U of Ill. considers changes in code on cheating
URBANA, Ill. (AP) — The University of Illinois is considering the first big revision in years to the student code that covers cheating. It comes in response to the growing number of ways students can share notes or even tests.
The potential changes in the code's academic integrity section follow one of the biggest college cheating scandals in years, an investigation that last summer found more than 100 students cheated on take-home tests. But the changes also come at a time when students in general have increasingly more ways to cheat or cut corners and, particularly for students accustomed to success, pressure to do so.
"The temptations are great at the University of Illinois," Brian Farber, an associate dean of students and director of the university's Office for Student Conflict Resolution, told The News-Gazette in Champaign (http://bit.ly/UTT2bo ). "They want to continue to succeed. They know it's important to their future to continue to be successful and that can lead them to take a shortcut when they shouldn't."
