Over a third of US teens cheat in class on their mobiles

35% of American teenagers have admitted to cheating at school or college by using their mobile phones – and more than half (52%) of all teenagers have used the internet to cheat. Those are the results from a survey published by Common Sense Media, a US-based non-profit organisation that rates and reviews media and entertainment based on child development criteria.

23% of respondents said that storing notes for a test on a mobile phone wasn’t cheating at all, while 20% said the same about texting friends about answers during tests. [Press release]
