Prepineer goes above and beyond to help you not just pass a class or prepare for your engineering exams, but expand your education and career growth by connecting you with new topics, concepts, ideas, educators and students. We are dedicated to providing high quality academic resources to help you learn more effectively, and we are equally committed to ensuring proper usage and protecting ownership of those resources.
While we believe that the majority of Prepineer members use the site in the manner in which it was intended, we ask that all users upon registration confirm that they have read, understand, and agree to comply with Prepineer’s Honor Code. By joining Prepineer, users agree to the following:
We expect our users to act with academic integrity. Therefore, anyone who misuses our site for the express purpose of cheating and/or claiming another user’s content as their own will be met with appropriate action. “Misuse of our site” includes, but is not limited to:
- Copying solutions directly from Prepineer resources and submitting them as your own
- Using Prepineer study materials complete tests or homework assignments when instructed not to use outside help
- Using Prepineer in any manner that violates your instructor or institution’s academic Honor Code
- Violating the NCEES Nondisclosure Agreement, which includes, but is not limited to, not disclosing, publishing, reproducing, or transmitting, in whole or in part, in any form or by any means, oral or written, electronic or mechanical, for any purpose, without the prior express written permission of NCEES. This includes agreeing not to post or disclose any test questions or answer from the FE or PE exam, in whole or in part, on any websites, online forums, or chat rooms, or in any other electronic transmissions. Reference the complete statement and ensure you are in full agreement with the standards at this link: http://cdn3.ncees.co/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/NCEES-Examinee-Guide-04-14.pdf
Cheating is ill advised for several of reasons:
First, by stealing someone else’s ideas, you’re not bothering to learn the material yourself. You’ve shelled out a handsome sum in tuition, and cheating only erodes the value of the education in which you’ve invested.
Second, you will likely get caught. Many institutions leverage sophisticated technologies to scan for plagiarized material in student submitted work. We are an online database, and therefore Prepineer materials are often crawled by these content monitoring tools. We’re even going out of our way to make sure that they are.
Third, the consequences are severe, and for many institutions convictions of academic dishonesty can result in probation, suspension or even expulsion.
We welcome suggestions and feedback on how we can improve our Honor Code. Please email us your ideas at [email protected].
