I am a student currently attending University. Myself and four other peers were charged with academic dishonesty on a group assignment by our professor. Four members of our group, me included, had no knowledge that one of our group members had plagarized his contribution to our groups paper. Our professor has handed us four a punishment of "0" on the assignment and suspended the other student from the program. Her argument is that since our name was on the paper, we deserve to get punished. After reviewing our academic policy, no where do I see any direct or indirect statements regarding this. The four of us will be appealing the decision. I am wondering if you think we have a basis for an appeal? The student who did commit the act signed letters on our behalf stating we had no knowledge.
