Scholastic Ethics
Students are expected to maintain high standards of academic honesty. The Disciplinary Committee will deal with breaches in scholastic ethics such as cheating.

  • Plagiarism will be suspected if an assignment that calls for independent development and implementation of a program results in two or more solutions so similar that one solution can be converted to the other(s) by a series of simple commands
  • Cheating will be suspected if a student who completed an assignment independently cannot explain both the intricacies of the solution and the techniques used to generate that solution

Examples of Cheating:

  • Turning in someone else's work, in whole or in part, as your own (with or without his/her knowledge)
  • Turning in a completely duplicated assignment is a °agrant o®ense
  • Allowing another student to turn in your work as his/her own
  • Several people writing one assignment and turning in multiple copies, all represented (implicitly or explicitly) as individual work

Examples of Not Cheating:

  • Turning in work done alone or with the help of the course's TAs.
  • Submitting one assignment for a group of students if group work is explicitly permitted (or required)
  • Getting or giving help about using the computers
  • Getting or giving help about solving minor syntax errors

Penalties for cheating can be an F in the course or worse.
