Such a service has grown rapidly in Australia's campus in recent years, and it has gradually made the Australian Federal Ministry of Education determined.
As a new policy proposed by the coalition party in April when it campaigned in April, the new law aimed at cracking down on “cheating services” that provide students with exams and homework will expose these individuals and organizations to up to 2 years in prison and AU$210,000. Fine.
The new law has been reviewed by the Parliament as an amendment to the Higher Education Quality and Standards Institutions Act this year. The draft is not intended for students who use cheating services and only for those who provide cheating services. Of course, students who are found to be cheating will naturally be subject to sanctions for related cheating policies. In addition, it has been suggested that relatives and friends who help students cheat but do not receive remuneration should also be subject to civil penalties.
Prior to this, the students were bombarded with cheat information such as writing, and the unscrupulous cheating provider did not have to bear any consequences.
Researcher Tracey Bretag said that cheating is like a wildfire that spreads across the university. Although the teacher doesn't talk much about academic integrity in the classroom, there are always a lot of cheating people in the assessment test; College students who take the exam to complete their studies will be a risk factor in the future. They have not learned anything.
This so-called "contract cheating" allows students to find another person to complete an assignment for a minimum of $30; they can even specify the score for the assignment; if English is their second Language, these cheating gangs can also make appropriate adjustments based on the pronunciation characteristics of customers in the oral test.
Bretag表示，澳洲校园里的学生笼罩在国内外高达1200多家网站的“合同作弊”服务的宣传之下。根据新法，这些宣传广告将是非法的，无论服务商在世界的哪一个地方运营。澳洲高等教育质量标准局（Teteiary Education Quality and Standards Agency）将有权寻求获得法院命令，封锁对这些网站的访问。
