Honesty

Describe the importance of honesty in your profession.  Be sure and include the Professional Association’s Ethical Statement of Honesty and an example in your profession where someone broke that code and an example where someone upheld it, even when it was difficult to be honest (you can use the book’s case studies). Be sure to reference all sources.

For your submission, you will need to provide your own thoughts on the assignment, but in third person.  Here is a guide to writing in third person as well as an excellent guide on mistakes to avoid in any type of writing.

 

Generally, you will use outside materials to support your point.  For instance, in this assignment, you obviously will be using a code of ethics as an outside source.  Whenever you use other materials, you need to either paraphrase that material or quote it.  However, you are not supposed to quote large chunks of the material.  Here are two guides on paraphrasing and quoting:

Also, when you use outside materials, you need to let the reader know what materials were used, so if they want to look up more information, they can.  This process of letting the reader know what materials are used involves two steps: citing and reference.  The citing is done inside the paper or PowerPoint slide and tells the reader which reference is used on the reference page or slide.  The reference is all the information the reader needs to go find that resource.

There are some standards which organizations and publishers use for referring to these materials so that what they publish is uniform.  For instance, the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) is a popular organization for computer science and information systems.  They have their own ‘style guide,’ which includes the standards for writing in that organization and for others in computer science.  The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) style guide is often used by electrical engineers.  The American Psychological Association (APA) style guide is a standard for the liberal arts.  Grantham, as a whole, uses this as the standard for all of their general education and many other courses.  In this class, you are free to use the ACM, IEEE, or APA way for referencing your materials.  Here are some links to show you how to cite and reference the materials in any of the three formats:

 

For your submission, choose ONE of the following ways to answer the above questions.

NOTE: In identifying the similarities and differences, you should provide at least a few sentences which explain each of the similarities or differences

  1. Write a one-to-two-page paper (not including title page or references, submit as a Word document).  Use Times New Roman or Calibri, font size 12, one-inch margins, double-spaced.  Don’t forget to cite inside the paper.  Be sure to include references at the end.
