    With most of our classes, it isn't possible to seat students at single desks, so I think they could copy.
  2. I agree. Contacting the school would be the best action. I've only ever had someone blatantly cheat in my class once, and appropriate punishment was issued. It sends out the wrong messages, the wrong example to follow.
  3. My room is quite small, so when we do an assessed task, we usually go into the hall and use the 1 per desk seating arrangements. It works quite well.
