New data released from onlinecollege.org doesn't seem to bode well for Idaho's pending education reforms. The data shows across-the-board increases in cheating when online classes are factored in.

From an article on the Huffington Post:

In short, onlinecollege.org found that 73 percent of online students admit to cheating, compared with 56 percent for blended learning. And in a study of 635 undergraduate and graduate students, 32.7 percent of online students admitted to cheating, while 32.1 percent admitted to cheating in a live class.

Not content just to be naysayers, onlinecollege.org also released some suggestions for teachers on how to curb cheating in online courses. They can be found at the bottom of the infographic detailing the study.
