    Students Use Camera Cell Phones To Cheat On Exams

    SALINAS, Calif. -- It's cheating -- with a high-tech twist.

    Forget the crib sheets or peeking over someone's shoulder, now some students are using their cell phone cams.
    Officials at Everett Alvarez High School in Salinas say a student used a cell phone camera to take a picture of an exam. But the student was caught before he was able to transmit the image to a friend.

    The district had allowed teachers to use their discretion in confiscating phones or telling students to put them away. Now teachers must take away any cell phones they see.

    We've had a "no phones during exams" rule for a while at Uni. Even before the days of cameras. Probably to stop answers spreading via SMS

    these devices are getting everywhere.

    pretty soon you cant have any electronics while taking any test and you will be in a tinfoil room surounded by cameras that read your facial expressions

    :sigh:

    LOL, yeah Uni was very strict, even followed you in the LOO to make sure we didnt have essay's written in our pants

    But cheating is very bad, especially with Overseas students, they speak in own language and some (cough) just sounds like mumbling yet they are saying all the Answers!!
