I gave an assignment to a class of 260 US students, the instructions included a note that spelling was judged in accordance with the first dictionary listed in the TAMU library catalog in a regular search of databases. It was the UK version of the OED and I took some mean pleasure in pointing this out when they asked me to look at drafts.

Amazing what a student will learn for a grade.
