Re: “Cracks in the code

Our jobs are also to pass our classes and ensure our other military duties within our squadron get done. You're telling me you've never been super swamped at your jobbed and pencil whipped a less important task that was added on to your pile of stuff to do.

If not I would love to have your job, that or you must be one of those people that thinks tps cover sheets are really important...

Re: “Cracks in the code

Just an interesting question I would like to propose. Does an increase in found honor code violations really indicate a failing of the system?

If graduates consistently report higher numbers of getting away with violations than were convicted, wouldn't a rise in convicted violations imply the system is doing a better job at rooting out and holding those individuals accountable?

Further you have the problem of what do you define as an honor code violation? It's not as easy as everyone likes to pretend. here's a perfect example:

I am working on an individual effort stats project and as part of the project I must calculate the standard deviation of a population, however, I am struggling to understand the concept. As a result I ask a classmate to explain the concept to me. I don't ask him anything about the project and make sure that I don't use anything resembling the project.

Violation? The classmate helped me understand a class concept, I asked him the same questions I would if I was studying for a test instead of doing the project but his help directly benefited me on the project.

I think you will find people have vary different opinions on that example. SO is the increase in self reported "yeah I got away with it" a result in the narrowing of the definition and as a result there is really an increase in integrity or is there actual moral degradation?

I don't know either way just pointing out that this isn't a black and white issue
