Cheating is not only an issue in the classroom, but outside of it as well. Cheating has become one of the top reasons relationships have tended to last much shorter spans in contrast to previous times. Consequently, cheating hinders more than just a person’s ability to learn, but it also negatively affects their character. If you asked an average high school student to give you reasons for cheating in school, I am certain the list would be never ending - from reasons as simple as being too lazy to complete the tasks, to some students just flat out not understanding their assignments. Jones suggest that, “The reasons students engage in academic dishonesty vary, but as commonly understood, the overriding reason is performance” (144).
Another reason is because they tend to cheat. Lastly, paying students will only help in the short run not the long run. Paying a student is a horrible idea because it takes the motivation of learning from a student, they can cheat, and it only helps in the short run. First of all, schools should not pay students for good grades because they can lose their motivation to learn. Edward Deci says, “Most children are by nature motivated to learn,”.
There has been many reasons why students cheat on their assignments. According to Asia Pacific Journal, students are unprepared, incapable, pressured, and ignorant of the ethic in their writing environment. If students are busy or don know the material they feel the need to cheat because it 's easier and faster to take someone
According to Halupa’s article “Exploring Student Self-Plagiarism,” self-plagiarism is when students copy from or reuse a paper that was used for another class. Halupa’s point is that many students in the universities and colleges are unaware that there is such a type of cheating called self-plagiarism; because of this ignorance students make the mistake of cheating on their own papers. Students feel that they are allowed to submit their own papers for other classes, and they go on to university without knowing that the practice of self-cheating is just as dishonest as e-cheating and traditional types of cheating. The effects of cheating are serious; there are no reasons to take these effects
Faith, a student who gave her opinion to the New York Times, says that those students “can’t afford review books,” have to “take care of siblings,” and have to work to “bring home a paycheck for bills.” Affirmative action allows colleges to be more forgiving to these kind of students who’s GPAs and resumes suffer because of their lack of resources and responsibilities beyond school. However, this argument ignores the fact that affirmative action doesn’t actually solve any of these issues. There will still be students who, due to circumstances beyond their control, cannot succeed as much in school compared to other students. These are real examples of the institutional disadvantages minorities face. Wouldn’t it be better to solve these issues directly instead of offering the sloppy workaround that is affirmative action?
Its standards are not high enough and accept half-hearted work from students who do not know how to ask for more from their teachers. Tragically degrees have become deliverables because we are no longer willing to make students work hard against high standards to earn them. Thus a weak educational culture creates all the wrong opportunities. In the absence of high academic and behavioral expectations, less demanding peer norms become dominant culture in campuses. The time students spent on class
Social networking also provokes cyberbullying and it spreads false information. Students go on social media too much and it results in them getting lower grades. They tend to not be focused on the task at hand and end up not getting their homework or whatever they’re working on completed. Also, some users bully others online and it affects the victim's life severely. Commenting something inappropriate could spread to many people's lives and could hurt lives in ways that people don’t know.
Computers have ushered in an era of cut, copy and paste thereby allowing students and teachers to bypass real research. Therefore, the managers that B-Schools churn out annually will enter industry with a very poor knowledge of research methodology and thus denying them the ability to
A cheater starts cheating by any means possible when he is in desperate need of answers. This lowers the cheater’s self-respect for himself because he will always feel that he is not good enough to understand or answer the questions which in return lowers his confidence too. Due to his low confidence level, he will always think of cheating during examinations instead of thinking for himself in order to obtain the answers, but at the end of the day, he will only be cheating himself and it becomes worse when he gets caught by the invigilators. A student learns by building on the concept they have learnt from the day before and it does not occur in a day. A student must be able to learn the underlying basic concept before learning the next concept.
On the other hand, the limitation of ICT use in education is related to student behaviour. Appropriate use of computer and the internet by students have significant positive effects on students’ attitude and their achievement. Unfortunately, it is very common nowadays to see that the students misuse the teachnology for leisure time activities and have less time to learn and study. Instead of using the computer provided for their studies and online tests, they get distracted to visit social networking sites like Facebook, Instagram, Youtube or Twitter. Yousef and Dahmani (2008) described online gaming, use of face book, chat rooms, and other communication channels as perceived drawbacks of ICT use in education, because, students easily switch to these sites at the expense of their study.
