Dozens of Dartmouth students were charged with violating the school’s honor code after they were caught cheating in an ethics class, reports the AP. The class, a sports ethics course targeted at student athletes struggling with academics, apparently did not leave a lasting impression on the 64 students the university has punished for cheating.
The widespread cheating scandal involved “clickers,” digital devices registered to specific students that are used to answer multiple-choice questions or chronicle attendance with a professor. Some students brought in their friends’ clickers to class and answered questions for them on tests, a clear no-no in any class, but especially in one focused on ethics.
No word on whether the students will be forced to take Irony 101 after returning from suspension.
