A Simple Cheating-Prevention Idea, for Teachers with Students Sitting at Tables

With just two pieces of cardboard and a pair of scissors, you can partition a table which seats four into four sections — one per student. This makes cheating much more difficult, and that’s a good thing for everybody. No tape is needed; each piece of cardboard holds up the other one.

Other materials can be used as well. For one-time use, posterboard is adequate. For something more permanent, wooden boards are recommended.

    This simple design is also a great way to provide a private space for kids at a group table. This is far better than floppy file folders! Thanks, Dr. Pi!
