over time as we learn and reflect on what is right or wrong. Academic integrity is being honest and responsible in the
academic realm. Consider the Chapter Three reading and respond to the prompts below:

I remember one time I had to use moral judgment. I had gone to the bank one time to cash a
check through the drive through. I was 23 at the time and I was a server. My pay checks were
never over $30 or $40 so when I cashed my check I was handed back a thick envelope. I knew
there was way too much money in there to cover my small check. So pulled up and opened the
envelope and there was all $100 bills inside. I don’t how much was in there but it was a lot. That
was when my moral judgment kicked in. I will be honest it was very tempting but I just couldn’t
keep it. I thought the teller probably would have lost her job and I didn’t want that on my
shoulders. So I went back through the drive thru and turned it back in. The teller was so grateful
and it made me feel good. I believe I was starting to use critical thinking according to what the
psychologists say, “Being able to integrate emotion and logic is a critical step toward adult
thinking” (Witt and Mossler).
I would still make the same decision rather I was younger or older. I am an honest person
because I believe in that saying, “What comes around goes around”. Levinson’s stage theories
states, there is an underlying order of development, leading us through stages, each with its own
goals and difficulties to overcome. In each stage, we must first learn what to do and how to do it;
then we master those skills, making us more comfortable in that stage. Academic integrity goes
right along with what I am talking about. Academic integrity to me means being honest when
doing all of your work and not copying somebody else’s. It also means to trust, fairness, respect,
and responsibility.
