Abstract: Case Vignette: The Class That (Probably) Cheated: Professor Dill's Dilemma. After an exam in a class of 160 students, 7 students independently approached Professor Dill to inform him that "massive cheating" had occurred in the back of the room. Reports of the number of involved students ranged from 8 to 15. None of the students, however, was willing to name names. Professor Dill asked his teaching assistant, who was walking the aisles during the exam, if she saw anything. She replied that some students seemed uncomfortable and moved around in their seats, but she did not observe any cheating.
