Watching people cheat

12.15.05

While proctoring CSI 201′s final exam I was delightfully amused at how people cheat. First of all, it was open notes, slides, book, and previous tests exam so if you still need to cheat despite all those sources you really are special. Yet, people still did cheat. You would think that a cheater would be good at it by now, since most likely they have cheated at some other part of life, however they seem as unexperienced as pre-school children trying to cheat. Like one guy: its obvious you are cheating when you look around and flip aimlessly at the test and stop to write at the same time your buddy to your right is writing the answers. Oh, did I mention the excessive looking around to see where the other TA’s were? Sigh..
