I was browsing photos in facebook a while ago when I saw this photo. I was wondering if this could be implemented to all school out there. This is a good idea to lessen cheaters out there. So that all student can start using their minds not they eyes.

You're joking, right? This is beyond cruel and would be an infringement on our human rights. What next- a ball and chain on the students ankles so they have to follow the rule of not running in the hallways???

I beg your pardon? Are you responding on the right discussion? What cruel you talking about? " a ball and chain on the students ankles so they have to follow the rule of not running in the hallways" I believe that another thing to be discussed. PS: A ball on the ankle is for prisoned people. So your talking that student are in person if they are in classroom?

The 'ball and chain' point is entirely relevant to this discussion. The paper implements are just as bad, attaching something to ones body so they follow a rule(just like a ball and chain would make them follow another rule). School and prison are very alike- schools are no longer for 'teaching' they are for behavior modification(just like prisons are mainly for).....

I agree, this is really cruel and inhumane. So what is the point of going to a school where you can't even see anyone.

This is simply preposterous. They are like horses with blinds on them. I guess this is okay for some places, but this is not really humane. I mean, where did the trust go between the teacher and students? Why not just have each student take an exam with their own supervisors? That way, students wouldn't really need to wear something as ridiculous as some contraption that just implies how they don't have their own discipline in steering away from the temptation of cheating? Practical? Not really.. Not all students are the same. Their natural aptitudes are different from one another. They might as well segregate those that have adequate knowledge from those with below average and give them appropriate classes that would best fit their natural knowledge acquisition capability.

Indeed, student are different from each other. But cheater is always a cheater no matter you turn them up side down.

Now that's just unfair. Try to look at it further. Everyone in the beginning all have equal chances on being whoever they want to be later on. Now their natural abilities can manifest themselves accordingly if the environment that they are in allows them. If the environment doesn't allow any chances, the individual can either just accept the limitations that his environment provides or make their own opportunities themselves. Same thing with students. All students are basically the same at first. They study, they learn and so on. However, there are other influences that affects the student's performance and not all of that comes from low grades. What if they don't really have the confidence to learn? Let's say that one student is not doing very well. Most of the time, those with poor grades are made fun at. Ridiculed, laughed at and perhaps some teachers think that they wouldn't be surprised if that particular student who doesn't do well would cheat on exams. That collective thinking from classmates as well as from teachers would really influence that unfortunate student, even if it's not as physical as others would perceive it to be. Now, what if that's the same thing at home? When that student comes home with poor results, parents would be upset and scold the student for not doing well. Another serving of negative criticisms that would further influence the student that he isn't good enough to do what is expected of him. That's why they end up cheating. A lot of people think lowly of him, people even think that he is capable of cheating so he ends up doing what a lot of people expect of him to do in his bad predicament of grades not being so high. People are not born cheaters, killers, criminals, and so on with those that society deems unsuitable. They are made into those kinds of individuals due to the influences that surrounds them. So, if parents would be supportive to their children, even when their grades are not good, their child would still strive to do their best. If teachers and classmates at school won't make fun of students with low grades, that cheater in everyone of us wouldn't really manifest itself. Of course there are those individuals who have that strong will to oppose the limitations of their environment, including the negative perceptions of people towards them, but not everyone is like that. Most of us are ordinary and would just let ourselves be caught up with the current. Anyway, a cheater had never been a cheater until their environment strongly expects him to be one.

This is nice idea. If it would be in my class no one could get from me answers. Cheating isn't good it makes you a retard, everyone have to learn n learn so they can be best in they way to get great achievements.

When you cheat, you are the one being cheated by yourself. Remember that education is for your own success and as you cheat you are depriving yourself of the the knowledge that must be fed by your own will to reach your goal.

That is so strict to have. I think there are some other ways to prevent cheating but doing that kind of method may have negative effects on the students' personality.

I believe everything has implication either bad or good. Its up to the person/sutdent how they will take it.

