suspended from this site right
at least from this site, hard to tell what your school will do :)
ya does the schools even use this site
i hear there are teachers that roam the outer wastelands of the OpenStudy just lying in wait :)
haha what is the outer waste lands lol
How does this effect the ones who answer the questions. I mean not a very big diffrence in swapping answers and get some higher educated to answer the questions? I sepose the mods mostly would like if we answered like if it was to a tuition - that we only provide clues and explain general theory?
We're more concerned about the questions along the lines of: "Anyone else doing CA 9th grade? Message me." "Heeelp meeee! I'm taking CA Unit 4 Lesson 5 test right now and I neeeeed answers!!!!" And responses along the lines of: 1. Cut and pasted copies of graded tests which are essentially answer keys 2. Lists of answers such as 1a, b2, 3c, 4d... The immediate, no warning suspension applies equally to those who request and those who give answers. The people who just pop one question at a time might, for a first offense, be warned; else they will be suspended too. As notes in response to your questions, we have had instances where teachers have, by searching OpenStudy, caught their students exchanging answers on the site. Though in those cases the teachers have all taught in ordinary classrooms and none of the coursework has been distributed online. With the online classes (i.e., the FLVS students and the Connection Academy students), it is more efficient to log IP addresses of users who use the site to cheat. The IP addresses are almost certainly the same as those the user logs in to their school under, so by giving the school our logged IP addresses it is very easy for them to track down and take their own actions against offenders.
SO what about the people who just help with answers but do not go to the schools other people do? Because I'm just a nerd from public school who likes to help people out.
There is a big difference between helping people out (i.e. teaching and tutoring them) and providing answers to tests that they have posted online. We encourage helping; we strongly discourage cheating.
Well What sucks is there are so many sites that others use i only ask a question if i desperatly cant find the answer and im not even connections academy
@Meanmatter You can still ask a specific question if you are truely lost. We would just provide you with clues and some theory that might help you out... So to say we help YOU (can not express how important it is) to find the answer... we don't just give the answer away. Ofcuase this can be a bit harder for the ones who want to help aswell, but I guess all have to swallow the bitter pill...
I understand that the purpose of this website is to " tutor " people. I believe there are some questions that you can help people out with without just giving them the answers. But what about questions that are direct ? What I mean by that is...questions such as : Who is the first president of the U.S. ? or Who killed Lincoln ? How are you supposed to explain this to the person asking, without giving them the answer ?
Those can bye directly searched up on google. And you could always tell them to read there textbook because we all know it's somewhere in there.
Anything can be found on the internet, you just have to know where to look.
99 % of these questions can be found on the internet. People just want to be able to get the answers without looking. I understand that. So we just tell people to research it ? Because it is on the internet. That would mean not answering any questions and just telling them to search.
I'm not a mod. But if anyone want answers and is just to lazy to look. They have serious issues.
You have to be able to communicate with the askers of questions such as "Who is the first president of the U.S." in order to understand what it is about the question that they might really be needing help with. To me, such a question reeks of being to lazy to either read the material, or to google it. If all you are doing when answering a post is simply handing over an answer that has no study/teaching value to it, then the vision and mission of this site has not been met.
Then Ask Questions, No 1 has ever asked.....is the Only option left.....
this is a great idea.
If we weren't using this for any form of studying answers, or homework, why would we be using this anyway?
"Swapping" and "studying/help" are not synonymous here. You may use the site for studying. People may guide you on how to obtain a solution or the background to help memorize something. That is all studying/help and fine. You may NOT use this site for simply providing the answers to assignments. Or more appropriate to what this topic was about, exchanging ENTIRE answer keys for homework assignments. That is not 'helping' or 'studying', that is 'swapping answers.' But this thread is over a year old, closed and dead. I do not know what brought you here to make that comment, but this reminder has long been dismissed to be discussed by now...
little butt hurt, bud?
You asked a fair question, and I provided you a fair response. Take it as you wish, but I presume we are done here if you have nothing constructive to add.
