- Collaboration. "Real world" jobs require people to work together. Shouldn't students start "collaborating" in school? How or when does collaboration become "cheating"?
- Knowledge and skills assessment. Which methods of assessment discourage cheating? Are exams, term papers effective in the assessment of students' knowledge?
- Intellectual dishonesty and licenses (copyright, Creative Commons, open source). Certain licenses encourage "copying" but certainly not cheating.
