Collaboration and Academic (dis)honesty

Collaboration not only helps you get the job done, it teaches you how to explain your ideas to others. This is why we allow a limited form of discussion of the problems between students. It is not acceptable, however, to pool thoughts and produce common answers. To avoid this situation, we advise the students not to write notes during the discussions, but try to remember the basic ideas that should be later fully developed on their own.

Be careful not to let other people do all the work. If you abuse the opportunity for collaboration in this manner, you will do poorly in the course and fail the exams.

  • It is allowed to verbally collaborate on homework problems. On each problem and program that you hand-in, you must include the names of the students with whom you have had discussions concerning your solution. Indicate whether you gave help, received help, or worked something out together.
  • It is not allowed to
    • share written work with anyone else
    • receive help from students who have taken the course in previous years
    • review any course materials from previous years
    • look up the answer to a homework assignment which happens to appear in the published literature or on the web
  • Students who allow their assignments to be copied are as guilty of dishonesty as those who copy. Therefore, students are responsible to take reasonable precautions to ensure that their work is not available for unauthorized use
  • Academic dishonesty will be dealt accordingly to the UCR's and CSE's policies
