Dear 100 Hour Board,

I'm doing a paper in a class and it's really similar to a paper I did last semester. Would it technically be against the honor code to use parts of that paper in my paper for this semester? Would learning suite catch that?

Dear Only Cause of All The Other Papers,

Depending on whether your professor has TurnItIn installed on Learning Suite, using a previous paper will be caught. Whether you'll be penalized for that or not depends on your professor. For the professor I TA for, re-using a previous paper would result in a 0 grade. However, I know of other professors who would be perfectly fine with it. If I were you, I'd email the professor and ask them what their specific policy concerning this is.
