Computer Ethics in Programming
Introduction To Computer Programming
You will start by visiting the following two Internet web sites for professional organizations in Computer Programming. The first is the Association of Computing Professionals at: http://www.acm.org/constitution/code.html. The second site is a professional engineering association, IEEE located at: http://www.ieee.org/about/whatis/code.html. Read (and print out) carefully the code of ethics and professional conduct pages at these sites. (If these links are no longer valid, start at: http://www.ieee.org and http://www.acm.org and search for their code of ethics.)
Your job is to read the information carefully, and write a two page typed or word-processed SUMMARY of the code of ethics at these two sites.
This paper is to be a summary of information pertaining to computer ethics at these two sites. It is NOT a paper to include your personal feelings or philosophies about computer ethics. It is strictly a summary of the ideas found at the above-mentioned web pages.
It needs to be typed or word
processed, two full pages, one and a half spacing (not single spaced or double
spaced), Times New Roman Font size 12, with one inch margins at the Top, Bottom,
Left, and Right. Include your name
and I.D. number at the top of page one as well as the title of the paper.
Don’t forget to properly cite your references, which are the URL’s
listed above. If you aren’t sure
how to cite your sources, take a virtual trip to the LCHS
Library (IRC) and click on the link for MLA Format.
Do not copy and paste any text from either web page, you are to summarize
these pages in your own words. Be
sure to attach copies of both codes of ethics to your summary.
You will also need to submit this paper to TurnItIn.com in addition to your paper copy. The Class ID# is: ????? and the enrollment password is: ?????. The assignment is called “Computer Ethics Summary”. If you are new to TurnItIn.com, click on this link and take the student quick tour.
