An Inclusive Litany


From the GW Hatchet, the student newspaper of George Washington University, March 2, 2000:
Jerry Harvey, a business professor, adopts an uncommon definition of cheating in his classes.

"Cheating is the failure to assist others on an exam if they request it," he tells his students....

Harvey says his policy brings out the best in his students because they are able to think creatively without the stress of working on their own....

Students think it is wrong to ask other students for help on tests and assignments because they are never presented with a different perspective on cheating, Harvey says.
