Dr. Sherman has been teaching classes in law and ethics face-to-face and online for five years at St. Petersburg College. She always posts information about cheating in the syllabus and includes one assignment in each class that deals with ethics and cheating. In the last few years, she noticed that more of her students were using essay-writing services like CourseHero to complete homework instead of doing it themselves, which is a violation of the academic integrity policy. Dr. Sherman includes information about the academic integrity policy and use of Turnitin in the syllabus. She tries to change up some of the assignments each term. Most recently, a student cheated on the ethics assignment on cheating by using an essay from CourseHero. Dr. Sherman is even more concerned because most of her students are junior or senior level students who should be familiar with the academic integrity policy by now.
