Cheating has always been around in schools and universities - but the internet is making it far worse | Marcel Berlins | Comment is free | The Guardian

A short comment piece from The Guardian on cheating and plagiarism.
Surely the solution is to design cheating out of the assessment.
Testing knowledge and understanding outside of a closed book exam is
asking for trouble. The higher order learning outcomes - enquiry,
analysis, application- can be assessed in assignments that demand
indidual creativity without sole recourse to Wikipedia et al.
