Abe Vigoda's Ghost: Adrian Guardia, a Texas A&M instructor in management, took notice the other day of a student who was apparently doing well. His quiz grades were solid, and so was what CourseSmart calls his "engagement index." But Mr. Guardia also saw something else: that the student had opened his textbook only once.So he's either cheating, or the textbook is worthless. I'm guessing the textbook is worthless."It was one of those aha moments," said Mr. Guardia... I knew I had to reach out to him to discuss his studying habits."Why? If he's doing well in the class, obviously his studying habits are working for him. How about reaching out to the students that are having real problems.
ScouserDuck: Bah. I always read every reading assignment I was supposed to so all these other kids should too. It's about time they're held accountable. Although, I will say I don't get the headline. What's the connection between this story and reality TV?
WhippingBoy: Next thing you know, they're going to be monitoring exams to make sure that no one cheats! What's this world coming to???Where am I, Russia???
