam 2.

 

Institutional Policies

Students are expected and required to have read the Student Handbook and to consult appropriate sections of the College Catalog for general academic information.

Attendance and Preparation

Face to Face and Hybrid Online

Regular and punctual class attendance is expected at Navarro College as a key element for student success. Excessive absenteeism is defined as two consecutive weeks of instruction in a 16-week semester (or the equivalent in any shorter term) and may result in being dropped from the course.

Students who miss class to participate in a co-curricular activity must have written permission (e-mail accepted) from a coach/director and must make prior arrangements with the instructor to take an examination or complete an assignment scheduled for that day. 

Regular (daily or weekly) online work is a key element for student success in an internet-based class.  Students must complete the first assignment by the designated deadline to document participation in the course.  The instructor will drop any student who fails to complete an assignment by the deadline provided in Canvas.

Although the instructor MAY withdraw a student from the class for insufficient participation the RESPONSIBILITY for dropping a class belongs to the student! Insufficient participation is defined as not logging in and completing assignments for the equivalent of two consecutive weeks.  If you are unable to complete the course, you should formally drop it.

  • Additional information regarding attendance requirements is available in the Navarro College Catalog. https://www.navarrocollege.edu/quicklinks.html
  • You may drop this class by completing an online form. It is the student's responsibility to visit with his or her instructor concerning course status before submitting the required paperwork to the Office of Admissions and Records to drop this class. Additional information about dropping a class may be found in the Navarro College Catalog. https://www.navarrocollege.edu/handbook/policy/policy-dropping-adding-courses.html
  • Failure to withdraw by the deadline may result in your name remaining on the class roll, resulting in a grade of ‘F’ at the end of the semester. 
  • A student who foresees educational issues related to pregnancy, postpartum recovery, or other physical or mental health matters is strongly encouraged to notify the College as soon as possible.  By doing so, the student and College personnel can collaborate and develop an appropriate plan for the continuation of the student's education.  Pre-planning when possible also may help with particular challenges a student faces while pregnant, when recovering from childbirth, or in response to a physical or mental health concern (e.g., missed classes, make-up work).  The choice to inform the College of any health concern is voluntary. A student is not required to share this information with the College. A student may choose to consult a College counselor or the Office of Disability Services before deciding whether or not to disclose any health-related information.
  • If you are receiving financial aid grants or loans, you must ATTEND AND PARTICIPATE in all classes FROM THE FIRST CLASS DAY.  Do not drop or stop attending any class without consulting the Financial Aid Office. Changes in your enrollment level and/or failing grades may require you to repay financial aid funds.  
  • All students receiving Veterans Administration (VA) benefits must notify the Veteran’s Certifying Official of any enrollment changes as soon as they are made. The Veterans Affairs benefit recipient needs to be aware that the VA may require repayment of all benefits received since the beginning of a semester for any course in which a “W” grade is received
  • According to current Texas law, dropping a course may have serious academic consequences. Under most circumstances, a maximum of 6 courses may be dropped throughout the entire undergraduate degree program. Before you decide to withdraw from this or any other course, make sure you understand the consequences. For more information see the Office of the Registrar.
