Columbia J-School: Exams Were Filed Too Fast for Profs, Students Say

Our reporter Gillian Reagan is up at Columbia, outside the Lecture Hall where students have been confronted for cheating on an etchics exam. Some students have now left the session. The journalism school administration has asked its journalism students not to talk to journalists. No students confessed to cheating at the exam. The administration received a tip-off email. The activity the administration found suspicious is that the test—which is a take-home short essay test—was returned by at least one student in only 32 minutes.