Yes. Some may take it negatively and some may not take it negatively. As a teacher, I don't think most teachers here will do that cause I too give mercy to my students. I remember my friend told me about a teacher in the university that we graduated. That teacher is a bit strict when it comes to tests but when he gives tests, he leaves the room 5 minutes before the submission of test papers. He does that so students can at least share answers i that small span of time.

wow, that could be really effective! It did put a smile to my face since I know that if I wore that kind of "helmet" during an exam, there would be really no way for me to even be tempted to glance at my seatmate's answers. It would also prompt me to study very hard because I know I wouldnt be able to have a ask my seatmate for a "backup" even if he/she is generous enough to share.

That's good to know that you appreciate my discussion. Some consider this kind of practice as in humane.

I dont think so. Corporal punishment is needed sometimes and the information that you suggested could be effective in boosting children's attention and values.^_^

Uhh... no don't think that would work. First of all, wow what a waste of paper. lol Second of all, simply looking at another student's paper is no longer the popular cheating method. These days students get copies of answer keys and memorize them, text answers to each other, and a whole host of other cheating ways. To stay on top of cheating, schools are going to need to do more than tape paper to each student's head. lol

Waste of paper? The kind of paper they used was not just a simply coupon bond my paper. Its a hardened one. Which can be reused.

But only so many times. At some point even hardened paper wears out. And since cheating is not limited to looking at other's papers, it wouldn't really solve the problem.

I'm going to take a stab in the dark. I bet a lot of students failed that exam. I wonder what they were saying after class.

We can't implement this in a public school...The educational system in our country needs more discipline. The department of education has been very lenient to the students. They pamper them a lot. Anything that would shame the students is a no no. This will put the teachers in trouble.

Hi. syoti20. Well, if this is what it is going to take to put an end/stop to cheating students, then this is what it will have to take. Sad, but people can bring things on their own selves. I wonder if the teachers plan to put paper on the palms of their hands, being that this is also an old trick of the trade too.

yes, better to implement this to other school, this just another way for those student/s not to cheat or copy to their seatmates.

Wow, if every school does implement this rule in every examination, I bet no cheaters will ever pass the exam. And every student will really try their best to study hard. And by this, the result will be good since all the students will really have knowledge with every discussion for they will already be prepared and have already studied.

I don't think that is a good idea. To lessen cheaters, teachers or exams coordinator should be strict in watching the movements of every students and refrain from going out during the time of examination. In my daughter's school, they divide the class and assigned them in 2 different rooms with assigned exam proctor. But there are still cheaters because these teachers go outside even during the examination time and my daughter hates this.

haha =D Cheaters should always be shamed and humiliated because they are getting results at the expense of others. IF they are caught, they will pull those innocent students along with them as well, just because cheating often involves 2 parties when that's not the case.. haha =D CHeaters be banned from all exams and get a straight 0 for all subjects.. lol =D

The problem with cheaters is that they are only hurting themselves. You can cheat your way all through school but when it comes to applying what you've learned (which will be how to cheat) nothing will apply to what the world wanted you to learn. I guess its a good idea to teach kids the dangers of cheating but I don't know if they will ever stop.

hi syoti I am sorry but this looks likke they are punishing all the kids for the few who cheat. and its inhumane and rather stupid. instead have large enough classrooms with enough seats to do what they do in college. we all sat one seat over from any other person. we did not have to wear blinders in order to take our exams. they are childen not horses for Gods sakes. this is going way too far.

Maybe it won't "lessen cheaters out there" so much as it will 'eliminate the lazy cheaters,' only letting-through the 'ultimate cheaters' (the ones who 'look-up and learn the answers before the test' ... a.k.a. 'studying' )
• Philippines

Yeah, that idea makes children look like horses but that's all right. Many children don't learn (even after they've been reprimanded by their teacher already) and continue cheating. I remember one time in college when I was seating on the last seat on a row by the window during an exam. There were still seats in the middle of the room and the teacher was asking us to occupy the seats. When I was asked, I refused and said that I'm paranoid because having someone sit all around me, it's harder for me to cover my paper. At least at the last seat by the window, I only have to worry 90 degrees unlike the middle seat where I have to worry 360 degrees, lol Anyway, I wish that kind of thing would be implemented. The only anti-cheating method I experienced during school was a folder (like during voting) but it won't work as good as the one on the photo.
