The spring 2006 Texas Tech University coupon book is being passed out on campus today as classes begin.
In the table of contents near the end, current coupon book recipients can see there should be a page between the Texas Tech Book Store and Vertex, for “Unique Term Papers.com.”
The distributor is now tearing this coupon out of the book before giving it to students, but here is the original:
Ready to start a new semester? Those wanting to profit from easy digital dishonesty certainly are. In the environment of pay-to-plagiarize, advanced planning has financial rewards. According to the website, term paper costs are:
7+ days advance notice – $15 per page
5-6 days advance notice – $18 per page
3-4 days advance notice – $21 per page
2 days advance notice – $24 per page
1 day advance notice – $27 per page
Overnight Service – $30 per page
Do you know anyone who is writing for businesses like this one? That would make an interesting podcast discussion. My related question to teachers and faculty would be: How are you authentically assessing your students this semester? Hopefully it is not primarily through a term paper assignment the student could farm out to a 3rd party company. Students need to both learn to write well and practice writing regularly. In some ways, online instruction which includes a large amount of individual and group discussion can lend itself to being a more authentic learning environment than many classrooms where the instructor is lecturing to a passive audience of students.
