Cheating College Students
Cheating tit students has increased over the years and nothing has been done to stop it. Everyday students in this world grow lazier and lazier and begin to neglect their school work. Academic cheating is defined as representing someone else’s work as your own. It can take many forms, including sharing another’s work, purchasing a term paper or test questions in advance, or paying another to do the work for you (www. Inchoation. Org).
Students with all types of majors cheat, Medical students, Engineering students, Business and even Law students.A Rutgers professor did a study n different fields of majors and students to find out how many students would actually admit to cheating. 56 percent of business students cheat; engineering students took 54 percent and law students only had 47 percent. He discovered that law students, although they don’t cheat the most, have the best reason to. “The stakes are much higher for law students,” McCabe says. “There’s a fear you may not be able to take the bar exam after having spent these three years in law school”. (Gravers, L) In today’s’ world, technology has made cheating much easier.
