I was always so jealous of my friends and classmates who constantly got away with cheating in school. I was always such a straight-laced student and was too fearful of what would happen to me if I ever got busted pulling one over on the teacher. Maybe I just ended up missing out on a Breakfast Club scenario I’d never forget.
That being said, these students, clever as they were, clearly did not get away scott-free, and the teachers have the stories to prove it…
Wiki Commons My teacher shared with us a story about how since she allowed eating during her tests, one person pulled out a giant bag of M&Ms and ate a specific color corresponding to A/B/C/D. It was a two student duo and they only got caught when another student ratted them out.
A classmate was printing the answers on his paper in a veeeerry pale grey so that it barely can be seen. Still got caught because the teacher noticed him reading an empty sheet.
College physics, girl with a really intricate tattoo on her leg wrote formulas in between the tattoo lines. Even looking closely you couldn’t tell unless you knew what you were looking for. You could tell it was test day because she wore shorts.
I remember a story from my O-chem professor. This student all semester who wasn’t showing up to class kept getting his score improved significantly after re-grades. They got their tests back, had a day to review them, and were allowed to re-submit for a regrade. They knew he was cheating because of the unlikelihood of the grading mistakes on multiple exams but the TAs who graded it couldn’t confidently say it wasn’t their handwriting.
Ultimately it was an office worker for the department who figured it out near the end of the semester, his staples were angled different than the exams handed out that were mass stapled. He was recreating the test, printing it, re-answering it, and then grading it in the same pen as the TAs and had done a good job copying the writing style.
Air Force Apparently, the kids were silently tapping the answers amongst themselves in Morse code. Not even with their fingernails, just their fingertips. I never heard a thing, my coworker happened to catch “B” in Morse code or something. I honestly thought he finally went crazy solely because of his appearance, picture Robin Williams in Jumanji going WHAT YEAR IS IT. I’m 100% sure that if this coworker weren’t in the room, they’d have gotten away with it for sure.
My sister in law is a teaching assistant at her kids school. Her youngest daughter (My niece) was 7 at the time. She stole the test the night before, pretended it was homework and had her mom “help her with her homework” then sneaked the answers into the test.
One of the other kids caught her, let the teacher know and my SIL, who was overseeing test conditions, died inside when she realized it was the homework sheet that she’d filled out.
A classmate broke the screen and keyboard of his calculator and hid his cellphone in it, so it couldn’t be seen from the teacher’s position. The teacher approached him from behind and caught him tho.
Kid wrote the answers to a history test tiny on a piece of paper and rolled it into a clear blue pen only visible from maybe a foot away. only caught him because he wasn’t playing it cool trying to read be pen. also it tipped me off because I did that once in high school.
Via Gavin Whitner/Flickr Teacher told me a story from US History when he used to let students listen to music. They were being tested on the US presidents. One kid was listening to music when his audio cord came out of his phone and his phone started blaring a soundclip of the student listing all the presidents in order. Music was no longer allowed, but he got to try again without music becasue of his creativity.
During a spelling test:
“Miss, how do you spell piano?”
The spelling word was piano. Teacher went on autopilot and started spelling the word.
One of my old teachers told us a story about a student who had rigged up a tiny scroll of paper in a wristwatch with notes written on it. He turned the scroll by winding the watch.
He ended up getting caught because he was winding his watch so damn much during the exam, but the teacher loved the creativity.
I was grading a written assignment that had a 1000 word count minimum and one particular paper just felt really short to me despite word telling me it was roughly 1100 words long. On a hunch, I hit CTRL-A and sure enough after the paper concluded there was a lot of white nonsense text on a white background.
Bonus: We’ll end with a few students who got away with cheating. Not that we condone this activity…but damn…well played
In a lot of my college courses I wasn’t allowed to use anything higher than a TI84. So I took the guts of my TI89 and swapped it into my TI84. Never got caught.
Not sure if this would work anymore, but if I had a paper to write on a book I didn’t read I would find a well-written paper online. Then translate the entire thing from English to German, German to French, French to Spanish, then Spanish back to English. Pull the original paper and the new one up side by side and clean up the grammar on the new paper and you’ve got the same concept, but written just different enough to not be plagiarism. Worked like a charm.
