Plagiarism is the academic infraction of choice. How can it not be, though? Information is easily available from the
Internet, especially from sites like Wikipedia. Old term papers are being sold online. Because the Internet provides easy
information fast, the temptation to click "copy/paste" and pull in quotes from a Web site without attribution is great. But
students still get caught because faculty members can search for familiar phrases or quotes to root out plagiarism.
Cheating is on the rise in universities. Is it because students aren't learning the material? Or is it because their learning and
work ethic are so different from their professors that working together to solve a problem is no longer that serious an infraction?
Remember that teamwork has been emphasized to Net Geners since the first day of kindergarten. Businesses are also looking
for graduates who can work effectively in teams.
Based on the very social nature of Net Geners and the tremendous amount of information available to students these days
at the touch of a button, the traditional definition of cheating is changing. How faculties assess students is changing as well.
Faculties still give written exams (in English, it is still a certainty), but they must be ever more vigilant to catch the cheating
student. Cell phones and text messaging have allowed students to text back and forth between each other, conferring through
the airwaves on exam questions. Because of emerging technologies, faculties have to adapt their classes and how they assess
students in order to uphold academic integrity.
