 Quiz Question #18

Value: 1
Connie was accused of receiving assistance on a take-home test
from an unsuspecting tutor in the Academic Support Center.
  Connie had made a copy of the test without the header at the top
which read "Take-Home Test – You may not receive help on this
test."  When a second student brought in the same take-home test
with the header at the top, the tutor reported the incident to his
supervisor.  Because the Academic Support Center staff and
Connie could not reach an agreement about the consequences of
Connie's actions, a Student Judiciary Committee Hearing was
held.  Before the hearing, Connie asked her friend, Gertrude, to
state that the instructor gave different instructions verbally.  To help
her friend, Gertrude told the committee that the instructor said to
disregard what the take-home test said at the top.  In fact, they
could get help on the work.
