Why “Cheating” In Exams is a Non-Issue
Here is my counter question – Is it relevant?
When people perform jobs or work in real life, they use ALL available resources and information to get the job done. Nobody does complex and important things based on rote memory alone. At every stage we check and recheck the progress of the task through external inputs and information.
If tests are meant to ascertain how well students can perform previously taught stuff under real-life conditions, why insist on measuring their performance under highly unnatural conditions.
