Taking Cheating to the Next Level

A High School Teaching buddy of mine in Dallas, Texas sent me this pic (note: this is not the actual book and phone that he confiscated, but a pic he found similar to it online.  The school would not let him take a pic of it.)  He is an English Lit. teacher.  They were having an open book timed test and a student in the back kept flipping pages whenever he walked by.  He noticed the student would always flip towards the front of the book even though the test was over the 2nd half of the novel.  Finally, he asked the student to turn to page 200 and something, since that was what they were testing over.  The student refused.  He took the book and found this.  The student had been using his phone, typing in the questions and finding the answers online.  Pretty clever, but a big FAIL for getting caught.

Technology has taken cheating to a whole new level.  When I was in school, it was notes written on your shoe or your forearm...

  1. An open-book test is nearly cheating already. This kid wanted even easier access to answers? Maybe have his food chewed for him too?
