Gasp! Harvard students accused of cheating on take-home exams8/30/2012
Oh, Harvard. That sound you hear is Yale laughing. Turns out some of the Ivy League’s brightest might have gotten a little help on their final exams, according to an investigation into claims that dozens of students cheated on tests. School officials declined to say what the class was, but they say cheating was uncovered in nearly half of a series of take-home exams, and several students told the Harvard Crimson the course was a Government course called "Introduction to Congress." Jay M. Harris, dean of Undergraduate Education, said a teacher's assistant saw evidence that students "collaborated on answers or used … identical strings of words." A big no-no, but, just a tip to upper-crust Harvard educators: This is what happens with take-home exams. [Source]
