    If its a multiple choice test your professor wont be able to tell through Blackboard if you cheated on the test. Blackboard wouldnt even tell them you cheated if there were short answer questions or fill in the blanks. The only way to find out if people cheated on a multiple choice test is if lots of people get the same easy questions wrong and even then you cant prove it unless the unauthorized test answers are found or someone tells the professor about it. Then the only way they will know about you is if its on your university email or someone pointed you out.

    Answers you write can implicate you if several people write the exact same words or even use the exact same methods to answer a question when there are many more ways to do it.

    However, professors who give multiple choice exams online probably dont care much that you can cheat or they would not make it so easy.

    How did you have an email open with a lockdown browser. It's suppose to ...well lockdown your browser, or did you just print the email.

    I have no problems with people cheating as long as they are smart enough to not get caught, my problem stems from someone thinking I am stupid enough to think he will admit to his crime even if he does not get caught.

    My stupidity was beyond me, if I don't get caught ill tell on myself it wasnt fair to other students.
    Haha how cute.

    Cheat. You take any advantage you can to get the best grades you can. Don't think for a second those other people in your class wouldn't do the same.

    Besides, if you are using Blackboard it is not like your in a high level course of any real importance yet. At least, I'd hope than any high level course wouldn't use Blackboard...

    Some people do do that, though. I've had somebody come into my store admitting he had shoplifted when we had no idea, he just felt really bad about it after doing it.

    Yeah, you're golden. I use blackboard a lot, and with my google-fu I don't even have to study because of it. If you're on a home computer they've got no way to see what else you have open.

    You rang?




    Aaaaaanyway. I dont see the dilemma. Surely your grades are not dependent on an online test taken without supervision. You are only fooling yourself and dont get to see the actual level you are on and where to improve.

    You dont see people's morals when things are easy. You see them when they are challenged.

    Memorizing and regurgitating information onto a piece of paper isn't a sign of higher intelligence!

    First of all, Blackboard is a shitty shitty website for test-taking. Jesus fuck, it's always down.

    Secondly, it's an online class of course they know people will just google shit up. In the end, you're the looser since you don't really learn material

    It is likely that this is a small test or quiz. An unsupervised exam on blackboard would be incredibly stupid.
