Cheating is definitely a problem. But I don't think people think about why a person would want to cheat. People don't realize what some tests are. A lot of them are just memorizing. Nobody will learn from memorizing everything. Some tests that we take involve us memorizing the answers on a review sheet or memorizing a list of terms. These are the tests people cheat on. When it comes to applying concepts to problems, there is almost no way of cheating because you have to come up with the answer yourself. Many students don't want to spend hours trying to memorize a giant list of things so they simply make a cheat sheet with everything on it. It saves time for them but they don't think of the consequences. The article does support its argument of why cheating is bad and wrong, but it doesn't try to explain the reason for everyone's cheating. So I will. Memorizing Tests = cheating 95% of the time. Non-memorizing tests = no cheating.
