Any teacher will tell you that cheating, copying, and plagiarism is a major problem in their classrooms, but I set out a week ago to find out exactly who commits these classroom felonies and whether the stigma about AP students being the “better” and more honest students is a myth or fact.

After 210 anonymous papers being filled out giving their answers, I realized that the stigma around cheating and plagiarism doesn’t prevent kids from doing it. Without giving away the information that will be in a later article, I can’t tell you which groups answered what, but I can confidently say that cheating isn’t isolated to any specific group, although girls did tend to be more honest than boys across the board.

In sorting through answers, it was pretty funny to read apology letters for cheating on tests in elementary schools, people with confused genders, and pictures of stick figures doing the Macarena.
