    haha, I was grading some tests for the teacher who's class I tutor for, and I noticed that two people had the same exact answers. Being curious, I asked the teacher if they sat next to each other, and indeed they do. Anyway, the kicker is that they both got somewhere around a 40%, I don't remember the exact number.

    I always wonder why people cheat when they don't even cheat off someone who knows the answers. :rofl: Did you give them each a 20% for their half of the work? :biggrin:

    This does not surprise me a bit. Business majors are the more represented share in the human population. It contains the most average, stupid people. Second to that is political science majors.

    Engineers are right behind them at 54% followed by Physical sciences at 50% so I think it is a little unfair to make generalizations. The only thing that can be said is that too many people are cheating.

    The irony is that only the honest students would admit to cheating. :uhh: When they include copying another student's work without specifying how much, then I'd expect the real percentage to be much higher. I think it would be very rare to find a student who has NEVER copied even a single homework problem from a classmate when they got stuck and ran out of time to work it out or get proper help before turning it in.
