High-Tech Cheaters and High-Tech Solutions

This week, the Wall Street Journal detailed the ways in which cheaters are proving to be even more and more high-tech. We’re talking spy cameras and tactics that would make James Bond blush. From getting others to feed them answers to downloading answers for future test-takers, these cheaters are relentless.

With the advent of more advanced computer-based testing, it makes sense that the solutions become more and more advanced as well.

    If students valued learning as much as schools value results, there would be no cheating. It is a by product of pressure from the education system to achieve rather than to learn.

    If you don’t see a student write the words you have no idea who did assignments. There are so many ways to cheat that take home assignments are meaningless. It is too difficult to prove cheating and so students will not be failed for cheating. Some teachers will always let cheats off so the system is full of inconsistency / procedural unfairness. ( yes, sad eyes and crying works)
