Plagiarism is stealing another person's thoughts, ideas, or words. Evidence of plagiarism in assignments (or cheating on quizzes/tests) may result in a failing grade for the assignment; evidence of plagiarism on the final exam may result in an "F" for the semester.
Teachers may give assignments that encourage or require cooperative learning; however, specific assignments that are designed to test the individual's understanding of concepts must be completed without giving or accepting assistance.
