  •  I see this somewhat differently (none)
    from you. I was an organic chemistry TA; now this is a time-consuming and demanding course with weekly quizzes and homework assignments, lab reports etc. I inevitably would see the weaker students copying from a student who knew more about what was going on. The zeroes I gave hurt the weaker students more than the stronger students, and I let all involved know that they had violated university policy and if it was repeated the penalties would be more severe. I only saw one repeat out of three years of teaching. I don't think there are "born cheaters", mostly they are just young, lazy, scared, mostly a combo of all these, actually.
