Mehran Sahami Handout #4 CS 106A September 26, 2011 Computer Science and the Stanford Honor Code Based on a handout by Eric Roberts Since 1921, academic conduct for students at Stanford has been governed by the Honor Code, which reads as follows: THE STANFORD UNIVERSITY HONOR CODE A. The Honor Code is an undertaking of the students, individually and collectively: (1) that they will not give or receive aid in examinations; that they will not give or receive unpermitted aid in class work, in the preparation of reports, or in any other work that is to be used by the instructor as the basis of grading; (2) that they will do their share and take an active part in seeing to it that others as well as themselves uphold the spirit and letter of the Honor Code.

The faculty will also avoid as far as practicable, academic procedures that create temptations to violate the Honor Code. C. While the faculty alone has the right and obligation to set academic requirements, the students and faculty will work together to establish optimal conditions for honorable academic work. In the Computer Science Department, we take the Honor Code seriously and expect you to do the same. The good news is that the vast majority of you will do so. The bad news is that all historical evidence indicates that some students in computer science will submit work that is not their own, shortchanging not only their own learning but undermining the atmosphere of trust and individual achievement that characterizes Stanford’s academic community. Each year, the Computer Science Department accounts for somewhere between 20 and 60 percent of all Honor Code cases, even though our courses represent less than 15 percent of the student enrollment. The purpose of this handout is to make our expectations as clear as possible in the hope
