What is Contract Cheating?

Essay mills are increasingly being used by, and indeed are promoting their services to, students. This is when a student pays money in order to engage someone to write an essay or other assessment for them. Contract cheating can also include a student asking a friend or family member to write their work for them, or downloading an essay from a website.
