Dartmouth fa cadere le accuse contro gli studenti di medicina accusati di barare online

“Mi sono scusato con gli studenti per quello che hanno passato e credo che l'archiviazione delle accuse sia il miglior percorso da seguire,” Lo ha detto mercoledì il preside della Geisel School of Medicine Duane Compton in una e-mail.

The charges and discipline won’t be on the students’ permanent records, scrisse.

The school is providing students with a wide variety of resources to support them and maintain their academic and professional progress … We will learn from this and do better.


New policies will be implemented at the Ivy League school to rebuildthe trust we recognize has been lost among some students during this process,” according to Compton.

The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education had criticized Dartmouth’s investigation into the alleged cheating as flawed.

In a statement shared with The Post on Thursday, Foundation Program Officer Alex Morey said the college needed policies to protect student rights.

Dartmouth’s fresh commitment to ‘rebuilding trust’ among the students it unfairly accused in this case should start with promising a fair process to all future students who may find themselves facing a similar misconduct allegation,” Morey said.

When it comes to trust, due process provides it: Giving everyone involved confidence that when a school reaches a result in a misconduct investigation, it’s a fair one.

The school accused 17 students of cheating after secretly monitoring their online activity, accusing them of accessing an online platform called Canvas while taking virtual exams during the Pandemia di covid-19.

Seven of the accused had charges dismissed quickly but the remaining 10 still had cases against them and faced possible discipline including expulsion.

Critics said the school was misreading data it used in the probe that showed online activity for the entire school year. Students may have been logged into the system on their phones while taking tests on another device, critics said.

Protests on campus followed as the scandal drew national headlines.

Some of the students said they admitted to the accusations in the immediate aftermath because they were advised by the Office of Student Affairs that students who do so receive less severe penalties, the letter stated.
