I teach a couple of classes at a midwestern university. Here's a copy of an email I sent to one of the classes today.

Greetings:

This message is to all persons enrolled in XXXX this semester.

After class today, someone turned in a late submission for Homework 3. I think I know who it was, but I'm not certain. Until that person comes forward and accepts a zero for the assignment, no one will be receiving credit for the assignment. The offending party will receive a zero, ultimately, for two reasons. First, homework is due at the beginning of class. Second, I purposely put the "To Be Graded" folder away, and the person rifled through my personal property to get to the folder.

If you need to turn in homework late, speak to me directly, and we can generally work something out if it's an unusual circumstance. Try to be sneaky or deceptive about it, though, and you've guaranteed yourself a zero. As it stands - and you know who you are - you've put your classmates in a position to get a zero for their hard work that was turned in on time. Your classmates and I are counting on you to step up to accept responsibility for your actions.

I trust that this issue will be resolved immediately, and will not be repeated. If it is repeated, by anyone, it will be reported to the department as academic misconduct and dealt with accordingly.

Please contact me if you have any questions or comments regarding this message.

Best regards,
DzlBenz

Let the peer pressure begin!

Here's a copy of a message another professor, who was copied on the original email, sent to me:


You might check to see if Computing Services can show you the security video for the
time frame of interest.  That way, if the offending party doesn't step
forward you can punish them for that too.


I like it. I like it a lot.

Punish the students that worked hard because of the actions of another is not right.
How would you like to have criminal charges against you because another teacher was banging a student ?

Punishing the whole class is wrong and unfair. You are shifiting what should be your respondsiblilty onto the shoulders of those who should bear ZERO respondsibility. I would report you to the Dean and make a nice little website explaining how F'ed up my university was if it were me...

Punish the whole class for the actions of one?

College isn't the army. They are paying to get an eduction and if they have done their homework there is no reason to give them a zero.

There is no way in hell that his dept head would allow him to give the whole class a zero on the hw. Question is does the cheater amd anyone who saw him getting into the OP's shit know that it is an empty threat.

So the offending party knows that you're not sure. And if (s)he comes forward, you WILL know for sure. Either way that person will get a zero.

Why would that person step forward? They're getting a zero anyways. The Full Metal Jacket thing only works if everyone already knows who fucked up and then they can put pressure on that person.

Agreed. It's not going to teach the rest of the class a lesson because they actually turned their assignment(s) in on time. I'd be pissed if one of my professors did that in one of my classes. My grade should not suffer because someone else I more than likely don't know is a dumb ass.

First, it's not like he's ACTUALLY going to give everyone else a zero. As soon as he knows who it is, everyone else will get their grade.

Second, the dean most likely wouldn't care. (But, that can depend on the university).

Third, because there's often a lot of cheating (especially in undergraduate classes) on college campuses if faculty are not attentive (and use appropriate safeguards), it is very important that faculty send the clear message that they are attentive and care about upholding academic integrity. So while the "good" students may be slightly annoyed at the homework grades not being posted for a few days, many of them will appreciate that the instructor is not letting cheaters get away with it.








Maybe he isn't going to give a zero, but if thats the case he shouldn't threaten it. I wouldn't have a problem with him saying the grades wouldn't be posted right away, but stating that he would give them all a zero is bullshit.

I wouldn't be surprised if the dean didn't care either, but its worth a shot.

A lot of colleges/classes do. Everyone one of the 4 universities and 1 CC I've been to have given HW as some type of grade.....it merely depends on the class/instructor if they want it to count for grades or not.

If everyone is graded on a curve, then you're simply removing *one* assignment from the grading scheme. It's like the assignment didn't exist. They'll be graded on the rest of their work.

i can't say i'm a fan of the "fail everybody" scenario. i work my ass off in school (and i do it without cheating). i'd be fucking pissed, and justifiably so, if i was punished for someone else cheating. furthermore, the cheater now doesn't have any incentive to identify himself if he knows no one else saw him rifle through your stuff. he can just say "i dunno, wasn't me" and get away with it.

YEs I went to engineering school (and graduated!).

HW was at most 10% and often dropped if it hurt your grade for the basic classes like statics, dynamics, fluids, etc.
It was really easy to find someone with a solution key.

As you went up in classes to design classes or classes where basic book problems could not be given the hw had a higher percentage (20% or so)

Projects were something different as you can't cheat on them, you can only ride the coat tails so long....

It's very likely the offending student stuck around or came back in after everybody was gone to sneak the h/w into the pile.

So nobody would know, unless they happened to remember he or she was the last one to leave, or saw him walk back in. But that's still not eyewitness proof unless they saw it happen directly or by the chance he told his buddies what he did.

Back when I was in college, the big thing was for people to get into study groups and copy off the one smart person.

First you say that it's obviously a bluff. Then you say that college kids will be so convinced and scared of it (specifically, getting one insignificant zero that doesn't change the curve), that they'll turn in their buddy, assuming they even know who did it?

No, this doesn't make any sense. It's very poor leadership. The OP's fucked up and backed himself into a corner, and every kid in his class knows it. And doing it over email instead of in the next class? That's just pussy.

I may be wrong, but we'll judge that by his updates.

I got out of the military specifically to avoid shit like that. If one of my professors did that, I would have a very difficult time not publicly calling them out on that, because I'm sure the other students in the room will feel the same way.

Either way, your class, your rules.
