...Honesty and Integrity Honesty Being truthful, straightforward, and candid are aspects of honesty. Truthfulness is required. Deceptions are usually easily uncovered. Lies erode credibility and undermine public confidence. Untruths told for seemingly altruistic reasons (to prevent hurt feelings, to promote good will, etc.) are nonetheless resented by the recipients. Straightforwardness adds frankness to truthfulness and is usually necessary to promote public confidence and to ensure effective, efficient conduct of operations. Truths presented in such a way as to lead recipients to confusion, misinterpretation, or inaccurate conclusions are not productive. Such indirect deceptions can promote ill-will and erode openness, especially when there is an expectation of frankness. Candor is the forthright offering of unrequested information. It is necessary according to the gravity of the situation and the nature of the relationships. Candor is required when a reasonable person would feel betrayed if the information were withheld. In some circumstances, silence is dishonest; yet in other circumstances, disclosing information would be wrong and perhaps unlawful. Integrity Being faithful to one’s convictions is part of integrity. Following principles, acting with honor, maintaining independent judgment, and performing duties with impartiality help to maintain integrity and avoid conflicts of interest and hypocrisy. “Do what’s right legally and morally”, these are the words......

...Honesty in the Academic Environment Jasmine Mix RDG 504 January 18, 2013 Jessica Montgomery Honesty in the Academic Environment Introduction Six year old Kylie is asked by her teacher “Why did you place the pencils in your backpack and take the pencils home?” Very unsure of the appropriate response, Kylie simply says “ I didn’t.” The teacher then goes over to the child’s book bag to take out the pencils that are accused of to be missing. Kylie then states that she must have accidently placed the pencil in the book bag after completing the end of the day assignment while packing up to go home. Regardless of the reason the action occurred, the teacher proceeds to have a thorough discussion regarding the topic of honesty and goes forth to discipline the child in school as well as contact her parent at home to make them aware of the situation and to recommend they generously speak to their student so that the behavior is not repeated again. In this paper I look to explore the different levels of honesty and evaluate if it is as black and white as it seems. When is it Lying According to Merriam-Webster the definition of honesty is: 1. The quality or fact of being honest; uprightness and fairness. 2. Truthfulness, sincerity or frankness. 3. Freedom from deceit or fraud. The commitment required to realize these simple terms is more clearly implied in a second definition, drawn from Funk & Wagnails Standard Handbook of Synonyms, Antonyms and Prepositions: "One who is......

...Academic Honesty Academic honesty is among one of the topics that seems all people knows about it.However,most of us merely know it by words,and regard it as something quite theorectical,as a consequence,the majority pay little attention to the issue.While actually,academic honesty is everywhere in our life as a college student and we may find out that we ourselves cannot meet the severe standards of acedemic honesty. To start with the discussion,we should first of all have a well-rounded understanding of academic honesty.Academic dishonesty or academic misconduct is any type of cheating that occurs in relation to a formal academic exercise,which includes plagiarism,fabrication,deception,cheating, bribery, sabotage, frofessorial misconduct, personation,etc.[1] At the present time,academic honesty should be attached to great importance for the fundamental reason that it is such a rare quality among the academic world,especially in colleges.For instance,in almost every college nowadays,students accomplish their essays or homework by simply copying and pasting the entire passage they found from baidu or google,and for students who are looking forward to a higher grade,they tend to read a few dozens of essay focused on the particular topic and then they make their own one by picking some useful parts from different eaasys,add a few original ideas and piece them together.Whenever you step into a test room,there is a possibility finding some test takers cheating.Even......

