The Challenge of Plagiarism in Programming Classes
While plagiarism is a challenge in all subjects, it is an especially stubborn problem with programming classes. Programming assignments quickly frustrate students. They are often tempted to take the easy way out by copying a file. This panel discussion will focus on the following topics: Why plagiarism is a problem, How to recognize plagiarism, Can you limit plagiarism, Official school policies on plagiarism. The panelists will discuss these issues based on personal experience grappling with this most difficult issue. Discussion and questions from the audience will be encouraged to solicit ideas on how instructors and schools can manage this problem.
