The cheating epidemic

Telegraph | Education | I cheat us all by doing my pupils’ work
Most people who work in education are aware of the situation described here. It’s now reaching epidemic proportions. I’m coming across more and more undergraduates with apparently good A levels who flounder hopelessly when asked to take part in any kind of academic discourse. What’s worse, the culture of target setting and league tables is creeping into HE. Already there are worrying signs of declining standards, and increasingly bizarre methods of coping with the Google generation, who just don’t “get” plagiarism.
We may just have to rethink the whole process of assessment before grades become utterly meaningless.
