As you work on your Transcribing Exercise for this class, please keep in mind that UNH’s Academic Honesty Policy will be enforced. This policy includes out-of-class work: please note that copying another’s work (from a previous or the current semester) and submitting it as your own is considered to be academic misconduct (plagiarism/cheating), and will result in failure of the assignment or the course.
Your work will be evaluated by assessing the degree to which your transcript displays:
– an adequate grasp of the level of detail it is appropriate to capture,
– a substantial grasp of what the symbols are used to represent, and
– your own, individual best effort to hear and represent this stretch of talk (do not use anyone else’s transcript to inform your own; text matching detection will be used).
