Would you pay someone to do your homework?

Posted 02 September 2016 - 07:08 AM

I read an article about how may college students use essay writing services like this kind of thing...[link removed]. Apparently it's the high achieving kids who are doing it because they're under more pressure to get the results.
So I'm curious, is this something you'd do? Or have done?

Fuck no I would not, nor would I hire anyone who I ever learned did so. That's the height of academic dishonesty.

That is cheating, so no, I do not do it.

When I teach as the instructor of record, my cheating policy includes the following minimum penalties:
-I issue a -200% on the assignment
-The student is disqualified from any curve
-I submit a report to the honor court

The usual penalty is the immediate failure of the course and submitting a report to the honor court

If the student paid for the assignment, that makes it all the more rewarding when failing that person.

(Of course, it is more rewarding when students do their own work, learn, and succeed.)

Why curious? As an honest and hard working person you should be appalled and disappointed.

Although; It is understandable that if the student is under pressure he/she may use it if they already know it, but 9 times out of 10 people here will tell you that it is not appropriate and frowned upon.

Myself included. Even if the person is under pressure and know the material, the person should not use such resources for his /her personal gain. Not only it is cheating, it is almost like someone giving the impression of him throwing dirt (that you paid for,) on those who are working hard for the same thing.

No it is not. It is an honor code violation, for which there is no forgiveness. Only eternal shame, guilt, damnation, and failure.

By the way- this seems relevant.

All I Want is the Diploma

The work force is full of people who do the minimum necessary to get by. Give me one reason why I, as a citizen or consumer, should help create more of them.

Call me elitist, but there are a lot more people who want good jobs than there are good jobs to go around. I think society has a perfect right to reserve those positions for people who demonstrate a commitment to excellence.

For people who want to get by on the minimum, there's a reward already established. It's called the minimum wage.

I agree with you, if you read the second half of my post, I disagree with cheating. The first half of my post was based on my college experience.

Shouldn't you be applying for a job?

If I'm under pressure and can't deliver on my assignments I just get an E like a normal person and learn to not bite off more than I can chew.

Drugs are not the answer to this problem. And do people still do ecstasy?
