As long as teachers have been giving tests, students have been cheating. And as technology evolves, so do the cheaters’ methods.The Baltimore Sun reports that two Maryland 10th graders cheated by posting test questions from a new statewide assessment test on Twitter. You can see how something like this might freak administrators out. While old fashioned paper-and-pencil cheating had a limited range, social media cheaters could theoretically reach millions of peers.
That didn’t happen in this case. The two sophomores were quickly caught; it turns out that test-makers are equally good at trolling social media, looking for possible security breaches.
