Creating the sense of responsibility in students as a means of preventing cheating

Problems of higher school

Different modern electronic gadgets, on the one hand, help students in their life and study to get information. On the other hand, these gadgets make in difficult for professors to get true results of tests and exams as it is impossible to guarantee that students do them without any help. The study got the following results: foreign language teachers show the most concern for the cheating problem; students’ survey shows that most students cheat in exams using electronic gadgets and they are not ashamed of that. It means they do not correlate cheating and responsibility. Educational talks revealed the main reason for rejecting cheating: students are afraid of being unqualified specialists after graduating. Cheating could be beaten only by forming the sense of inner responsibility in the student’s mind.
