MEASURING INPUTS, NOT OUTPUTS. The state's ethics board doesn't like people rushing through their online ethics training.

"The state feels that if you take the test too quickly you must have cheated, which apparently must be unethical," Paul Stoddard, president of the Faculty Senate, said.

NIU President John Peters said 10 percent of employees across the state failed to pass the state exam, even though most answered all the questions correctly.

Peters said the discrepancy occurs when the employee finishes the test in less than 10 minutes.

As King noted when fast test-takers got flagged at Southern Illinois, this is ethics, not rocket science.
