Dozens of Chinese students at the University of Iowa are being investigated for cheating in their online courses, according to a news report from Reuters. ProctorU alerted UI that the students may have attempted to cheat by having other people take their exams in one or more courses. In a story posted Wednesday, Reuters reports that most, if not all, of the UI students under investigation are Chinese nationals who stand accused of cheating in online versions of at least three courses. Three of those Chinese students admitted to Reuters that they hired Chinese-run online companies to take exams for them. There are many such services that offer to help foreign students at U.S. colleges do much of the work required for their online classes — everything from writing papers to taking exams.
