Some researchers from the University of Kansas wanted to see if cheating “works” or is good for students.
Here is what the researchers found out:
- Students who cheated did not learn.
- If a student cheated, her grades went down, even if she was a good student normally.
- The earlier in the semester that students started cheating, the less they learned and the worse their grades.
So, iTwixie girl, do you ever feel like cheating? Now what do you think about cheating… is it ever worth it? Looks like the answer’s a big NO! What do YOU think?
