Term Paper
This is due on paper by the end of class. The 35 points available on the term paper
will be awarded as follows:
3= Paper is 8+ pages, including the title page (-1 per page short)
1= Your abstract outlines what you will write
1= Your introduction states what you will show (the abstract, reworded)
2= Your introduction outlines the structure of your paper
3= You identify the ethical actor. I will not go looking for this. I will look exclusively and only in a section entitled “ethical actor” or something similar. If you do
not have such a separate section your grade for this part will be 0. This grade is all
or nothing – if I find some content that identifies an ethical actor, you get all of
these points.
3= You specify the action being tested for ethics. I will not impute this from your
paper. I will read the section entitled “ethical action” or something similar, and assign this grade only on words found in that section. If you do not have such a separate section your grade for this part will be 0. This grade is all or nothing – if I find
some content that identifies an ethical action, you get all of these points.
4= You select your ethical test (the golden rule, the strokes of brilliance of Donald
Trump or George W. Bush, etc. are not ethical tests, and you will lose these points
if you suggest that they are. Kantian/Utilitarianism/ACM/Cowboy Code/The
Class’ are ethical tests. You will not lose points if you select these). Laws, sets of
laws, constitutions, and such are also not ethical standards. Nor are tests you find
on the internet that call themselves ethical standards, but that do not meet our requirements of specific and objective rules that are enforced disproportionately to
produce a good for a group that leads to the good of society. I will not impute your
choice. I will read the section entitled “ethical standard” orsomething similar, and
assign this gradeonly on words found in that section. If you do not have such a
separate section your grade forthis part will be 0. This grade is all or nothing – if I
find some content that identifies an ethical standard, you get all of these points.
5= You give the specific provisions of the test that you are applying. Hint: If you
can’t give specifics of the ethical system you are applying, it may not be an ethical
system. Also: It is perfectly possible to lose these points, AND the points above,
if you select an ethical system that isn’t an ethical system. When in doubt, ACM. I
will notimpute your provisions. I will read thesection entitled “specific provisions
of the ethical standard” orsomething similar, and assign this gradeonly on words
found in that section. If you do not have such a separate section your grade forthis
part will be 0. This grade is all or nothing – if I find some content that identifies an
specific provisions of an ethical standard, you get all of these points.
6= Connect the action you specified with the provisions of the test you specified.
You will have words from the action, above, and the specifics of the test, above, in
this section. If you don’t have words from both of the above, and some connection
between them, you will not get these points. Merely having them in the same 8
page paper will not be enough. I will not impute your analysis. I will read thesections entitled “analysis – ethical” and “analysis – unethical” or something similar,
and assign this grade only on words found in that section/those sections. If you do
not have such separate sections your grade for this part will be 0. This grade is all
or nothing – if I find some content that connects actions to an ethical standard, you
get all of these points.
5= Argue that the ethical test is satisfied, ie, pro ethical AND argue that the ethical
test is failed, ie, con ethical. I will not impute your analysis. I will read thesections entitled “analysis – ethical” and “analysis – unethical” or something similar,
and assign this grade only on words found in that section. If you do not have such
separate sections your grade forthis part will be 0. This grade is all or nothing – if I
find both content that argues for a satisfied ethical test, and content that argues for
an ethical test that is not satisfied, you get all of these points.
2= Conclusion: Restate your abstract yet again.
I will apply an additional penalty of 25 points if the subject does not require a computer (euthanasia, for example). This penalty cannot reduce your grade below 0.
If I approved a subject, and you are using that subject, you cannot be penalized in
this fashion.

Abstract
This is a very brief synopsis of the entire paper, stating what the issue is
and some idea of the approach or analysis used. You may also wish to
state what the paper intends to show. The abstract will be a single
paragraph.

