    Of course there are cases of that, where one student is capable and someone takes advantage of them.

    I remember the scene in the movie "Working Girl" with Melanie Griffith and Sigourney Weaver. Melanie Griffith plays the "dumb" uneducated secretary to Weaver's high-powered executive. But the secretary is the one who has the great idea. (Okay, I don't remember this real well...) but the gist of it is, someone asks Weaver how she came up with this brilliant idea, and she has no construct for it at all. The Griffith pipes in the with her story of the whole evolution of the idea. Obviously SHE is the one who knows all the answers, did all the thinking.

    When there is a way to separate them, this type of questioning would work.

    For my students, they are all wrong. And I guess it would be good to know if one was "innocent" but I have a hard time believing any of them really are.
