Background Knowledge

1. the Morse Code The Morse Code is a signal
system devised (1838) by Samuel Morse for use in
the wire telegraph, now used in radiotelegraphy
and elsewhere. Letters, numbers and punctuation
are represented by combinations of dots (brief
taps of the transmitting key) and dashed (three
times the length of dots). (Pictures) 2. Walkie-Ta
lkie A walkie-talkie is a small portable radio
which you can talk into and hear messages through
so that you can communicate with someone far
away. It is frequently used by policemen,
sportsmen and others on the move to communicate
over distances up to a few km. (Pictures)

3. Objective Tests and Essay Tests An objective
test is one of the two types of tests that are
commonly used in modern schools. It is intended
to deal with facts instead of personal opinions.
To make up an objective test, the teacher writes
a series of questions, each of which has only one
correct answer. The student has just one task he
must recognize the correct answer and copy its
letter (or number) on his exam paper. For
testing a students memory of facts and details,
the objective test has advantages. It can be
scored very quickly by the teacher or even by a
machine. In a short time the teacher can find out
a great deal about the students range of
knowledge. For testing some kinds of
learning, however, such a test is not very
satisfactory. A lucky student may guess the
correct answer without really knowing the
material.

Background Knowledge
Distant Education College, Jilin University
For a clearer picture of what the student
knows, most teachers use another kind of
examination, the essay test. An essay test
requires students to write long answers to broad,
general questions. One advantage of the essay
test is that it reduces the element of luck. The
student cannot get a high score just by making a
lucky guess. Another advantage is that it shows
the examiner more about the students ability to
put facts together into a meaningful whole. But
essay tests also have disadvantages. Some
students can write rather good answers without
really knowing much about the subject, while
other students who actually know the material
have trouble expressing their ideas in essay
form. Besides, on an essay test the students
score may depend upon the examiners feelings at
the time of reading the answer. From this
standpoint the objective test gives each student
a fairer chance.

Questions for Discussion
Distant Education College, Jilin University
1. What do you think of the Honor Code? Do you
think it would help in the formation of good
character amongst students, whether at Chinese
universities or overseas? Explain your
answer. 2. Do you think it is possible to
secretly give or receive examinable information
(to be a cheat) and still have a clear
conscience? What is it about cheating which is
wrong and unfair? 3. What suggestions do you have
to guard against cheating in our own lives, in
examinations, and more generally in organizations
like universities?

Text Analysis
Distant Education College, Jilin University
These days university students in China know
more and more about graduate school opportunities
and student lifestyles in American universities.
As in every country, a few American students are
tempted to use short cuts to cheat. Read on and
you will discover a clever way honest American
students use to deal with fellow students caught
breaking the rules. The Honor Code is not to
be confused with the Morse Code. In fact the two
are just the opposite , since the Morse Code is
used to communicate information to others, while
the Honor Code is used to keep it to oneself.

Text Analysis

Students are on their honor not to cheat. The
worst thing about cheating is that the student
may get away with it in the classroom and then a
few years later, overconfident, go in for
cheating on a large scale, such as embezzling a
million dollars, and get caught. The penalty for
this turns out to be a good deal harsher than an
F and three weeks of encampusment. Sometimes
on examination papers and bluebooks students are
asked to write I pledge on my honor that I have
neither given nor received help, followed by
their signature. It is more blessed to receive
than to give. Anyone who gives help, running all
that risk and getting nothing out of it, is so
stupid its a wonder he knows anything in the
first place.

Text Analysis

Students can be inventive and ingenious about
cheating. One student brought a transistor radio
to an examination in Religions of the World,
pretending to listen to a ball game. Actually he
received a stream of information on the
Buddhists, Shintoists, Hindus, Confucianists,
Taoists, Moslems, etc. from his roommate, who was
at the college radio station with the textbook.
By using earphones, he considerately kept from
distracting other students or the proctor.
Proctors, too, can make use of modern electronic
devices for detection. Not only do they keep the
class under close watch with highpowered
binoculars, through a one-way window, but they
communicate by walkie-talkie whenever they spot
anything out of line.

Professors can, of course, make cheating
virtually impossible by avoiding objective tests.
All they have to do is to lead the student into
an essay-type answer with something like Discuss
the philosophic issues involved in an
understanding of social activity, with special
emphasis on freedom and predictability,
objectivity, causality, and relations between the
individual and society. Faced with the prospect
of reading thirty or forty examination papers on
such a topic, professors may be forgiven if they
start their examination Answer the following

Text Analysis

One rather subtle form of cheating is
plagiarism, or writing papers copied out of books
which it is hoped the instructor has not read. An
instructor who finds the prose style in a
freshman theme somewhat unusual for a freshman,
may think it sounds like Arnold J. Toynbee. After
doing a great deal of reading, and learning a
remarkable lot of history, he discovers it is
from Thomas Babington Macaulay. Despite all the
work he has gone to, it was worth it to be able
to write on the paper This was obviously taken
word for word from Macaulay.

you had to steal something, you should have
stolen something with which I was not familiar,

by a fraternity to write his own paper, gets an F

out of college, while the professors reputation

What the student will never know is that the
professors doctoral dissertation was made up
almost entirely of cleverly interwoven passages
from two or three obscure nineteenth-century
historians. However the professor, thanks to
techniques learned in graduate school, knew how
to use ibid., op. cit., loc. cit., and passim in
his footnotes so effectively that it was
impossible for anyone to track down his
references. Also the graduate professor who
supervised his doctoral dissertation was too busy
with his own research to do any sleuthing.

The simplest way to prepare a term paper
without writing it is to have it done by an
agency that specializes in this sort of thing.
For a small sum, say a hundred dollars, you can
get a ten-page paper written on any subject, with
a grade of B or better guaranteed. However, one
student who had his paper written for him by such
a group of people was guilty not only of cheating
but of gross negligence. When he turned in his
paper, he forgot and left in the bill.

Text Analysis

Under the Honor code, of course, a student
would not think of cheating. Or he might think
about it and promptly dismiss the idea as
unworthy. There is too much risk of being caught.
And being caught means being brought before the
Judiciary Board, a group of students who are so
smart they dont need to cheat. Most students
would rather fail, or even study hard enough to
pass honestly, than face the Judiciary Board. The
Board takes up not only cheating but cases of
immoral and antisocial behavior, such as
drunkenness and sexual promiscuity not because
these things are wrong but because they may, if
overdone, give the college a bad name.
