Clicker fraud at Dartmouth.
In the "Sports, Ethics, & Religion" class no less!
Students didn't go to class but their clickers did and other students multi-clicked.
People, I have a serious question: If you cheat in a total joke class is it really wrong?
According to the Chronicle, "The popular class was initially designed to help the college’s athletes, many of whom struggled with freshman-year coursework."
64 of the 275 students enrolled are accused.
Dartmouth needs a "keep the jocks eligible class"? Really?
And it's in the Religion department?
In the classes where I use classroom response systems, I've found it pretty easy to compare the number of people in the room with the number of people signed into the system. So far, that's been pretty fool-proof.
I am guessing this "absentee clicking" was tacitly condoned and the reason there is a problem is that some non-jocks wandered into the class and complained.
I guess this is why we can't have nice things.
I guess this now rockets Dartmouth past Cornell into the "least plausible member of the Ivy League".
