The internet has changed many things about education, mostly for the
greater good. Today, students can access practically any piece of informa-
tion at any time from anywhere, giving them the ability to take charge of
their own lifelong education instead of relying on teachers to be the gate-
keepers to their knowledge. The flip side of this, however, is that it has also
become infinitely easier to cheat on tests and plagiarize papers with just a
few mouse clicks. The lack of effort involved, combined with the increas-
ing pressure to compete at an ever-higher academic level, seems to have
led to a sea change in attitudes toward cheating. Just how accepted is it?
