Student Learning Outcomes

Statement Regarding Students with Disabilities

Statement Regarding Students with Disabilities: Accommodations for students with disabilities are determined and approved by Disability Access Services (DAS). If you, as a student, believe you are eligible for accommodations but have not obtained approval please contact DAS immediately at 541-737-4098 or at DAS notifies students and faculty members of approved academic accommodations and coordinates implementation of those accommodations. While not required, students and faculty members are encouraged to discuss details of the implementation of individual accommodations.

Rules in a nutshell

"no hands." When viewing the work of others, your hands should not be doing anything, and you should leave the discussion empty-handed.

On Collaboration & Academic Integrity

Students are encouraged to discuss and collaborate as much as possible. However, it is obviously not acceptable to copy another student’s solution. Your work must be your own. In addition, simply copying solutions found online is not acceptable. Be aware that homework assignments, projects and exams will not just focus on producing correct code, but explaining how things work.

Being enrolled in this course means that you pledge to uphold the high standards of academic ethics and integrity expressed by the Oregon State University Student Conduct and Community Standards by which you are bound. In particular, you will not misrepresent the work of others as my own, nor will you give or receive unauthorized assistance in the performance of academic coursework. You should understand that your instructor would report any infraction of academic integrity to the Office of the Dean and that any such matter would be investigated and prosecuted fully. Typically, the penalty is a grade of F in the course.
