Homework / Coursework Policy



A question came up on Twitter about getting help on coursework from this site. Here’s my answer:

I’ve created a “homework” tag so we can make this distinction.


That’s pretty great. I have seen a lot of questions asked elsewhere that look like textbook material, and I think that as long as there’s an emphasis on learning (and not just, give me an answer and move on), it should be encouraged.


I’m totally OK with answering homework questions, with the same stipulations that Alison mentioned. It’s important to ask for help and collaborate! Tech is a team sport :slight_smile: though students should ensure that their requests do abide by their school’s honor code.
