If the teacher keeps letting the student get away with it the student will not learn anything and most likely cheat their way through the class. Positive reinforcements are always up lifting and can not only show the student that they are not learning or benefiting from cheating but that they will be successful in life from what they learn.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
