Our institutional and/or course policies aren’t doing much to stop cheating in college. How we get students to realize how much cheating hurts them? It has nothing to do with whether they’re caught, but rather the personal consequences.
How do you help students understand that cheating hurts them more than they think? In this article, Maryellen Weimer shares a memo that she has given to students. It is a short memo but completely summarizes why cheating can hurt you, the student. This simply memo may be one that we can share before the test as a way to have a serious conversation with students in our classes about the damage cheating can do.
