Jialin ZHU


The phenomenon of College Students’ cheating in examinations is still serious. This paper takes X University as an example to study the phenomenon of cheating in colleges. Based on the statistical analysis of 396 students punished for cheating in exams from 2011 to 2017, it is found that there is a concentrated outbreak of cheating in exams, and that sophomores and juniors are more likely to cheat in exams with paper tapes. It is suggested that we should strengthen honesty and credit education, formulate and revise relevant supporting documents of examination management to strengthen the sense of responsibility of the academy, strengthen the education and guidance of freshmen, reform the way of curriculum assessment as well as build up a qualified invigilator team to prevent cheating in examinations.
