Cheating around the world: customwritten.com
In our school (German high school), it's common to cheat.
So, in order to get what they want, I regret to say, a lot of people in Mexico cheat.
Here is very common to cheat. All my classmates do that, but I don't. I'm a good student.
In high school we were experts at it. Now, in college, I condemn it. I'd rather get an F than cheat.
Yes, I did it a couple of times when I was in school, and tried once when I was at the university but I got caught shame on me!!!!
I try not to cheat at school, but sometimes you can't help it, like when someone accidentally says an answer aloud. One of my friends actually has a brilliant method of cheating. He writes the answers on his ankle, and covers it up with his sock, during the test he occasionally pulls down his sock and presto, there are the answers.
In Italy many people do... it is really common.
In the last years of high school it changes..or so happened for my class.
The reason was that, as many of you said, it is just a bad thing for the student..
But, in my opinion, sometimes it can be acceptable.. some maths rules you can't remember for example...
I remember that a couple of years ago, a museum was opened in Spain (el museo de la chuleta, if I remember well), a museum dedicated to all kind of inventions created by pupills in order to cheat.
Anyone heard of it ?
Who would thought... ;D
Does anybody know this museum?
yes, cheating is very common here especially among enginering students. when i was in college, before the exams, i use a pencil to write the mathematical formulas that we are using on the cover of my scientific calculator. i just can't can't memorize all those formulas. i guess my brain is not meant for memorizing... ask me to do mathematical computations (especially logical computations, the 1's and 0's w/ the and, or , nor, xor, etc)all day but not to read a book or memorize..
Now that I'm in university, I'm shocked to find out that many people still cheat on assignments, if not tests.
I did, on my minor subjects so that I could concentrate on my major subjects. (For the record: I didn't have any intentions to cheat at all, its just that, my classmates were so generous that they would even share their answers ) (Am I cheating? Or I am just showing an acceptance of their offer)
Speaking of cheating, it seems as though we have mainly been speaking about students' cheating. But, here, in the US, there is talk of teachers cheating as well.
With the enactment of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, (NCLB), many researchers and educators are stating that one unanticipated problem that came along with the Act is the "stretching" or cheating of teachers and admins in public schools. With standardized testing being a direct measure of whether the school will receive funding, or not, teachers and educators are finding (unfair) ways to keep their test scores high.
