Cheating by students is a serious problem that needs to be dealt with effectively by college teachers. This paper describes how to guard against cheating, how to detect cheating, and what to do when cheating is detected. Teachers should keep thorough records, closely monitor exams, use a dynamic testing strategy, and use multiple tests. Effectively dealing with the problems of cheating are costly in terms of time and effort. Each individual teacher is encouraged to select a combination of preventative measures to reduce the risk of cheating. Each cheating incident should be referred to judiciary or administrative hearings.