...In boys, depression was a stronger predictor than it was in girls. They highlight the need for further research on emotional expression in boys and men, especially using qualitative techniques that can shed light on the parameters of “acceptable” crying and the extent to which depression may disrupt or subvert these display rules. (Santiago-Menendez et al,. 2013). According to Frey's research, when men cry 73% of the time, tears do not fall down their cheeks. Men may get misty-eyed, but teardrops don't give way. Also scientists and sociologists both say that women are more inclined than men to feel the urge to cry when they are frustrated. A recent Penn State study found that participants considered a man’s tears to be a sign of honesty while a woman’s tears showed emotional weakness. In both sexes, a delicate misting of the eye was more acceptable than crying (Vosilla, 2005). We are constantly being told that men are becoming more emotionally open, that the old taboos on men crying have been eroded, and it is now perfectly normal and acceptable for a man to be seen shedding tears. (Fox, 2004) It's OK for big boys to cry. Our national survey found that 90% of women and 77% of men think it has become more socially acceptable, over the past 20 years, for men to be seen crying. (Fox, 2004) The majority of both men and women felt that attitudes had changed – that the taboo on male tears is now generally regarded as outdated and 'unhealthy', and that......

Honesty in Othello

...No matter what someone has achieved in their lifetime, honesty triumphs over all. Being known as someone who is honest is an honor, most of the time. Honesty is a reoccurring theme in many novels and plays. However, in the play, “Othello” by William Shakespeare, honesty works hand in hand with irony. The word itself, “honest” shows up repeatedly throughout the play. The word “honesty” is ironic and works to deconstruct the play and is mostly untruthful when used in the play. It is used to make the reader aware of a character’s true personality, not the personality that the other characters see in the play. The most common usage of the words honest and honesty throughout the play are in regards to Iago. Iago uses his reputation as an honest man, to manipulate the ones around him and watch them suffer. Othello considers him to be “Honest Iago” (I.iii.290). Each character describes him as truthful, trustworthy, honest and full of love. Iago states, “O wretched fool, that lov’st make thine honesty a vice!” (III.iii.385). He says that being honest can be harmful and those who are honest are fools. By saying his, he is referring to himself as a fool. When he says, “I’ll love no friends sith love breeds such offence,” he portrays himself as someone loyal who would never lie to anyone, especially not Othello, someone of a military rank (III.iii). However, this is dramatic irony because the reader knows that Iago is in fact a villain, and becomes frustrated with the ignorance of......

...Oklahoma State University Oklahoma City, Oklahoma Honesty Submitted to Dr. Robinson In partial fulfillment of the requirements for name of police science course PLSC 1113 It was my sister who taught me the meaning of honesty. Not because she actually was honest, but because she lied all the time. I think she felt that the easiest way out of any given situation was generally being completely dishonest. For her, that meant telling a lie that sounded believable. As a young child I thought it was cool to lie and get out of things so easily and being around my sister was the main problem. Naturally, whenever I would come to her with a problem, concern, or a question wondering what I should do, she would always tell me a well made up lie and run with it like the truth. Prior to the lecture I thought the meaning or definition of “Honesty” was like truth, not lying or doing the opposite thing you have told someone that you will do. I like many other people, believed honesty was just another word for truth. If people knew the true meaning and lived the true meaning of honesty there would be a lot less corruption in the government and community. The definition from Dr. Robinsons PowerPoint (Robinson, PowerPoint Honesty, 2014) is far from what a lot of people though. Dr. Robinson states “It is wrong to take the property of others without their consent, or to get any advantage from them by deception to concealment, or any false contrivance (plan or scheme). He who does......

Reed Publication Date: 2009 Peer Review: Yes Database site: Gale Power Online academic honesty related issues in this article were based on moral values, organizational and structural elements. In other words, the foundation of cheating is easily there. Why not cheat? There are various norms that are practices by people to state what they believe is cheating. For instance, sharing test answers or helping someone on a paper does not constitute as cheating. To some students, still having to know the assignment and understand what the assignment were and what the professor intended for them to learn. Instead the articles pulls out that some professors way of teaching is sometimes the reasons. As stated, the author states that if the student do not have assignments that are worth learning from the professor he or she feels they need to do what it takes to get the assignments done or get a good grade. I feel that the practices listed in the article are very good steps to avoid academic honesty. In the instructor position, there are online tool for checking plagiarism.

