Crime in the Classroom: Analysis over 26 Years
Harrp, David N.
Journal of Chemical Education, v95 n2 p338-339 Feb 2018
Copying adjacent answer sheets on the oft-used multiple-choice exams can be prevented if exam material is scrambled. The latter mode has been a requirement for all exams of this type at McGill University for 26 years. Cheating by copying has been reduced to nearly zero in this time. The experiment carried out used permissive seating and a single version to see if students would still try to copy adjacent answer sheets. With over 1,400 students writing, there were no prosecutable cases detected
