Being online is not only detrimental to students learning ability of math courses but also, with high volume of failing test averages there needs to be some type of curve. If the majority of a class gets below a 65, there is something to be said about the test and or the teaching approaches. Math courses are very lucrative to a large portion of majors and will hold back students from their core courses. Math is undeniably a very important subject to many students and majors. If an exam is not able to be passed by students who are engaged, completing all assignments, scoring well on quizzes, and studying there is another issue within the system. Although being online is not ideal for students or administrators the testing environment is not the same for every student. For this to be ignored because of a small portion of students caught with potential academic dishonest, is not fair to the majority who is putting in maximum effort. A curve should be considered for tests with low averages because ultimately, students who are putting in the effort are not solely to blame for their low grade. The few students who do score exceptionally well, do not reflect the majority and may depend on their testing environment and backgrounds.
