If you google your exam questions, you will see what’s out there.

Why is is it morally unthinkable for some students, but perfectly acceptable for others - no guilt or ethical meltdowns?

Many science and engineering courses rely on quantitative problem solving skills. Some physics faculty use Lon-Capa to individualize questions on quantitative exams and combine this with increasing exam numbers and shorten exam time. This strategy resulted from discussion of physics chairs/heads nationwide. Advanced proctoring schemes were not encouraged. For example, in my own course I administer 10 exams, each 20 min long. No two exams are the same, and exam change every year. As far as I see it seems to work. I don't see chegg entries from my exams anymore.

Good strategy!

Student-generated materials and assessment of process skills can eliminate cheating. We published an example of integrating these into lab curriculum: https://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/acs.jchemed.0c00639

What does the University do to educate students about why they shouldn’t cheat in general? I teach mostly pre-professional students and it bothers me immensely to know that they are okay with cheating to get through college. Is this the way they are going to approach their careers as nurses, pharamcists, doctors, etc.?
Ken Lepper

Mary K. - I reach, I really reach this worry!
Polly Olson

A general education category that requires all students to take an ethics course?
Mary Kenyon
41:12
I have had numerous essay questions show up in Chegg.

CHP has an academic conduct statement that all students sign before they enroll in classes. Those programs do want to know about students unethical behavior.
Scott Wood
51:01
Mike - I have a question.
Ken Lepper
53:41
Scott. How do you assess the material for which that the students skip the assessment?
Scott Wood
54:19
Multiple assessments check multiple learning outcomes.
Alexey Leontyev
55:14
Not everything has to be assessed
Stacy Duffield
57:09
What Scott is doing sounds like a competency-based approach. Instead of adding up points, it's about students demonstrating the learning targets.
Alexey Leontyev
57:23
Assess what is important, because otherwise what is assessed becomes important.
Greg Cook (He/Him)

Thank you. I think we should continue this discussion in the future.
Mary Kenyon

Thanks all for the helpful ideas.
