How to cheat as a group and not show your hand

I post this as a service to my students who either think I am an idiot or never got the memo about being slick.

If you intend to cheat as a group, there are certain things you should think about.

1) If you usually get grades in the 60s, and your friends as well, suddenly getting 100% will raise a red flag.

2) So, try to miss a couple of questions. This will still raise your overall grade and not seem so out of place.

3) Talk with your friends, make sure you don't all miss the same questions. Again, it raises a flag.

4) Don't tell your mother "the test was so hard, we had to." Odds are, she might tell your teacher.

5) Don't turn in 2 different tests with the same answers (the correct answers for one of the tests) on both.

Kids think we are a bunch of idiots. Best one I ever got was a photo copy of a friend’s paper with name crossed out and replaced. This was a take home exam.

My daughter's Mock Trial coach had twins in different sections of the same Civics class. They turned in exactly the same paper -- except for the first names.

The teacher asked my daughter to tell her the truth: "Do students think I'm stupid?"

My daughter said, "No. You're not the stupid one here."
