We will be using special software to check for cheating. The software is quite sophisticated and has "surprised" some students in the past. We will, of course, not release the details of the internal workings of this cheat-checking software, but you are forewarned that there is no difficulty in comparing every pair of submitted projects --- even for projects submitted to other sections of this course.
Your project will be checked for similarities with all other student projects. If your project is found to be "substantially similar" to that of another student, both you and the other student will receive a grade of 0 for that project AND have your final course grade reduced by one full letter grade. All parties concerned will have their prior projects checked for cheating. A second incident will result in a grade of 'F' for the semester.
In addition, each lecturer may require a student in his or her section, who has turned in a project which is too similar to that of another student, to write that project again for no credit. Failure to do so will result in a grade of F for the course.
Any act of dishonesty may be reported to the University's Academic Misconduct Committee for further action. Egregious cases of cheating will be written up as a "more serious" infraction. In this case, you will not be allowed to drop the course. Also, a "more serious" infraction would appear as a permanent part of your student record and would be seen by potential employers when they ask for an official copy of your transcript.
