Gather Information

Ideally, allegations will be supported by documentation. This documentation may include:

  • Copies of the syllabus which clearly explains the instructor's expectations and consequences of academic misconduct
  • Copies of the assignment/exam in question
  • reports.
  • Copies or links to unauthorized source materials
  • Notes retrieved from the student
  • Emails between the instructor and student relating to the event
  • Summary statement by the instructor of any intervention that occurred during the execution of the violation (such as moving the student to a different seat in the class, witness reports, etc.)
  • Written reports of observations made during the event

While filing the violation, electronic copies of relevant information can be attached directly to the violation report.
