Title: How To Pave The Way To An Easy A


1
How To Pave The Way To An Easy A
2
CHEAT!
3
Aggies do not lie, cheat, or steal, nor do they
tolerate those who do…. however Aggies Elaborate,
Collaborate and Borrow.
4
The Facts
  • 75 of students surveyed by University of Texas,
    University of Arizona, and Michigan State
    University admitted to cheating.
  • A survey of 14,000 students at 50 colleges found
    that 75 of their students cheated.
  • And remember these are only the kids who admitted
    it

5
Reasons To Cheat
  • School costs too much to fail
  • Studying takes up too much time and effort
  • Improved rankings
  • Peer and parental pressure
  • Socially accepted
  • Instructor indifference
  • Just because they can, i.e. unmonitored Web CT
    labs
  • Class is too hard

6
The Old Standbys
  • Write on gum wrappers, hand, fingers, sleeves,
    cap, desk, pencil, calculator, if it has a
    surface, they will write on it…
  • Leave imprint of answers on cover sheet
  • Typed and printed (small font) notes and put them
    on your clothes
  • Plagiarize part/all of work
  • Using cheat sheet
  • Going to the bathroom to look up answers

7
Other Ways To Cheat
  • Getting answers from their neighbors
  • Turning in the same paper to different teachers
  • Copy prior semesters work
  • Forcing make-up assignments
  • Communicating through codes and sign language
  • Writing heavy in a notebook with transparent
    cover
  • Breaking into professors office, hacking their
    files, bribing someone with access
  • Body parts, clothing, tools.
  • Body doubles
  • Extort, badger, and bribe

8
Technology Is Your Enemy
  • Cell Phones video, photos, text messaging, web
    surfing, e-mail, silent ring mode
  • Pagers small, e-mail, pre-store information,
    silent ring mode
  • MP3 players, CDR/W all use headphones, all can
    store recordable data, easily hidden, disguised
    as music
  • Personal Digital Assistants PDAs text
    storage, messaging, chat, web surfing, e-mail,
    storing hand written class notes

9
Technology Is Still Your Enemy
  • Water bottles
  • Carefree Gum- yes gum
  • Calculators
  • Purchase test bank online i.e. EBay
  • Internet cut and paste…how hard is that
  • E-mailing themselves answers in computer labs

10
Examples
  • One student used skittles to tell their friend
    which answer to choose by color.
  • I pods can hold an entire semesters lecture
    recordings, with an earpiece and a hooded jacket
    it is nearly undetectable, one student made a
    play list and replaced the song names with
    definitions.

11
How are they using it
  • Cell phones using the earpiece have an unlimited
    range
  • Bluetooth has a limited range of 30 to 100 feet,
    i.e. I pod to cell phone
  • Beaming limited to within the room, works much
    like infrared technology, beaming a signal from
    Palm Pilot to Palm Pilot

12
And…
  • Using earpiece to talk to friends at home. Just
    hide it under your hair and mumble so the teacher
    thinks you are reading the questions
  • Tape notes to the inside of the label on a water
    bottle.
  • It is even said that chap stick will confuse a
    Scantron machine

13
The World Wide Web Of Deceit
  • Cheathouse.com offers 9500 essays from 44
    categories
  • Chuckiii.com list thousands of completed essays
    free
  • Phuckschool.com has 35,000 essays (admission
    essays, dissertations, thesis)
  • Masterpapers.com custom essay, term paper writing
    service
  • Papergeeks.com - 20,000 papers (fee per paper)
  • Schoolsucks.com 80,000 hits per day
  • Termpaperblues

14
What To Look For
  • Phrases that might not come from an
    undergraduate
  • Late work
  • Wandering eyes
  • Hats, long sleeves, jackets
  • Frequently out of their seat for any reason
  • Student being nervous
  • Students who stall

15
What Are The Colleges Doing…
  • Photo I.D.s on the desk at all times
  • Providing monitored rooms to take quizzes online
  • Allowing students to bring a cheat sheet when
    they take the test. It must be handwritten and
    turn in with the test
  • Utilizing Plagiarism Detection Tools and
    Services

16
Honor Codes
  • On exams and assignments On my honor, as an
    Aggie, I have neither given or received
    unauthorized aid on this academic work.
    _______________
  • Signature of student
  • University of Texas will begin requiring its
    52,000 students to swear to a pledge and honor
    code which includes components on values and
    respect.
  • University of Virginia has had an honor code
    since 1842
  • 200 Colleges currently use honor codes

17
Effectiveness of Honor Codes
  • Colleges with Honor Codes have 25 to 33 fewer
    incidences of academic dishonesty.
  • University of Virginia with an 162 year honor
    code last year had 72 cases of academic
    dishonesty and 9 expulsions
  • Larry Falkner President of U.T. admits In a
    competitive environment with intense and complex
    information, its easy to forget those things, so
    the Honor Code is a reminder

18
Then What Can We Do?
  • Communicate policies to students and faculty
  • Faculty should reinforce and remind students of
    unacceptable behavior
  • Establish non-permissive examination
    environments
  • Apply consequences in a consistent, fair and
    timely manner
  • Maintain an environment of trust and honor
  • Keep up with technology. Know how the new gadgets
    work
  • Put devices such as damping fields, or all metal
    lined rooms that cut off cell phone service in
    the classrooms

19
What Can I Do?
  • BE A ROLE MODEL
  • HAVE A STATED POLICY AND USE IT, MAKE NO
    EXCEPTIONS
  • ALWAYS LOCK YOUR OFFICE DOOR
  • SHRED YOUR EXAMS
  • CHANGE VERSIONS REGULARLY
  • GIVE MULTIPLE VERSIONS
  • CONTROL THE ENVIRONMENT
  • WALK THE ROOM
  • SPREAD EM OUT

20
You Can Also…
  • Do not permit late topic changes
  • You can use in class assignments
  • Pop quizzes over basic knowledge
  • Require outlines and rough drafts
  • Keep work on file for 5 years or more and
    publicize it.
  • Change topics regularly and keep them current
  • Avoid general topics
  • Make the students leave their bags/cell phones at
    the front of the room

21
Prove It!
  • Collect your evidence and be prepared to prove
    your accusation.
  • Speed is of the essence .. Web sites remove the
    articles to avoid proving the cheating occurred.
  • Use technology to fight technology, such as
    turnitin.com to compare phrases within term
    papers against a vast database.
  • Students have been known to sue to have their
    grades changed and records restored.
  • When caught they will deny, badger, create
    issues, plead ignorance, express remorse, use the
    syllabus as a defense.

22
Conclusion
  • Students do and will cheat.
  • They will use the most ingenious methods to do
    so.
  • It will be extremely difficult to catch them and
    to prove it.
  • The best way to prevent unethical behavior, is to
    eliminate the opportunity for it to occur.
