Dan Macsai wrote an article on www.businessweek.com about the increase and impact of students sharing exams online. Here’s an excerpt:
Having easy access to quizzes and notes could also reward laziness, says Nichole Mikko-Causby, a senior at the University of Georgia. “The whole trend seems to be more about getting the grade than improving critical thinking skills,” she says, noting that she’s visited Course Hero but never used it. “It kind of cheapens my degree.”
If students spent the time it took to upload a test or to find the one they needed online on something more productive such as meeting in study groups, reviewing their class notes, or reading, wouldn’t their grades improve?
