Week 2: BAR

Question 1: Other than stopping students from cheating, Sternberg rasies large concerns for the focus on why student’s may be cheating and if it at all has any effect on how they will perform in later careers. These are important points as it would prove that cheating is redundant if the thing that they are cheating on is not in fact a true test of character. Therefore, to act ethically wrong and cheat, may only arbitrarily enhance a person’s opportunities using a method that is outdated and does not encompass the true value of person.

Question 3: In the short term, instructors and the administration could stop cheating simply by strengthing the institutional rules. That is, to have higher penalties for cheating and to continuously change versions of tests so that there is no to little incentive to seek outside help if it is not readily available.
