Information for Learners

Academic honesty and integrity are fundamental to CDISC's education mission. As stated in COP-005, CDISC has a responsibility to promote academic integrity in all authorized trainings. Students are responsible for the honest completion and representation of their work. Any academic misconduct will constitute dismissal of the attendee from the learning event without refund of fees and with annulment of any awarded CEUs. Academic misconduct is an act in which a student:

  • Seeks to claim credit for the work or efforts of another without authorization or citation;
  • Forges or falsifies academic documents or records;
  • Engages in conduct aimed at making false representation of a student's academic performance; or
  • Assists other students in any of these acts.
  • Examples of academic misconduct include, but are not limited to:
    • cheating on an examination;
    • collaborating with others in work to be presented, contrary to the stated rules of the course;
    • submitting an assignment as one's own work when a part or all of the paper or assignment is the work of another;
    • submitting an assignment that contains ideas or research of others without appropriately identifying the sources of those ideas;
    • stealing examinations or course materials;
    • submitting, if contrary to the rules of a course, work previously presented in another course;
    • knowingly and intentionally assisting another student in any of the above.

All opinions and experiences, no matter how different or controversial they may be perceived, must be respected in the tolerant spirit of academic discourse. Students are encouraged to comment, question, or critique an idea but are not to attack an individual or disrupt the instructional framework of the learning event. The following guidelines describe appropriate behaviors to establish a positive, collaborative and effective learning environment:

  • Do not disrupt the instructor during instruction with off-topic questions or comments.
  • Do not dominate any discussion.
  • Give other students the opportunity to join in the discussion.
  • Do not use offensive language.
  • Present ideas appropriately and without judgement.
  • Keep an open mind and be willing to express even your minority opinion. Minority opinions have to be respected.
  • Do not hesitate to ask for positive and constructive feedback when it is appropriate.
  • Give assistance to other students when it is allowed by the instructor.

    1. Formula for Calculation
      1. One CEU represents 10 learning contact hours, truncated to one decimal place.
      2. Example 1: a course that has 17 hours of allowable learning contact time yields 17 / 10 = 1.7 CEUs.  

      3. Example 2: a course has 15 hours of total contact time, of which 3.75 hours are not allowable yields 15 - 3.75 = 11.25 allowable hours; 11.25 / 10 = 1.125, which is truncated to 1.1 CEUs.      

  2. Activities that Qualify for CEUs - Activities that include a mechanism for assessing the learner’s achievement are eligible for CEUs.  Examples are: 
    1. INSTRUCTOR-LED - Classroom and online learning events led by instructor and/or qualified discussion leader; these may be real-time or asynchronous

  3. Activities that do Not Qualify for CEUs - The following activities are not eligible for awarding CEUs.   
    1. BREAKS - Time periods during training that are not planned learning, such as breaks, lunch, discussions about non-class subjects
