"Unusual amount of cheating suspected at Stanford University"

"An unusually high number of students at Stanford University are suspected of cheating during the most recent term, putting faculty members and administrators of the prestigious institution on alert," says AP

University Provost John Etchemendy sent a letter to faculty members highlighting what he called "troubling allegations" that stem from "a smattering of concerns from a number of winter courses," the San Jose Mercury News

University spokeswoman Lisa Lapin declined to discuss details with SJMN, such as the course or grade level of the students, but she said such concerns are routine. She says that in the 2013-2014 academic year, 83 students violated the honor code.

In the most recent term, SJMN reported that one instructor believes that 20 percent of students in a large introductory course may have cheated.
