any suggestions on how to remove/edit the name of a reviewer (on tracked changes?)

1) On the Review tab, in the Tracking group, click the arrow next to Track Changes, and then click Change User Name.
2) Click Popular.
3) Under Personalize your copy of Office, change the name or initials that you want to use in your own comments


- The name and initials that you type are used by all Microsoft Office programs. Any changes that you make to these settings affect other Office programs.
- When you make a change to the name or initials that you want to use for your own comments, only comments that you make after the change are affected. Comments that are already in the document before you change the name or initials are not updated.

My students use Word 2010 and I have 2013. I want to know if there is a way that when Student B opens Student A's file and saves it in his/her folder it does not change the author. In other words, see who is cheating. Is there a way? It used to list the original author in the properties and then added those authors who opened the file.
