We will report a case of suspected cheating to the Disciplinary Commitee for further investigation. In the worst case, this can lead to the student's exclusion from services such as lectures, computer rooms and exams. It involves a court-like proceedings and (for the teachers) lots of work and having to deal with lawyers. Please help us to avoid this by just being honest!
Here follow the rules of cooperation between students in this course.
Violating any of these rules might not be considered cheating by itself, but violating any of these rules without informing us is definitely considered cheating and, at discovery, will result in a report to the Chalmers or GU Disciplinary Committee.
- One is allowed to orally discuss exercises and programming assignments
with one another.
- For the programming assignments, one is allowed to work in
groups of size two. Once you have cooperated on an assignment with a
particular person, you must submit your answer to that assignment together
with that person, and can not cooperate with anyone else.
- Apart from with your own lab partner, you are not allowed to share
any piece of code with another student, by any means. Examples of ways which
you cannot use to share code are: e-mailing code, printing out your code and
giving it on paper, stealing other people's print-outs, faxing, dictating code
over the phone, copying files with or without permission, reading someone
else's email, reusing code from the web, etc.
Remember: it is equally wrong to give your code to another student as it is to use another student's code.
Exceptions to these rules may be granted, but only if you talk to the teachers as soon as the problem arises.
