U of Ill. considers changes in code on cheating
URBANA, Ill. — The University of Illinois is considering the first big revision in years to the student code that covers cheating. It comes in response to the growing number of ways students can share notes or even tests.
Brian Farber is an associate dean of students and directs the Office for Student Conflict Resolution. He told The News-Gazette in Champaign (http://bit.ly/UTT2bo ) that students face great temptations to cheat or take shortcuts.
University reports show plagiarism and other cheating has increased on campus in recent years.
Chuck Tucker of the College of Engineering says what has changed is the options open to students. Information is easily copied into reports and test answers can be shared online.
Code revisions would include new sanctions. Chancellor Phyllis Wise is expected to review them in the spring.
