b. Unauthorized assistance—Giving or receiving assistance in connection with any examination or other academic work that has not been authorized by an instructor. During examinations, quizzes, lab work, and similar activities, students are to assume that any assistance (such as books, notes, calculators, and conversations with others) is unauthorized unless it has been specifically authorized by an instructor. Examples of prohibited behavior include, but are not limited to, the following when not authorized: 

i. Copying, or allowing another to copy, answers to an examination; 

ii. Transmitting or receiving, during an examination, information that is within the scope of the material to be covered by that examination (including transmission orally, in writing, by sign, electronic signal, or other manner); 

iii. Giving or receiving answers to an examination scheduled for a later time; 

iv. Completing for another, or allowing another to complete for you, all or part of an assignment (such as a paper, exercise, homework assignment, presentation, report, computer application, laboratory experiment, or computation); 

v. Submitting a group assignment, or allowing that assignment to be submitted, representing that the project is the work of all the members of the group when less than all of the group members assisted substantially in its preparation; 

vi. Unauthorized use of a programmable calculator or other electronic device.
