Harvard to Release Update of Probe Into Finals Cheating

Harvard University said it completed its investigation of plagiarism on a final exam last year and would provide an update after students and faculty return from winter break next week.

About 125 Harvard undergraduates who took a popular government class were under scrutiny for alleged plagiarism on their take-home final. Harvard’s Administrative Board has informed each student “of the disposition of his or her individual case,” the school said in an e-mailed statement.

Harvard, based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, has called the suspected plagiarism the most widespread cheating scandal in living memory. Students may have collaborated or copied answers, officials have said. About 20 students and graduates went to the media to defend their actions, saying that such behavior was tacitly condoned by the professor and teaching fellows in the class, which they identified as Introduction to Congress.

“The cases were exceptionally complex and involved far more students than any other set of cases in recent memory, requiring great amounts of time and effort from the staff and faculty involved,” Harvard said in the statement.
