    Alameda International High School International Baccalaureate Career-Related Programme Academic Honor Code

    The faculty and administrators of Alameda International High School believe that every student has the right to pursue an education free from the problems caused by any form of academic dishonesty. As a student at Alameda International High School, you are expected to maintain the highest standard of personal integrity, honesty, and truthfulness. The IB course of study is difficult. One of the measures of maturity and success is the ability to reach one’s goals without succumbing to unethical conduct. A student who chooses to pursue the challenge of IB courses also chooses to abide by the principles of the Alameda International High School Honor Code. MALPRACTICE The International Baccalaureate Organization defines malpractice as “behavior that results in, or may result in, the candidate or any other candidate gaining an unfair advantage…” and includes: • Plagiarism – the representation of the ideas or work of another person as the candidate’s own • Collusion – the supporting of malpractice by another candidate, as allowing one’s work to be copied or submitted for another • Duplication of work – the presentation of the same work for different assignments • Other – includes: 1. taking unauthorized materials into an exam, test, quiz or other assessment situation 2. engaging in misconduct during an exam, test, quiz or any other assignment 3. falsifying any records 4. copying, paraphrasing, reusing or submitting another’s work without acknowledging the source, including information from the Internet 5. receiving or giving of any unauthorized assistance on any form of academic work The IB and AIHS faculty is opposed to malpractice and cheating for several reasons. • Cheating does not level the playing field. Cheating may result in a student receiving the same or a better grade than students who have honestly earned the grade. Such dishonesty could result in the cheater’s grade point average and class rank being unfairly inflated and thus negatively affecting other students’ class rank. • Cheating misrepresents to parents, colleges and teachers a student’s mastery of the subject. • The time taken to monitor students for cheating causes a reduction in the time a teacher has to use for academic instruction. • Students who are mature enough to select and qualify for a rigorous academic program should also be mature and committed enough to work for and accept the grades they earn. Students who have questions regarding whether or not something constitutes plagiarism have a responsibility to consult with the teacher prior to submitting the work/assignment.
