Over 600 students in an MBA capstone course at the University of Central Florida sat down to take a midterm exam late one fall. Two days later, it was clear to Richard Quinn, the professor of the ciass, that many of those students had cheated on the exam. Research showed that approximately 200 of the students had access to the test bank from which the exam questions were drawn. Quinn was extremely disappointed in his class, especially since he had a speclal section in his syllabus that contained a set of ethical guidelines related to student behavior. He announced that all of the students in the class would have to retake the midterm exam, which would contain an entirely new set of questions. In addition, he told the class that although he was very close to finding out exactly who had cheated on the exam, he was willing to make them the following offer: If the cheating students would turn themselves in, they would not be punished, as long as they were willing to take a four-hour course on ethics. Quinn had arrived at this solution after discussing the matter with the university ethics committee. When asked about the incident, several of the students in the class said that they heard Professor Quinn say that he would be preparing the tests for the class himself. Thoy assumed that this meant he would not be using a prepublished test bank. Thus, when they recelved the test bank, they thought that it was a study guide. When they found out that Professor Quinn had used a test bank, they questioned Professor Quinn's ethics.
