    micro and cheating?

    Advertisements



    So i saw on angel that the final grades are done, but they aren't posted. I called the dept and the secretary told me that there is a delay due to possible cheating (she said she was told to say that by the DOS). My question: has this happened before, and if so, does the whole class get punished? If anybody has any experience, please post. thanks

    Nope, haven't seen grades held up for cheating... Our class couldn't have cheated - ~60% ended up with a C, which was the impetus for a petition that went (predictably) nowhere.

    cheating?? wouldn't they have need to catch the person redhanded? I mean how can they prove someome cheated after the test, unless someone came out and told the profs that so and so cheated off of me... Also why would that hold everone elses grades up? I mean fine don't give the person cheating the grade but post everone elses grades...

    This was e-mailed to me today. I wonder what they are going to do? I did so crappy on the exam that I know I can prove I didn't cheat!

    Dear ALL

    There has been a major irregularity reported to have occurred during Med Micro Final Examination, therefore, the results are withheld until further notice. Please DO NOT seek further information verbally and/or electronically.
    A meeting with your class Reps is scheduled to be held at 3:00 PM ( today), on November 7, 2006 at the Chancellery Boardroom to discuss these matters.

    If they were going to make the entire class retake the exam, they wouldnt want anyone knowing what they "shouldve got". hopefully they just boot whoever was dumb enough to do somethign and get caught.

    it now sounds like it was a group of girls who cheated cause there were notes found in the girls bathroom. I really hope we don't have to retake the exam in January, I only have 2 weeks at home and don't want to spend them studying for micro when I already passed the test.

    To my amazement, the girls' restrooms are often dirtier than the guys! Why is this? You gals have to sit down to do either of your business, how can you miss?!!

    actually proctors fallow you into the bathroom or atleast to the bathroom door. thus it would be hard for someone to walk into the girls bathroom unless they were a girl. And now I heard that there was a total of 7 sheets found, some typed some hand written, in both boy's and girls room. Of course these are all roomers, but I really hope we don't have to retake the exam in january, because for one I don't want to fly back to GND and waste $100 just to take a test that I already passed fair and square, and I also don't want to spend the two weeks I am home studying for a test that I already passed... I really hope that the micro department just finds out who cheated since everyone has to sign in and out when they go to the bathroom. Lucky for me I never go to the bathroom during exams, just incase something like this happens.

    the cheaters are just too dumb. they deserve to get caught then if they actually left the cheat sheets in the bathroom!

    oh how i love dumb criminals, they make me smile. maybe this incidence can make it on to jay leno's monday night headlines.
