Cheating - page 4

Hypothetical situation.... Student A and student B are friends, obviously both in nursing school. Both hold themselves in the top of the class. Students have to give a teaching project in... Read More

    Student B is bold. I've learned that you have to protect yourself. Student A should have never sent B her previous work. People these days are only out for self. And I agree with the person that said student B was never a friend in the first place.

    No need to revictimize the victim right?

    Student A, you are trusting and your trust was betrayed by Student B. Student A, I would hang Student B out to dry and expose them as a fraud - if you don't stand up for yourself the world's Student B's will be at your doorstep waiting for their chance at easy manipulation as well.

    Since it was a research project and the student could possibly get dismissed from the program (and to me, this is WAY different than cheating on an exam), I would probably not say anything to the instructor.

    However, I would march right up to "Student B" and say, "I had an enormous sense of Deja Vu as I watched your presentation. I really hope you enjoyed your free ride..b/c it is the last one you are getting from me."

    She will eventually sink herself.

    I personally do not agree. It was a research project. Said student DID NOT perform the research and as such deserves any and all consequences received. I would inform instructor and say nothing to student B, they do not deserve a heads up or any other sort of warning. It would only encourage them to do this again in the future. Cheating is wrong no matter how and when it is done, student B knew possible consequences when they stole the project and used it anyway. We are all told the consequences on day one.

    I appreciate everyone's replies. It is a mess no matter what, I guess I just wish people thought more. Thought more about other people when they act on a situation. I can't tell you how much I have grieved over this mess since it happened. Our nursing director said that she would facilitate a reconciliation between myself and Student B prior to the new semester starting. 7 months left and this.....it seems far away still.
    Wow, I really feel for you. I would never dream of stealing someone else's work, even if they told me it was okay. I think you did the right thing, despite any negative consequences that may come. As a nurse people would be trusting their lives with student "b" and that is scary considering their obviously low ethical/moral standards. It just wasn't the right career for them, and that's not your fault.
