The Big Cheat

There’s high dra­ma in the class­room at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Cen­tral Flori­da. Richard Quinn, a long­time busi­ness instruc­tor, gives 600 stu­dents their mid-term exam. Then comes the anony­mous tip that cheat­ing is ram­pant. Foren­sic analy­sis bears that out. Ulti­ma­tums are made. Moral lessons drawn. Soon the con­fes­sions – all 200 of them – fol­low. A rough day for all involved.

Post­script: We poked around a bit more and read the stu­dent news­pa­per at UCF. It’s pos­si­ble that the cheat­ing ring may be less devi­ous than it first appears, but it’s still not entire­ly clear.
