Tehnology have its own loopholes.Where technology goes, cheating soon follows in the classroom. Many schools long ago banned cell phones after discovering that answers could come via text messages. And now the underhanded have turned to iPods, recording answers and then listening to them as they have an exam in front of them.About month ago i went to a college for placment xams what i found their,during xams the students of local host got all the answers via text msg.
At the University of Washington, instructors know that students use electronic devices to cheat.
So some won’t let students bring gadgets to class, and others restrict what a student can bring, said Gus Kravas, special assistant to the Office of the Provost who deals with student conduct in the College of Arts & Sciences. He has not heard of an instance of a student using an iPod to cheat on an exam, but there have been cases where students were suspected of using text messaging.
“It’s on our radar screen, and we are concerned, and we’ve always felt that the best way of dealing with situations like that is prevention,” Kravas said.
Seattle Public Schools isn’t aware of a growing problem of iPod cheating, spokesman David Tucker said.
“We actually encourage that students don’t bring any kind of electric devices that aren’t geared toward educational advancement,” he said
IPods and their nefarious use has the attention of other schools across the country. Schools in Mountain View, Idaho, banned them after learning students were downloading formulas and other material.
IPods and Zunes can be hidden under clothing, with just an earbud and a wire snaking behind an ear and into a shirt collar to give them away, school officials say.
“It doesn’t take long to get out of the loop with teenagers,” said Mountain View High School Principal Aaron Maybon. “They come up with new and creative ways to cheat pretty fast.”
