From essay mills, a coarse lesson on cheating - latimes

Hello Mr Ariely
I can only say that you havent looked into this issue deep enough. I know an office colleague who has an engineering degree, and he also writes part time for one of these essay mills. I have looked at some of his papers, in subjects such as engineering, chemistry and mathematics. I can tell you that those are top drawer papers, as obviously they would be – this guy has an engineer’s grasp of the subjects. And he says that he receives a steady stream of orders, many of them repeat ones, since most of his clients get high grades in their courses and come back to him.

Here is the description of the task that we gave the four essay mills:

1) When you see a website that seems , it probably is. For example, if they say they have hundreds of writers with PhDs, they are probably lying. Although there are writers who have PhDs, most of them generally do not work for large essay mills. Such companies generally have seedy reputations and seasoned writers either work alone or work for much more reputable companies.

And it warns of the damage that can be caused by the mis-use of "online essay mills".

Professors in general are concerned about essay mills and their effect on learning, but not knowing exactly what they provide, I wasn't sure how concerned to be. So together with my lab manager Aline Grüneisen, I decided to check the services out. We ordered a typical college term paper from four different essay mills. The topic of the paper? Cheating.It's comforting in a way that the technological revolution has not yet solved students' problems. They still have no other option but to actually work on their papers (or maybe cheat in the old-fashioned way and copy from friends). But I do worry about the existence of essay mills and the signal that they send to our students.
