And with this certain teacher he would post the answers to his own test while his class was taking it. On his website the students could see how they did afterwards. But him being extremely clever he put bogus answers on the website and therefore the students received the wrong answers from their friends. And he could easily could pick out those who had the correct wrong answers. “Go Terps”
