Abstract:

The sabotaged programs given as input to Accuse show that it cannot stand alone as a detector of plagiarism, but must in fact be part of the larger system. This system should be one that retrieves the students program, compiles it, runs on data the student has never seen, and then sends the students program into a file that will eventually be processed through Accuse. Accuse accomplished its goal of being inexpensive to use. Results were actually better than expected. Finally, Accuse needs to be put into production use to verify or reject assertions made here.
