## Reflection: Routines and Procedures Simple Harmonic Motion Test - Section 3: Simple Harmonic Motion Unit Test

Our latest challenge in dealing with students cheating is that they store information in their calculators. This information can be anything from programs that perform calculations for them to lists of equations and constants. As a learning community, we thought we were combatting this by forcing students to clear their memory on their calculators prior to starting a test. Unfortunately, students then brought 2 calculators. So, after showing the teacher that the memory was cleared they would slip the dummy calculator into their backpacks and pull out the real calculator. The teacher was never aware of the swaps, since students were making the switch while the teacher was checking the next calculator.
