Cheating on quizzes or tests

Description:

Students cheat on tests or quizzes to prevent failing them.  

What is the problem?

Students cheat on test and quizzes to pass.

What is causing the problem?

Students cheat because:

  • They are not ready for the test since they do not have enough knowledge or practice.
  •  They are nervous while they are taking the test.
  •  They feel intimidated while taking the test.
  • Have not internalized the sense of responsibility.

What will I plan to solve the problem?

  1. Establish a test policy at the beginning of the year.
  2. Prepare test for students to solve with the knowledge they have.
  3. Advice students about the dates when they are going to be tested.
  4. Advice students about the topics that will be evaluated.
  5. Talk to the students who are cheating to see what the problem is.
  6. If there is an anxiety problem while testing students, give them a second chance to take in a more relaxed environment (one to one).
  7. If students did not take time to review, give them the chance to demonstrate their knowledge in a different way, such as a presentation.
