Falsifying information with the goal of deception.
Li has a lab assignment that has been assigned as a group project. The due date for the assignment is approaching. However, Li’s group is unable to get lab results that are similar to what other groups in the course are getting. Li and his group members decide to make up data so that their results match the results of other groups. Li and his group are falsifying the results of their work, which is an academic offence.
