Student Ethics in the Digital Age Research Paper Rough Draft Cheating is known widely around the United States of America, occurring mainly in High School and College students. Cheating can result in severe consequences. Cheating has become an ever present problem in schools today, starting in higher level education, students are finding it easier to cheat and feeling less guilty about it, disregarding the effects it has on them and others around and the consequences the students must face due to their actions. Cheating seems to be a recurring problem for higher level education. In the article written by Tommy Raskin titled, “Why Students Cheat?” he states, “Much of schoolwork is not fun, engaging, or inspiring, and students only put up with it so they can graduate, go to college, and then reap the economic benefits they are promised for getting diplomas” (2).
In the article, “Creating Awareness of Plagiarism Among Postgraduates in a Postgraduate Course Through a Talk”, Author, Khazriyati Salehuddin states, “Ignorance has been identified as one factor that contributes to students’ excessive plagiarism.” Some students may feel as if they aren 't “smart enough”, so decide to plagiarize in order to feel more intellectual. The lack of support for these certain students can make it even worse. Other issues that contribute to this issue are students thinking it will provide a successful future. Students are having the mentality that academic dishonesty will lead them to a successful future. In the article, “Academic Dishonesty in Online Courses: Considerations For Graduate Preparatory Programs in Higher Education”, Author, Steven Tolman (qtd.
They believe since there is such a high level of cheating in high school that it becomes a habit they bring to college with them. The last example is, but since there are colleges using the honor codes they find that “many schools with academic honor codes allow students to take their exams without proctors present, relying on peer monitoring to control cheating” (McCabe, Donald, and Pavela). The colleges find that when they use honor codes they can trust their students and their peers to see if there was any form of cheating. But if they did not use the honor codes they would have to monitor the class and see if anyone was cheating or not. They find that with the honor codes they have less cheating then without the honor
In “College Pressures” by William Zinsser, leader of one of the residential colleges at Yale University, the author describes the different amount of pressures that students struggle with in college. Because of his position at the university, he constantly noticed the students around him and the anxiety that was radiating off them. He believes that economic pressures cause students to feel anxious about paying back student loans after college. However, parental pressure leads students to make decisions that their parents would be happy with because of the feeling of guilt and wanting to please them. Peer and self-induced pressures are also mentioned in Zinsser’s essay.
These Free Speech Movements in Universities across the nation displayed a major loss in youth’s respect for educational authority, due to authoritative power’s actions that the students felt were unjust. As shown in the Berkeley Sit-In, students chose to fight against rules instilled by superiors for the first time in the history of the University.

Brianna Townes Comp 1 Ratliff 10/22/14 Cheating in College According to the Boston Globe, cheating in college has remained the same since first measured in the 60’s. You would think that over the years, as much as our culture has changed it would have increased. Especially with how easy it is to look up and copy things off of the internet. There are several reasons why kids want to cheat but sometimes what they don’t realize is cheating comes with consequences. While this may or may not tell us a little something about ourselves or just people in general, it clearly indicates that whatever is being done to stop cheating isn’t working.
Kids who cheat their way through high school or college are cheating one another out a proper school education (Broussard 27 ). In view of the fact that kids are cheating their way through school, when they get into the world with real jobs, they will not be doing the right things at the right times. Secondly, with this honor code, it will not only make people hold themselves accountable , but it will make them hold their peers accountable as well (Vangelli). In the incident of anyone cheating, students have signed saying they will turn themselves in for their act of cheating. However, they have not
Department of CSIE 高嘉豪 Do students have the right to cut classes in college? You would think that for students to go to school, appear in class, listen to the lectures, and just learn from the teachers is something that can't be more normal or true, and skipping classes is like breaking the laws and unforgivable. Maybe it easily applies to some of one's studying periods, elementary school, junior high, senior high, but college? I think there're lots of people who would beg to differ on this one, including me. In college, especially in this era where teachers' powerful authority and controlling are barely existing , students have much more freedom and rights, which inevitable leads to the question: "Do students have rights to skip classes?"
Many students either care too much about the tests, and therefore try to cheat, or they don’t care enough about the test, making the results worse than they normally would be. Ryan Deffenbaugh explains that one college, along with many others, no longer requires test scores for applicants because there were many arguments that “the scores are not a great indicator of future success in college, and that a billion-dollar-test prep industry creates an unfair playing field for students from families with lower incomes” (Deffenbaugh, 16). This college, Purchase College, is one of many that has the opinion of standardized tests being unreliable when accepting students. They don’t show true intelligence because anyone can get some luck when guessing. An article states, “Kids learn early on that they don 't have to think outside the box, they don 't have to be creative, collaborative or be critical thinkers.
