It is the responsibility of each faculty member to exercise every possible precaution in the preparation and care of all quizzes and examinations and in their administration. The faculty member can reduce to a minimum the cheating in class by being aware and observant. Administering the same test or examination semester after semester is encouragement for students to cheat. See Chapter 2: Academic Affairs; Academic Honesty
