Protect Your Own Work 

Some students are reported for cheating because someone else cheated off of them! So, to prevent cheating, you need to protect your own work by:

  • refusing to distribute your assignments and exams to others - whether in person or online
  • protecting your exam answers from the view of your neighbors
  • not lending your computer or thumbdrive to your friends, unless your work is password protected
  • not leaving your computer, assignments or exams unattended so that others can access it without your permission
  • telling a professor or TA if you think a neighboring student is trying to cheat off of your exam
