Course policies

Academic honesty is expected of all students. Cheating and plagiarism are violations of academic honesty. Any student found violating the academic policy would receive an automatic “ZERO” for the assignment.

Cheating is the act of obtaining information and data improperly or in a deceitful or dishonest way. Examples of cheating are copying from another student’s paper, obtaining information illegally on tests, and using crib notes or deceitful practices.

Late work: All formal papers must be submitted at the beginning of class on the day they are due. There will be a deduction of points. (10% per day)

Please note that it is your responsibility to print assignments well in advance.

Warning: a grade of zero will be given:

• No indication of sources (either in-text or after text)

• Falsification of sources

• Direct plagiarism (taking someone’s words as your own, presenting someone’s ideas as your own)

• Indirect plagiarism (mechanical paraphrases, electronic translations, other cases decided by the instructor)


Make-up work following an absenceThe student is responsible for obtaining all notes and assignments from the classes missed. All quizzes must be taken on the first day after an absence. These arrangements are the student’s responsibility and a Zero will be given for incomplete work.


Students are required:

· to be respectful to the teacher and other students;

· to switch off mobile phones during classes;

· not to cheat. Plagiarized papers shall not be graded;

· to meet the deadlines; Work submitted late for no valid reason is subject to 50% grade deduction;

· to come to classes prepared and actively participate in classroom work; students who refuse to participate may be marked absent at the teacher’s discretion;

· to enter the room before the teacher starts the lesson;

· to attend all classes. No make-up tests are allowed unless there is a valid reason for missing them;

· to follow KBTU academic policy regarding W, AW, I, F grades.

A student must earn not less than 30 points in the two attestation periods. If the sum of the two attestation scores is less than 30 points, the student gets the unsatisfactory mark “Fail” (F) and will not be admitted to the final examination.

The final exam score must be not less than 20 points. If the student earns less than 20 points, the student gets the unsatisfactory mark “Fail” (F).

Students are encouraged to:

· consult the teacher on any issues related to the course;

· make up within a week’s time for the works undone for a valid reason without any grade deductions;

· make any proposals on improvement of the academic process;

· track down their continuous rating throughout the term.
