Everyone Used to Do It! | A discussion of how online testing software can improve testing integrity | Just look up the topic of “cheating on tests” on the internet and you might be surprised find thousands of links—everything from studies showing the widespread prevalence of cheating to tips for students on how to cheat! Most of the methods for cheating have been around for a long time and are well known—such as crib sheets, passing down tests from student to student and year to year, or simply looking on someone else’s paper. Nowadays, students are finding new and unintended uses for modern technology in their quest to pass courses the easy way.
