Connections Academy

So I'm not sure if this website is considered "cheating". I used it a couple of times and I know that Connections Academy knows I'm using this since one of the teachers said that they know what I do and how quickly I finish tests. I'm worried if this is cheating and they see me cheating. I also saw a couple of teachers here so I doubt it is but I just need to know just in case.

  1. That depends upon how you use this site. If you don't understand a couple of questions and post your query here, we'll help you understand the question. If you check a few of your answers to make sure you're right, that's not considered cheating either.

    However, if you post questions without telling us what you've done to find the answer, it's cheating. If you ask for answers, it's cheating. If you refuse to read your text and guess at answers, it's cheating.

  5. The assessments at the end of each lesson are open book, open notes... this policy is clearly stated in the course message boards. Coming here is not cheating. Yes, I am a mom and I supervise the learning - I am also a veteran teacher. Knowledge should be given freely, not guarded or hoarded.

  6. Geepers. With this concept, there can be no such thing as plagarism, nor stealing answers. One wonders what the pursuit of knowledge is.
    As a teacher, one needs to love the students, and love the subject, in the quest to develope student thinking processes. It is beyond my understanding, how giving answers to tests to a "student" fits into that. Maybe I am of the Aristotle branch of education, who learned from Plato, who learned from Socates, but giving answers freely is not a part of that. Asking freely given questions is a part of it, but not freely giving the answers.
    Connections Academy is not preparing kids thinking skills if the content they are asking can be found in the open book. We all ask students to use the book to extend what is known into different situations, different problems, differing examples. Honestly, I am shocked a "veteran" teacher would think otherwise, that then freely giving answers to these new situations is not to be limited, and condone that behaviour for her own children.

  8. I am a teacher at CA, and while some of the assessments might be open book or open note, NONE of them are open internet. Using this site is absolutely cheating, it is violating the honor code you and your learning coach signed when you enrolled and any question you post in here is a copyright infringement.

  9. @ LK. I absolutely agree. This is cheating and I am so disappointed to find this. Several of my math students have passed their tests with 100% A and I can now see why :(

    -They did not learn from it, they copied it. If they would apply what they learned, they would benefit much greater than a letter grade.

  10. Hi.. I am a tutor! I think this not a cheating program.. It helps kids.. If they are cheating it is cause you teachers are not teaching right. One of my students that I tutor said that his teacher do not teach so he can understand and that is why he needs my help.. So you bull crappy teachers how bout y'all teach y'all kids right and then call them cheaters!!!

  13. This is cheating IF you are copying answers. If you are using to to find help with answers it’s just asking for help.

  14. @Online Tutor? That is funny. Based on your terrible grammar and ridiculously bad writing, it is obvious you are a middle school student. Please do yourself a favor, call your teacher and do your own work instead of coming here to cheat!

  17. If you are being technical yes it is cheating. But i really doubt that they'll catch you as of now unless they have ways into hacking into your computer and looking at what you do. And besides isn't that illegal XD

  20. it seems like school as a whole is a waste of time for alot of people and i dont think it matters if you cheat in the end people are just trying to earn a rank in society that says they're smart enough to have a job and eat. you "teachers" are just teaching how to memorize information you aren't advancing anyone's "thinking skills" have you ever actually talked to your students? i have because im among them and a lot of them aren't the sharpest tools in the shed but they've got good grades. I've been talked down to by teachers and even my own parents my entire life and school is just getting REALLY old

  21. Ok so, this website is getting abused by immature children on the internet. I am 13 and say that children should do their studies and pay attention, and then they won't have to cheat or post answers. I understand answering one question but kids do wayy too much and post the whole test. And to make it worse other kids give the answers! I am with an online public school and it is sad to see how our society is today. You will grow up to be nothing if you think everything is going to be handed to you. They won't hand you your job you have to WORK for it. Hard workers live a good life. All the kids cheating are irrelevant and immature. You are better then this! Anyone that dislikes this is because they know I'm right. Hate all you want. It's the truth. And if I'm being too mean I apoligize. However I wouldn't have anything to say if it wasn't true!!! SMH at all these kids these days. Thank you to the children that do right in this world! Have a nice day.

  22. Honestly all this really doesn't matter. Your grades don't matter until you get in high school. When you get a job they aren't going to go look back into your middle school grades and be like " You got a f on this test?!" or be like "You cheated on this test?" the only thing that matters is high school and college. Yes, you shouldn't cheat but your grades do not matter as much as you think in middle school. High school does matter. It affects your careers and college.

  23. I am a teacher at Connections Academy, and I can assure you that using this website is cheating. The honor code is very clear that you sign at the beginning of the year that all assessments are supposed to be the student's own work without having open book, open notes, open Internet, etc.