Title of the Paper
1 INTRODUCTION
This is the start of the paper. The first paragraph should briefly introduce the problem or
issues, without too much detail. Briefly state what this paper intends to show. All except the title
and abstract should be double-spaced, as shown in this format sample. Margins are 1” on all
sides. Add a page header as shown. First page number should be 3 (since title and abstract pages
do not display the header). Use fonts and font sizes exactly as shown in this document.
Paragraph two should outline the structure of the paper, in a fashion similar to this. This
paper is organized as follows. Section 2 presents a description of the problem or issue, Section 3
discusses…, and Section presents conclusions. This part of the paper should be only one or
two paragraphs long. Generally, two paragraphs is sufficient for the introduction.
2. BACKGROUND AND SIGNIFICANCE (or whatever is appropriate for your topic)
Major section numbers should then commence, using the heading formats shown below.
Any figures or charts should be small in size, and may not be counted in the page count. They
should be labeled “Figure a.b” where a represents the section number, and b represents the
sequential numbering of figures within that section. In general, papers for this course should not
have figures or charts.
2.1 Section subheading
You must have a minimum of five separate references, from different sources (i.e., do not
use five web pages from the same web site). References must be done in APA style, and should
start on new page. Each reference is double-spaced and formatted as shown at the end of this
format document. References should appear in the References section in the order in which they

CGS 3092 Section U0X – Fall 2011
2
are used in the body of the paper [1], not alphabetically. Inline citations should use reference
document numbers instead of author names [2]. An easy way to get the References format
correct is to use the Citation Machine web site to build your references, located at
http://citationmachine.net/index.php?new_style=2&reset=1#here On the left of this page, under
APA, select the type of reference (journal, book, etc.). Then enter the information on the right
side, and let this web site build the correct reference format, which can then be copied and pasted
into the References section. Build the references as you write the paper, so that you will not
have to go back and determine the source of the material in your paper.
Web-based references are permissible, but should be solid articles, not blogs, forum
posts, or multimedia links (unless absolutely central to your topic). Do not use Wikipedia, Yahoo
Answers, or other non-academic encyclopedias or answer sites. Dictionaries do not count as one
of your five references. If the web article is from a newspaper for journal site, treat the article as
if it is a print reference. If you have problems determining how to cite a source, contact the
instructor for assistance.
Minimum page count for this assignment is 8 full pages double-spaced, including
references, title page and abstract, and blank pages you choose to put in the middle of your
paper.
A research paper should never use first person (I, me, my) or second person (you, yours).
Only third person should be used. It should not have a chatty tone as might be found in a
magazine column, but should be a formal, educational tone. Do not use questions or
contractions. Do not use bulleted or numbered lists. Your goal is to inform the reader about the
ethical issue, give him/her an in-depth understanding, and then present conclusions. The paper

should have minimal “what is” or “how to”, because this paper’s audience is technologically
savvy, and the paper’s goal is to do an ethical analysis.
Make frequent backups of the paper as you work on it. You may choose to leave the
formatting details until the very end, but plan at least an hour or two to get the formatting correct.
Remember to use the Undo button when Word does not understand what you intended for it to
do.
Anti-plagiarism software will be used to check your paper, and all references will be also
be checked for accuracy. Simply changing a few words in each sentence and adding a citation is
not acceptable – it is plagiarism. You are expected to read and understand the material, and be
able to express it in your own words. When you do so, you will still use a citation to give credit
to the original author of the material. Plagiarism will result in heavy penalties. For more detailed

3.6 Comparison of Actions with Specific Provisions: Unethical
And now… READ THE RUBRIC
Remember that the purpose of your paper is to do an ethical analysis of all sides of the
issue. Give a one or two sentence description of the ethical theory approach(es) that will be used.
Then show how using this ethical theory approach can lead to a conclusion that the issue is
ethical or unethical. The ethical analysis may be a separate section, or it may be woven into the
analysis as the various aspects of the issue are presented. If the paper does not use an ethical
theory and do an analysis of the issue, the paper will not earn a passing grade.

N. CONCLUSIONS (substitute the appropriate section number for N)
Paragraphs() which summarizes the paper. The paper must have concluded that the action
of the actor is ethical, and that it is not ethical, referring to the ethical standard. This section
simply recaps what has been presented in the paper.
