8 Student Q&A

The switch to completely online courses and exams has led to significant increases in academic dishonesty. Or has it? Homework sites make it easy for students to find whatever answers they need quickly. Or do they?  To gather a further understanding of the role of “cheating” in online classes, we hosted a Q/A session with our fellow students in the Office of Open Learning to help determine what motivates students, how grading impacts students, gauge student problem-solving process, and much more.

Myth 1: Assessment motivates students to learn


Myth 2: Students know what’s expected of them


Myth 3: Homework websites, like Chegg, are all about cheating

There are many different resources available that provide us as students with access to textbook solutions, online academic support and much more, but Chegg is the most popular and widely known. Chegg is a paid subscription service that provides students with study help by giving access to textbooks, solutions, tutors, and other tools. Much of what the site offers is very beneficial to students working in a time of an abundance of information.
