Academic misconduct undermines the value of Wheeler Management Group hosted credentials and devalues the authentic efforts of other learners. Learners who engage in misconduct are therefore subject to consequences as described below.
Academic misconduct is defined as any activity which circumvents, or attempts to circumvent, the learning experience provided by the course through violation of course learning policies or specific policies provided by the instructor or outlined by the syllabus, or misrepresentation of the authorship or conditions of completion of course activities. The following standards provide clarification of the most common types of academic misconduct, but the list is not exhaustive. Other behavior may constitute academic misconduct in a particular course or across the Wheeler Management Group platform.
Work within a Wheeler Management Group activity – all activity on the Wheeler Management Group platform including logins and all course activities is subject to these policies. Work includes but is not limited to exams, quizzes, peer review activities, assessments, discussion board contributions, guided projects, and labs. Furthermore, activities outside the platform that pertain to coursework on the platform are also covered by these policies.
- Plagiarism: Plagiarism is when you copy or reproduce words, ideas, or any other materials from another source without giving credit to the original author. Plagiarism also includes the practice of employing or allowing another person to alter or revise your work, and then submitting the work as your own. Learners may discuss assessments among themselves, or with an instructor or tutor, but all assessment submissions must be original works done independently by the learner. This includes work paraphrased, translated or otherwise modified using automated means. Plagiarism can also include self plagiarism, where a learner submits the same work that they had already submitted for another assessment or module, where this is not disclosed and permitted.
- Use of Unauthorized Materials: using or consulting unauthorized materials (including electronic materials and generative AI tools including, but not limited to, ChatGPT or similar software or applications) or using unauthorized equipment or devices on any work within a Wheeler Management Group activity, unless expressly permitted.
- Unauthorized collaboration: working together with any person on any work within a Wheeler Management Group activity unless expressly permitted.
- Contract cheating: paying, trading, or otherwise getting another person to create work for submission to a Wheeler Management Group course or for work within a Wheeler Management Group activity.
- Impersonation: completing work within any Wheeler Management Group activity (including but not limited to exams, assessments, and learning activities) when logged in as another user or having another user complete work within a Wheeler Management Group activity when logged in as you; otherwise misrepresenting the authorship of work submitted on Wheeler Management Group.
- Unauthorized sharing of resources: making any information about or solutions to homework, quizzes, exams, projects, and other assessments available to anyone else (except to the extent an assessment explicitly permits sharing solutions). This includes both solutions written by you, other learners, outside resources, or any solutions provided by the course staff or others.
- Fraud: any misrepresentation about the authorship or the conditions under which work within a Wheeler Management Group activity was performed not otherwise specified or falsifying any evidence in support of any mitigating circumstances claim.
- Other: any other behavior that confers an unfair advantage to you or someone else or any activity that attempts to dishonestly improve your results or improve or harm the results of others in the performance of work within a Wheeler Management Group activity.
