Not in college but I'm sure I did in high school and middle school.

I threw a tiny tiny piece of paper to my friend, apparently she wasn't my friend or else she wouldn't have told. Like this message if you agree a true friend would have either gave the answer and not told or not give an answer and not told!

Not a quiz, but a TEST (5th grade)

11/05/13 7:06 pm

I have not cheated on a test. But I have cheated on hundreds of quizzes.

One time I didn't know the answer on a middle school vocabulary test so I peeked at my friend's answer. I immediately felt SO GUILTY that I purposefully changed my answer for that question to one that I knew for sure was wrong.

Seriously...don't lie to me Maine almost every single person ever has cheated on a test at least once in their life.

Unbeknownst to me once I gave answers to an assignment that was supposedly homework to a kid that missed the class prior. Got reamed out for it by the jerk teacher. I'd do it again a hundred times over to spite that teacher

In 6th grade. And I was caught. Never again. It was the one and only time I cheated. I guess you could say I was no good at it.

Cheating is no fun. Acing it against a tough professor is fun!

My first day of class was 2 weeks into the semester and on the first test day. Teacher had me get the answers from a couple of girls sitting next to me so that I didn't start out with a bad grade. That was the only time.

No, I have never cheated. I never really needed to cheat, as I have always earned good grades with my own hard work. And to those who accuse me and others of lying because we say we never cheated, I feel bad for you. It is possible to get good grades 100% honestly.

11/03/13 12:24 pm

Did they steal? I would give them a lesser charge, but charge them with theft / dishonor / dishonesty, I would.

The constitution test senior year.
We barely breezed over it and I'm sorry but I passed it in 8th grade, why again????

Never did personally I'd b the smart one that would help the others (not that I was smart just would actually pay attention and study) I know some people who wouldn't of passed some classes if not for my "Help" (stupid classes though like music and stuff)

11/03/13 7:39 am

Really? That many people cheat? I did the opposite, learned the subject, then took the test. I love taking tests!

The next poll question should have been, " ever lied to a poll question?"

11/03/13 1:05 am

Yeah, once. It was a geography test where we had to name all the states on a map. I tried to write them all on my hand, as if my hand were the map. Pretty indecipherable to begin with, but the. I got so nervous my hand started sweating,

11/03/13 1:06 am

Plus I was afraid to look at it, so could only manage quick glimpses. Ended up with a 50% on the test, never cheated again.

I'm fairly certain others copied off of me. It would be foolish to copy off of others. If I didn't know the answer them you can bet they didn't know it either.

not on test, but on homework

Never on a test, I was a smart student so the risks outweighed the potential benefits. I copied homework all the time though, that's a little bit more of a gray area though.

Wow 34% of America is lying. Remember, even a quick cursory glance somewhere your eyes shouldn't be counts. U are telling me that there exists a person who finished school without once ever having had a single glance at a classmate's paper? I CALL BS

dxstap Bloomington, Indiana
11/02/13 8:08 pm

Ur correct, 34% is probably too high, but at least 10% of us never cheated because if we didn't know the answer then there is no way anyone else did.

Had a calculator watch in high school. Got me through many a math test. Probably why I suck at math today.

I said no, but then I remembered we used a system in Marine boot camp to get the "less smart" guys through the written test.

ScrewU Gone
11/02/13 4:31 pm

The proctor would read each question out loud, and after filling in the bubble the guys who knew the answer would set their hand on a corner of the desk (top left for "A," etc) and the other guys would fill in theirs. Worked like a charm.

11/03/13 1:07 am

The proud. The few. The dishonest.

In HS, a teacher was sick on test day so we had a substitute. The sub was an old guy who wandered out of the room during the test. The ENTIRE class cheated, except the one girl who told the teacher when he came back.

The whole class had to retake the test, and everyone still passed. So we were not punished.

If you cheat; it's yourself who loses out caught or not.

I am REALLY disgusted with the number of people calling other people liars in these comments, & the way some of them are doing it. Just because you cheated that doesn't mean *everybody else* did. Worthy of unfollowing all of you, in my opinion.

Never needed to

11/02/13 1:36 pm

Yes, I've actually finished a test and then passed it over to my friend for him to copy. I felt bad because he was too high to remember anything we talked about in class lol. At least I didn't have to pay the next time we smoked :)

Not exactly I used someone's test to test for a make-up test which was oral and he gave me the same test! Only good grade I got all semester ( microbiology-ugh) .

11/02/13 1:02 pm

EVERYONE has cheated atleast once through their life in school. Dont tell me you havent looked at another persons paper or looked at your notes atleast once. Scotty is right bunch of liars

11/02/13 1:38 pm

Sorry, I have never cheated on a test. But I have made up for that in other ways...

I've never needed, nor wanted, to cheat. Pass or fail, I felt it was important and fun to see where my education level was accurately. Cheating would result in a false sense of how knowledgeable I was

There is no need to cheat if you can do the work.

11/03/13 10:27 pm

Helping others cheat qualifies as cheating.

Also.. Plenty of people have the "oh shit" moment when they see the test and forget everything they've studied.
Get off your high horse.

I have never needed to cheat. Even with ADHD and learning challenges my superior IQ have somehow helped me through ;-). Just razzing you a bit now. But it is the truth.

We love the short semesters here in the USA. Overseas we committed to a subject for a whole year and wrote multiple 4 hour papers back to back on a whole years worth of work. Here my wife got straight 4.0 for everything she has studied. EVERYTHING.

The only class I really needed to cheat as math but I didn't because I still needed to show my work

The reason I passed math was cause of showing my work even though I would BS it all it still looked like it might have known what I was doing

(Sigh)...whenever this question comes up, non-cheaters are called liars, and cheaters rally in their cheater-ness. Really folks, I have't cheated on a test. Ever. Haven't done any illegal drugs either. Oh I have erred in my ways, just not this way.

11/02/13 11:50 am

when I was a kid I did. And what's funny is, the person who I cheated off (which was like 3 questions because I honestly didn't know) they got them wrong. the rest I did on my own. She caught me the third time I did it. lol so I was on my own. but in the end, karma got me back. I failed ha ha

My senior year of math was a group effort. We were in a split pre-calc/calc class and the teacher spent more time with the pre-calc kids, so those of us in calculus did our assignments and tests together.

11/02/13 10:50 am

I've looked at other people's test to see if we had the same answer, but I don't think I've ever actually changed my answers based on someone else's. I just like knowing what someone else thought.

It wasn't exactly cheating. I just looked at my neighbor's test to see how my answers compared to hers.
