You might think that the Digital Age has rendered old-fashioned cheat-sheets obsolete as the cheat-of-choice for today's desperate students, but in fact, some of the old school cheating methods -- copying from a friend, writing the answers in your hand, or crib-notes, for example -- remain popular.
At my newspaper, we're working on a project about school cheating and we're uncovering some fascinating facts. For instance, did you know that as many as 3 of every 4 American high school students admits to cheating in a significant way? So we want to examine the effects of a cheating culture -- or at least a culture that winks at cheating -- on the community at large. Does it truly contribute to a society where the rules are meant to be broken?
We're also looking to expose some creative cheating methods, oif only as a guide for teachers and parents on what to look for.
If you happen to be one of those 3 out of every 4 people who cheated in high school, what was your most creative cheat? What "failsafe" method did you use ... or hear about?
