ing, with respect to the honor system.
The Michigan Technic suggested a
plan for a so-called honor system,
which plan has been printed on sep-
arate sheets, and distributed among all
the members of the college of engin-
eering. This plan proposes that each
student affix to his examination paper
the pledge that he has not cheated.
The plan provides for a discipline
committee, to deal with all criticisms
and complaints. But how is this com-
mittee to be informed regarding dis-
honesty? Is it the aim of the plan to
have the instructors or the students
themselves report any dishonesty they
have seen? The first plan is not likely
to succeed, as the instuctor is to be
absent from the examination room dur-
ing most of-the examination period,
and will not have much opportunity
of detecting dishonesty the few min-
utes he is present. The second plan
is surely not a feasible one, because
no student likes to report another.
What, then, is the plan for knowing
when a student has cheated? I can
think of only one possible solution:
that a student who has received help
will not sign a pledge to the contrary.
The objection to this is, that a student
who has been dishonest enough to
cheat, will be disbonest enough to say
that he has not received any help.
It is- my opinion that we are not
ready to adopt an honor system. We
must devise a way of approaching it
gradually, and not adopting it at once.
