Cheating Investigation Underway At Harvard
Some 125 undergraduate students are under investigation at Harvard University for allegedly cheating on a take-home final exam last spring.
A Harvard spokesman says nearly half of the students in a class of 250 are suspected of jointly working on answers or copying off one another in violation of a no-collaboration policy. "The Boston Globe" reports the suspect students have been notified and will appear before an administrative board in the next few weeks. Those found guilty could be suspended for a year.