Academic Honesty

...The main focus of this article was on two different types of cheating. The 2 types were planned cheating and the panic cheating; they compared and tested both in online learning and Traditional classroom setting. They also listed the differences between the online classroom and the traditional classroom. The steps one would take to prevent planned cheating are to have more confidence in oneself when writing papers, also having enough time to complete the assignments on time. As for steps for the panic cheating it was concluded that this form of cheating did exist in online learning as this practice is more reserved for the classroom setting For the second article I used academic honesty as the keyword in my article search. The title of the second article was: The culture of cheating: from the classroom to the exam room. The authors were Danielsen RD; Simon AF; Pavlick R. This article was published in March of 2006. No there was not a peer-review done on the paper. I found this article using the EBSCOhost database The focus of this article is on all different types of cheating. To list a few of the different types: Copying from another student during an examination, copying a paper from a file or from a purchased paper and presenting it as original work, asking another student for the answers to an examination question, purchasing or receiving notes from a fellow student and using material from another student's paper without giving bibliographic credit.

Honesty

...Honesty Essay Honesty is a very abstract word. It is defined by the Merriam-Webster dictionary as “adherence to the facts; refusal to lie, steal or deceive in any way.” But, what does ‘honesty’ exactly mean? Some would say that honesty means not telling lies, not committing crimes or living a life according to what law says. To be honest, it is a manifestation of the truth, and the facts behind are just a consequence of being honest. In a simple way, honesty is not only to tell the truth, but also to live the truth. Prior to taking this course I had the notion honesty was something that was done to keep one out of trouble. Growing up my parents would always tell me honesty is the policy and truth will set your free. I believe it is hard for any child to be completely honest due to fear of the repercussions of their actions. Honesty is a virtue that should be taught to all children to ensure that they will grow up and be honest productive members of society. According to (Dr. Robinson, 2015) It is wrong to take the property of others without their consent, or to get any advantage from them by deception to concealment, or any false contrivance (plan or scheme). He who does this, or attempts to do it, or even desires to do it, is not honest. This course has taught me that honesty and truth go hand in hand. I try and stay true to my morals and be honest and tell the truth in every aspect of my life. In a person relationship it is definitely important to be honest with each......

Art and Honesty

...Art and honesty have a relation when both subjects occur within expression and religion. Many people feel that art has no importance throughout people’s daily lives. Those that don't understand the concept and advantage of art complain and say that art has no significance. Not everyone understands that people remain surrounded by art. Also, art has an intelligence level for people that involve themselves in the field, such as, musical arts, theatrical arts, or just art itself. Grace Hwang Lynch in her article, “The Importance of Art in Child Development” on Pbs.org, speaks about the advantage art has on children that can improve their (the children) learning skills. Brian Kisida, Jay P. Greene, and Daniel H. Bowan in their article, “Art Makes You Smart” on Nytimes.com, mentions how the three paired with an art museum, “testing” and studying students (with consent) visiting the museum and asking about their knowledge on art. Fran Smith’s article, “Why Arts Education is Crucial, and Who’s Doing It Best” on Edutopia.org speaks about how art can apply to educational benefits for students to expand their potential. Honesty holds an important quality in life. Honesty means being truthful about a person instead of starting rumours. Being honest means admitting to lying about something, no matter how stupid, like a little boy forgetting to flush the toilet when clearly, the little boy was the last one to use the bathroom. Linda and Charlie Bloom in their article “The Cost and......

Academdic Honesty

...Assignment – Academic Honesty Week 4 In researching academic honesty through the University Library I was able to locate two sources which contained valuable information regarding my research. The first article was searched using the key words “online academic dishonesty” and was conducted in the EBSCO Discovery Service. The title of the first article is “Rural Education Perspective. Rural Special Education Quarterly” the article was written in 2008 and its authors are, Sileo, J. M., & Sileo, T. W. The second article used for my research was found when searching with key words “online academic honesty” and was conducted also in the EBSCO Discovery Service. The title of the second article is “Monitoring Help Ensure Academic Honesty”, which was written in 2005 by Online Classroom, 1-3. From information contained in these two articles came specific items at concern for academic honesty in an online or distance learning environment. One issue that was consistent for online the distance learning environment is using internet term paper websites to download or purchase papers, plagiarism in its most extreme form. The best remedy for this would be a good software detection program such as the University’s Plagiarism Checker program. This can catch all kinds of used data as long as they have been used before. Another issue could be since connected to distance learning and academic honesty is the availability for students to communicate during exams and quizzes.......
