Academic Intergrity

Wondermark

class motto is 'try it, let's see what you got'

This year I had some particularly difficult issues of students caught cheating. The penalty for being convicted of a violation of academic integrity in our college is dismissal which as dean I am responsible for imposing. But this comic brings to mind the story from my NT colleague who allowed students to use Ehrman’s source book. A student went to the great lengths of typing up notes in 9 pt font, two columns with a gutter, and then glued them into the back of the book. He was discovered because he kept flipping to the back of the book, where no texts were to be found. My colleague kept the book. In my first 5 years I had the dubious distinction of averaging one student per semester caught cheating.

So, what is your best story of catching a student cheating?
