This optional guide offers options on how to ask your student about their coursework, their work completion tasks, and make an assessment about potential misconduct. It might guide you as an instructor-of-record toward a productive conversation and toward to your decision of a student’s responsibility/ non-responsibility for an incident of potential academic misconduct. Often, Department Chairs are excellent resources on conversations if you are looking for further reference.

 

For Student-Support:

Students’ Guide to Navigating the Misconduct Process (pdf)

Please ensure you are signed into your @boisestate.edu account, then click the link above. This optional poster may be helpful to provide to a student if they have questions about the conduct process that are outside your experience, or if you want to point them to a helpful resource. You might offer this campus-available resource to any student at any time, although it is not required. Please note this site also already offers student-viewing of this resource under the “For Students” page.

 

NOTE:

These optional help-documents suggest approaches for navigating the academic misconduct process. In cases where there appears to be difference between help-documents and the Student Code of Conduct, the Student Code of Conduct governs as the authoritative source and origination for procedures as do university policies in general.
