Cheating may sound like a good idea when you forget to study for a test, or can’t complete a research paper on time, or failing a class but the consequences of cheating range from a very wide variety. Anywhere from temporary academic difficulties to serious legal problems. You can even have permanent reputation damage if you are not careful. It can permanently haunt your academic career. Cheating often goes on student’s transcripts and this can interfere with one’s ability to transfer schools or attend any kind of graduate school.
It’s for this reason that the students might give in to the prospect of succeeding in the class by foregoing the price of academic integrity. Students cheat in order to survive the growing pressure from parents; cheating is continuously getting out of hand due to the
“Succeed so that you can help us in future”. This is always the narrative when a member of the society gets into higher learning. The general population wants to get the best out of someone but what happens when circumstances do not allow for success. Cheating in the exam is one way to make people happy in that one has to violate the rules that govern exam misconduct. In this case, cheating is good but is it morally correct?
Students would believe this since they may feel that their teachers may give them so much homework with such a little time period. Some might even have sports events of other school related things that may not give them much to any time to do their homework. As this does seem like a problem, teens should work this out with their teachers rather than going against what their teachers would want. In other cases, students also say that they feel the need to cheat because teachers and students have high expectations for them and want them to get good grades, putting too much pressure on them. “Well-intentioned parents who want their children to be successful in school can place so much pressure on the kids that they resort to cheating” (American federation of teachers).
Cheating comes with major consequences. Cheating in high school and college are two diverse things. Unlike High School if caught cheating the student doesn’t just receive a failing grade on the assignment and receive detention. Students fail the entire class, possible suspension or explosion. Depending on the college you are attending and their rules and consequences vary, in Jan Archer’s article “The Effects on Students Who Get Caught Cheating in College” it is explained that if caught cheating it goes onto your permanent record.
Another idea, by Cris Tovani(2014) is that students cheat because they do not consider the material they are learning as important. Cris Tovani states in her article, How We Drive Students to Cheat, “It’s not like I’m ever going to use this stuff again”(Tovani 2). When students
In the case of school teachers, a study of the Chicago Public School System had shown that some teachers were cheating on standardized tests because of the incentives of doing so. By helping their students pass the yearly tests, the teachers and schools receive benefits because the system offers incentives if their students score high. Another incidence of cheating that Levitt and Dubner discuss in sumo wrestling. Sumo wrestling is an ancient sport in Japan where it is considered to be sacred and honorable, but it was still found to be prone to cheating. Rankings and everything associated
Cheating the Future One of the most detrimental mistakes a student can make during his school career is cheating. Though often times the students know it is wrong, they are still compelled to cheat because of the pressures of making good grades. Because students are never taught the result of their actions until it is too late, cheating has become a commonplace in schools today. David Vesler, the author of “The One Minute Case Against Cheating”, presents a logical argument to dissuade students from cheating. Why is it important for students not to cheat?
Cheating is defined as unauthorized aid or assistance or the giving or receiving of unfair advantage on any form of academic work. More specifically, this essay focuses on receiving unauthorized answers and gaining an unfair advantage on a quiz that the student was ill prepared for. But what motivates students to cheat? As it turns out, students believe they have many reasons to cheat. They could be concerned with their performance, and the need to succeed.
Weston from John Hopkins University says, “ Paying students for good grades seemed to improve attendance rates among both low-achieving students and lower to middle class students.” This can be challenged because many of those low achieving students go to school for the money. If the cash reward is stop, those students would stop attending students. Even if it increases attendance rates, it wouldn’t make them prepared for the real world where you do not always get rewards. They would subsequently drop out of university of be fired from their job. To be sure, paying students for good grades is not a good
