Notes on Cheating for the Busy Classroom Teacher.
Moss, Berk
Originally presented to a high school faculty surveyed on student cheating, this paper serves as a teachers' guide to preventing cheating and dealing with cheating incidents. An introduction cites figures indicating that cheating is widespread and urges teachers to impress upon students the seriousness and offensiveness of cheating. The first part of the paper offers suggestions for the prevention of cheating on tests and assignments, recommending that teachers (1) tell students what constitutes cheating and what consequences are possible; (2) monitor test materials, classroom environment, and patterns of student behavior; and (3) structure assignments so as to discourage cheating. The remainder of the paper addresses responses to cheating. After a working definition of the serious cheating incident, advice is given on how to confront a student suspected of cheating and how to contact parents of students who have cheated. Teacher guidelines for selecting a response to cheating and a list of alternative responses conclude the paper. (MJL)
