CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) -- Harvard University is investigating whether dozens of undergraduate students cheated on a take-home exam last spring.
School officials said they discovered students may have shared answers or plagiarized on a final exam. They declined to release the name of the class, the students' names or the exact number being investigated, citing privacy laws.
University officials said the undergraduate class had a minimum of 250 students and possible cheating was discovered in roughly half the take-home exams.
A Harvard spokesman said he knows of no incidents in recent memory of possible cheating at the university on this scale.
