Using Search Engines For Test Taking

The School Library Journal has an article named “Cheating via Google?” The article explores the use of search engines in the classroom and during test taking. Some schools are allowing students to use a search engine to find information and answers while taking an exam in a classroom. While some schools do not allow “cheating with Google” many would allow students to use search engines for quizzes and take home tests (how would you stop them at home). Back in my day it was more about how advanced is your calculator, if it was too advanced, it was not allowed for some tests. While the basic calculators only allowed you to write 07734 upside down for cheating purposes, Google gives you all your answers in a matter of a split second.
