this service is that it also archives the papers you submit, thus allowing

One note about disciplining students. At Michigan Tech, we are required to
submit any incidents of cheating to the Dean's office. At that point, the
Dean holds a hearing to determine the appropriate action. While giving a
student a zero on one assignment will prevent the occurrence in your class,
reporting it to the proper office prevents the student from cheating in
multiple classes.
