In a course that bases much of the grade on homework, it is essential for each student to do their own work. I am going to use the definitions of Academic Honesty that Dr. Paul Spector of the University of South Florida uses for his SAS internet course. Each student is required to visit his Academic Dishonesty page at , and send me an email message acknowledging that you have read and understand the policy.

When submitting homework, send me an email message with 3 things:

  1. The code from the SAS editor window
  2. The text from the SAS log (up to a maximum of three pages)
  3. The text from the SAS output window

Put this text in the text of your email message - DO NOT send them as attachments.
