I came across this article on Wired about the problem of students plagiarising term papers from the Internet. This got me thinking about the current education system and our archaic methods of educating a student and testing his/her knowledge on the subject with exams, term papers, etc. Are there any alternative methods to evaluate a student's performance? Or are things fine the way they are? Are there any creative, practical ways to circumvent this problem, instead of the usual 'crackdown'? Any educators on Metafilter doing anything differently?
