Ethical standards and principles of your career field

You will begin by researching the ethical standards and principles of your career field. Using those as a foundation, you will write a reflection paper discussing the incident you were involved in regarding Academic Integrity. Within this assignment, please reflect on the following:

What ethical standards does your chosen career field have? Why do they have these standards? Why are they important?

What are some of your personal values? Provide at least three values, and explain why each one is meaningful to you.

List some of your career goals.

Consider your goals and values. Are you acting in ways that show others what is important to you? Are you moving yourself towards your goals?

Feel free to add anything else that is coming up for you in this reflection.

This paper must be no less than 750 words in length (typed, double-spaced)


You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
