Hello. I teach a Computer Applications in Architecture course where students learn, among other things, to use Rhino for architectural modelling.
What I want to know is if there is a way to check automatically (via script/programming) if a student simply copied another students work.
Is there something like an identity property that also gets copied when a certain object is copied over to another file?
The way I’m thinking about it is to make a script that opens every file in a directory (containing student submissions) and creating a database of object IDs. Against such database, one can check for duplicates.
Is this achievable? what are the drawbacks?
