She admitted copying answers from the student in front of her. It was a multiple-choice test and she, by some miracle, guessed correctly on 12 straight 4-choice questions! (HAH!) Major problem with that argument was that the copier had form B while the one in front had form A. After questioning the innocent party (the one copied from) and dismissing her from the classroom, the offender broke down crying..... She knew she had been caught... "I don't want to get in trouble...." she said as she cried. Question is, what could be done? A veteran teacher told me to talk to admin and get their opinion..... I thinking along the lines of making her write a letter of apology to me and to the one she copied from stating why what she did was wrong. But what about the test score? Should I give a zero and make her re-take and then average? Forget the zero and just have her re-take? Suggestions?
