did you change wrong answers to right answers when grading a classmates paper?

Lazy teachers would do this. I never cheated for my friends. I once misgraded one though and the kid cried really hard about it. Odd memory.

I sure did. That was how my buddy and I got through 7th grade English class. It wasn’t until 9th grade or that I understood the details of the subject (semi colons, participles, etc.).

It was just a Canadian public school.
Canadian public school here too. Depended on the teachers. I had some that did this all the time. Others that never did it. Teacher would collect all the papers and then pass them back out again rather than "pass to your neighbour" or whatever, so it was very unlikely to get the paper of one of your friends.

Never changed an answer for someone else. I don't think that it would have ever crossed my mine to change an answer for someone else. Why would I do that?

No, but I had a classmate who would yell "Good Job!" at me across the room when I got one right and "Sorry!" when I got one wrong.

On multiple choice/true or false? Nah.
I had one or two English teachers that didn't even want to grade short response quizzes, and I remember being pretty lenient with those

No, never.
I graded everyone's history tests in high school and I didn't even look at the names until I finished grading.

Never. Also, one of my daughters is a teacher aide for one of her credits and she grades a lot of papers for the teacher. She's been threatened by some of the students because "she failed" them.

I think I've only been in one class where we would grade each others' tests and homework, but because the work we'd be grading is usually by the person seating in front or behind us and because we were friends, we'd usually "give ourselves pats on our backs" as it were.

No never. I would maybe overlook one or two wrong ones but never changed work.

There was a group of girls that would change my right answers to wrong ones or use a dark marker to mark over my correct answers. Really fucked up my education for a couple of years.
