Schools tackle growing practice of cheating

The Canyon Crest investigation determined that an estimated 50 percent of the students in one teacher’s two AP psychology classes – or about 40 to 45 students – were guilty of cheating. There were varying degrees of academic dishonesty: sharing the test and providing the answer keys, receiving those answers, sharing homework notes and collaborating on assignments that were meant to be completed independently. “The students were not at fault,” commented one student in response to an article on the issue. “The reason that the students were able to cheat on the tests was because the teacher never changed the tests from year to year. This illustrates pure indolence on behalf of all the teachers of this generation who ignorantly cannot be bothered to create new tests from time to time.”
