Academic integrity guidelines for CSE 167, Fall 2004,
Instructor: Sam Buss
Programming projects are individual projects. One exception to
this is that the final projects can be joint if (a) you get approval from Prof.
Buss ahead of time, and (b) the duties can be split among the member of the
project team in such a way that each team member is working on an independent
portion of the code. The latter restriction is to establish accountability
for grading purposes, and to ensure that each member of the project team has well
- You are expected to do your own work, program your own projects, and
understand all aspects of your program.
- You may seek information and help from fellow students, TA, the
instructor, outside books, resources on the internet, etc.
- Fellow students or friends may help you debug your code, suggest fixes,
etc. For debugging, you must debug the code yourself while your helper
makes suggestions looking over your shoulder. If your helper suggests
fixes, you must understand them and you must type them yourself.
- It is acceptable to get this kind of help (#3) on localized parts of your
code. This should not be used for large portions of your code.
- Any kind of help from TAs or the instructor is permitted.
- For resources such as books or web pages; you may not pass of other's
work as your own. Significant help from such resources should be
acknowledged by inserting comments in your code, AND discussing it with the TA
during the grading session. Again, this kind of help from these
resources should only provide localized parts of your code; it should not be
used for large portions of your code. If the help from these resources
is too substantial, it is not allowed.
- Completely disallowed: turning in other's work as your own, copying
other student's code, borrowing substantial pieces of code from any source.
Consequences of willful violations of the above guidelines are likely to be
as severe as is allowed and reasonable, quite possibly including referral to the
