Cheating Scandal at Central Florida May Involve Hundreds

November 9, 2010

Hundreds of students may be implicated in a cheating scandal over an answer key obtained by some in advance of a senior-level course in business, The Orlando Sentinel reported. The professor in the course told his class that he was left "physically ill" and "absolutely disgusted" by the incident. Because of the widespread cheating, close to 600 students will have to retake a midterm. If students admit that they cheated the first time around, they will not face further disciplinary action. Students found not to have cheated will be allowed to take the higher of the two exam scores.
