I'm sitting in the break room at the elementary school where I work. There is a copy machine here and a lady is hired to make copies. School is over and the lady ha her son helping her. A few minutes ago she goes, "oh this is your Docial Studies test for tomorrow!" And then sat down with her son and read every question and ha him answer. If he was wrong she would correct him.



This is wrong, right? That's cheating, right? I'm sitting here like I know she's not helping her son cheat.

Yeah, that would constitute cheating, IMO.

Definitely an unfair advantage at the very least. But I would just call it cheating.

Yes, that is very much so cheating. If the kid had found it on his own and read over it, it would be cheating. Just because his mom found it doesn't make it any less of a "crime".

Yes, that is definitely cheating. The student had access to the test beforehand. I had teachers before that would give copies of the tests out, but EVERYONE got them. I definitely think that mother should be reported, and they should both have some form of disciplinary action.

I told my boss and he said he would let the principal know. Idk how effective that will be though. My boss acted like it was funny.

That is dumb. education should be taken seriously. If the mom is going to help the child cheat, what is she setting the kid up for later?

I wouldn't call it cheating unless the kid has the test hidden copying off it during the test. The answers probably aren't even on it. He's probably already got a good idea of what's on the test anyway. I know in most all of my classes I ever had we got study guides that were almost identical to the test. How is that any different?
