        • Code of Conduct

          As a student of Saylor Academy, I agree to the Code of Conduct:

          • I will make only one account. I will be the only user of that account.
          • I will not share final exam questions.
          • I will not share my answers with anyone else unless the assignment asks me to collaborate with others.
          • I will not copy anyone else's work. I will not use anyone else’s text or ideas in any of my own work, including my answers, without saying where I found them or naming that person. That is plagiarism.
          • I will be respectful and courteous to other members of the Saylor Academy community.
          • I will follow the Terms of Use, Privacy Policy, and Student Handbook.

            Learn more about our different types of partners in this unit.

          • Unit 3: Plagiarism and Conduct

            Plagiarism is using anyone else's work, words, or ideas and not naming that person. Some examples of plagiarism are copying someone else's exam answers, taking words or ideas from a webpage without including the name of the author or webpage, or giving the wrong information about where a source came from. Even if you change a few words, if the work is mostly the same, it is still plagiarism!

            Please do not plagiarize. It may be easier to copy someone else's work, but it won't help you learn!

            • Final Exam

              To complete a course and earn a certificate of completion you need to pass the Certificate Final Exam for that course.

              For this Saylor001 course, there is not a certificate of completion, but you can still take the very short (one question!) exam to see how exams work and to complete this course. Just click the link below:
