200 cheating students

University of Central Florida students to take ethics seminar or flunk

The detective work of a university professor has uncovered the largest cheating scandal in the history of the University of Central Florida. Professor Richard Quinn discovered that 200 students–one third of his business course–cheated on a midterm, managing to secure the answers ahead of time. Professor Quinn says that he knows who all the cheaters are, and is urging students to come forward and confess (and take an ethics seminar) or possibly face expulsion. According to the video on ABC News, many of the students are seniors with only a month of school left. About 75 per cent of the students who cheated on the midterm have come forward so far. Whether they cheated or not, all 600 students will have to re-take the midterm.
