Cheating and plagiarism have become very serious problems in schools and colleges alike. Cheating can be seen as any action that violates the rules for administering a test. It can take a wide variety of forms and may involve any of the stakeholders in the testing process including candidates, their teachers and those responsible for administering the test. Teachers, examination boards and their agents clearly have a responsibility to discourage cheating on their tests and to minimise it wherever possible.

Dr Ardeshir Geranpayeh (Cambridge English) will explain the concept of cheating and plagiarism, the context under which they happen, what is at stake, and the reasons underlying this increasingly widespread phenomenon. The standards for the prevention of cheating and various measures to control this phenomenon will also be discussed.

Organised by Cambridge Assessment Network, the event is free to attend and is open to all members of the public. Read more about the talk and register to attend
