Abstract

In response to growing academic dishonesty in low- level computer science and electrical and computer engineering courses, we present extit{checksims}, a similarity detector designed to highlight suspicious assignments for instructor review. We report the design rationale for the software, and describe our detection of dozens of previously undetected cases of academic dishonesty in previous classes.
