In the student handbook, Brenau University provides the punishment for intentional and unintentional plagiarism in detail. According to the Brenau University Handbook (2012), the punishments for intentionally or unintentionally plagiarizing as a Brenau student are the following: • Professor will file an Academic Dishonesty Incident Report with the Vice President for Academic Affairs • Professor and/or faculty will follow the following sanctions: o For first offense, a grade of zero will be given for the assignment o For second offense, a grade of “F” will be given for the course in which the plagiarism took place o For third offense, the student will be expelled from Brenau University (p.2). Studies have found that students, who successfully plagiarize in the academic world, take those negative ethical behaviors into the business world. Martin and Sloan (2009) explained that students expect people in the business world not to act unethically (p. 40). However, they seem to believe that the only way to advance in the business world is by unethical behavior or mannerisms.
The population of the city is around 3,000, and FHS services about 360 students from grades ninth thru twelfth. The community is very small and close knit, and the high school plays a major role in preparing students for the real word, because most of the students do not attend college after graduation.

The integration of technology in the core areas will also provide additional skill building activities for students so that they will be prepared for the mandatory state test required for graduation. Background Observation of the existing technology made over the last five years.

The first reason the grading policy should not be changed is students/parents would not know their exact grade. For instance, if a parent wants to know how their child is doing in school, they wouldn’t know because the new grading system doesn’t give enough insight (doesn’t break grade down). Also due to the fact that more students pass than fail,
The study showed many strong correlations, which suggested that almost all personality tests are in some way related (Chen & Miao, 2007). This study examined whether or not that suggestion included the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator scale (MBTI). The sampling: rationale and techniques Thirteen undergraduate students participated in the study as part of a class assignment.

Dasilva, Priscilla Mrs. Moore APLAC 2nd 8 September 2011 Revised Overachievers Essay In the book “The Overachievers”, the author Alexandra Robbins uses quite a few of different characters throughout the novel to provide first hand information on high school’s new-pressured educational culture.

Devin Dufrene Essay 4 April 14, 2009 Failure Failure! Some students are afraid of it, Then again some students are given grades and passed anyway. Students should not be given grades and diplomas if they did not learn the necessary information and earn the grade. In this essay I will respond on how I agree with Mary Sherry in “In Praise of the F Word “on how students are hurt later in life First, if student doesn’t learn necessary information in high school he or she will not be able or having a lot off trouble in the after life with college or there new job. In example, if a student gets by in his English class not caring and not trying to learn, but his teacher likes the student so he passed him, when that student goes to college he will have trouble because he doesn’t know how to write a correct essay because he was given the grade.
In “Grades and Money” by Steve Vogel, the author mentions, “… they talk about their grades all the time”(Page 389). Students rarely speak about what they are learning from the course, which is what education is all about. They don’t understand that grades just show if you passed or failed the course. Instead of taking a course that they are interested in, students take courses that they will be able to earn a high grade. “By tying grades to money, we give students incentives not to take risks” (Vogel, 392) that stop them from choosing challenging courses in college.
If you received As in sophomore year, and Cs in senior year, they will conclude that you are a capable student who became lazy. Coursework High school graduation requirements vary from school to school. Most students have the opportunity to take more classes (or credits) then are required to graduate. If you take only the minimum, colleges will conclude that you are doing the least you must do to get by. If you take extra classes (or credits) but they are soft-ball classes (like basket-weaving or calisthenics), this looks just as bad.
