Recruits likely used the confidential information to narrow their studies and memorize material they knew would be on a test, according to the statement.

So if I told a lower classman "There will be question on the exam about a flashing red light. The answer to that means you treat the flashing red light as a stop sign.", that would be cheating? Give me a break.

am I reading this right that practice tests are cheating?
because every POST prep course in MN is taking a practice POST test. that IS the course, the POST approved course, at the POST approved college.

Time will tell. I am confident, however, that the state patrol investigating those they work with, or will work with will not affect the quality of the investigation or their findings. I am also equally confident that nothing that could be construed as dishonest could have been taking place, after all, the recruits must have been vetted, lie detectored, psych evaluated, etc. by the time they arrived at the academy and deemed to be of the highest integrity.

They shared material from a study guide? That's cheating?

When I attended study gides had to be handed in and approved by the TAC before being distributed to the class. We worked on them collectively in study groups after hours and were quite often very detailed.

But with that said they were study guides from provided materials and not answers written down and memorized from the test themselves. The tests used to be a mixture of multiple choice and short answer.

If the recruits somehow got actual test answers, then hang em high...

WSP attracts a lot of weirdos for some reason--though the ones I've known didnt make it.

Recruits are still taught the basics of police work, but with less military protocol and more emphasis on employing de-escalation techniques, adhering to constitutional requirements and treating citizens with respect and dignity.

I'm betting that's the part they all cheated on.
