Students cheating on tests is nothing new for a teacher. Back in the day, students used to bring in chits, write on their hands, and even pass on an answer or two through whispers to a friend, but it seems like these methods have turned stale now. With the introduction of new and smarter devices to aid a child’s cheating investigations, things have gotten rather interesting.
Students In North Carolina Cheat On A Test With Artificial Intelligence
A college professor from North Carolina recently observed some of his students’ sneaky behaviour. The professor was concerned after he caught some of his students using ChatGPT to pass on the tests. For those who are not tech-savvy, ChatGPT is a relatively new computer software chatbot. The bot can swiftly take in information and give out written information about a variety of topics.
The technologically advanced bot was released by OpenAI and has now been issued to the public for use. In a chat with The New York Post, Professor Darren Hick of the Philosophy Department at Furman University shared that the academia was rather surprised by the modern ways of the students and said , “As soon as I reported this on Facebook, my [academic] friends said, Yeah, I caught one too.”
Darren had instructed the class last month to whip out a 500-word essay on two topics. The instructions were to write essays on the 18th-century philosopher David Hume and analyse the paradox of horror, writing about why people get enjoyment out of something that scares them.
