  • Widespread cheating occurring in an environment where students are allowed to use Internet-accessible devices to search for answers? NO WAY.
  • The teacher lamented the cheating made the Bring Your Own Device program "look like the stupidest idea ever," the article stated.

    Ya THINK?

    What's the point of allowing them to use the devices if it's NOT to help them find answers??

    Even better, take a picture of the test and text it to your friends.

    It's pretty good advice. It helps you recognize the important parts of the class that will likely be on the exam, especially the parts you do not know. Me, I do the same but with flashcards, I make flash cards with a topic or formula, and sit down and make lists of information based on the flashcard. It works really well.

    There is a difference between getting the answers from the web and passing off someone else's work as your own. Cut and paste from web or wiki, text the questions to friends and have them put the answers on their device, have one person write an essay and forward it to everyone. Cheaters have it so easy these days.

    We just busted 4 kids for cheating and plagiarizing their driver's ed essays. 3 kids with the same essay and citations word for word, and 1 who copypasta'd something from the web that had fark all to do with the question. For a non-credit afterschool course, the kids now have marks on their academic records.

    That's why you need the right questions that don't have one right answer if you're going to open it up to digital devices. With all the stuff smart phones and tablets and stuff can do, it's basically a time restricted take home exam.

    Erm... is there something wrong with plagiarizing a driver's ed essay? Give the kids some credit for not wasting their time on such a bullshiat assignment.

    An essay? For driver's ed?

    In the modern age, being able to evaluate the credibility of a source, locate several, and then synthesize them into a coherent answer, and do it all in a reasonable amount of time is a much more useful skill than being able to parrot responses from a history textbook anyway.

    Driver's Ed essays? WTF?

    What else is needed besides "Green light go, yellow light go faster"?

    I still don't see how some schools offer it as a semester long course.
  • I graduated high school in 2010. You would not believe the amount of cheating that goes on in schools today. No one does anything about it because the administration is terrified of being sued.

    Don't sweat it though; it's a self correcting problem. The ones that cheated their way through high school usually flunk out after the second semester of college. The cheaters aren't prepared for the work load that a university requires.

    There were more than 30 people from my school that enrolled the same semester as I did. Now, four remain. [/CSB]

    To be fair, we memorize formulae. We just don't memorize constants.

    Well, it would be nice if schools would teach useful skills in driver's ed like, here's how to put coolant in a tank, check your oil levels, jump a car, and fix a flat. It's amazing how many people can't do those things.

    Yup. I teach a community college Linux course, and I have one hands on exam (only "internal to the computer" stuff allowed for help - man pages, etc), and 4 at home open everything exams, all total worth 30% of the grade. Everything else comes from labs, 3 unit projects, and a final project. And, even with open resources for the at-home exams, they still have to know their stuff - only a few multiple choice/fill in the blank questions, and then 5 or 6 short essay (4-5 sentences) questions.
  • Not going to lie.... if I was in school today, I would have hacked myself together a stealth device to cheat all day. fark cell phones, im talking wrist watch answers or sewn-inside-my-hoodie system or something.

    farking technology.
