The MUSE weighs in on school board’s cheating policy

Katie Noseworthy’s article in The MUSE, Memorial University’s student publication, was picked up yesterday by the Canadian University Press.

If a student is caught cheating, consider the time spent rescheduling the test with the student, administration and parents” says Noseworthy. “Some say the rule was instated to accommodate those with different rates of learning than others. But is leniency on cheating the right way to go about addressing these differences?” Read Noseworthy’s full article at the source (The MUSE) by clicking here.
