Do you cheat when your teacher lets you switch papers to grade?

    Thing is most teachers collect them back after to put the grades in, some actually glance over it

    I wish. Only in bio for a homework thing, I forgot to label something, and I thought it would be stupid to lose points so, I asked the person who was correcting it to let me write down what I needed to.It was all based on effort points btw.

    I don't usually make deals. I occasionally try to argue, and that sometimes works, but I don't push it, since it's really pointless in the long term. I do tend to go easy on my classmates. If I can tell they were thinking of the right answer, but they did a poor job of putting it into words, I still give them the points, even if part of it is wrong.

    I grade it as I assume the teacher would. I do the same if I'm grading my own paper. I guess I'm a bit lenient, but the only times we do this are when we switch papers for answers to questions after watching these short videos in Art History. If someone horribly misspells Teotihuacan, I understand.

    I'll put it this way: I'm very lenient when I grade other peoples' homework. If they're moderately close to the right answer I usually give them most of the points.

    My teachers always do that "pass it to the person behind you" kind of thing. So making a deal with the other person isn't even possible because the person whose homework I grade in that case does not grade my homework.

    I should have, since it would have brought my A to an A+

    We did in chem all the time last year. It was primarily because nobody understood what was going on in that class enough to do the work. Our teacher was horrendous and would give us AP problems in a regular chem class. So the only way we could keep a decent grade was to cheat. Ugh

    In APUSH, we always switch packets with people. I personally don't make deals, but I know other people do. Our teacher collects our packets (which are out of 10 points) if you get more than 4 wrong (which lowers you to a 9), so people who don't do the packets just make deals and "get" -3 wrong, thus getting a 10/10.

    Honestly, when teachers do that, I take it that they are letting you cheat.

    Lol...those were my 7th grade vocab tests :)
  • EmpEmp Posts: 1,011Registered User Member
    Yes, in English and Macro. Mainly because i'm friends with the person/people I switch with and they help me out. If i'm not friends with them, I don't mention it.

    I don't make deals, but everyone at my school is pretty good about not being a d!ck about grading, so it's all good. I'm a super easy grader, so everyone wants me to grade their paper, lol.

    I've never really seen a reason to, considering that I usually do fine on these things. My Spanish teacher even lets us grade our own papers...she glances at them, though.
