Responsibilities of Faculty Members
Faculty members should outline their policies concerning evaluation procedures and their expectations pertaining to academic integrity at the beginning of each course. They must ensure that student performance is judged solely on the basis of academic work in courses and projects. Because of the differences in disciplines and the type of work involved, faculty interpretation regarding what constitutes academic honesty may vary across campus. Since project-based education places a strong emphasis on group work, faculty members should be particularly attentive to the distinction between group work and individual performance expectations.
Faculty members are responsible for knowing and understanding WPI's policy and procedure for dealing with academic dishonesty. They are encouraged to implement measures designed to minimize or prevent academic dishonesty.
