CHEATING AS RELATED TO THE SOCIAL SYSTEM IN A UNIVERSITY.
LEWIS, DAVID M.
AN INSTRUMENT WAS DEVELOPED WHICH COULD BE USED TO INVESTIGATE UNIVERSITY STUDENTS' PERCEPTIONS OF SITUATIONS WHICH CONSTITUTE CHEATING. ALSO AN INSTRUMENT WAS DEVELOPED TO INVESTIGATE STUDENTS' PERCEPTION OF THE WILLINGNESS OF FACULTY MEMBERS TO RELATE TO THEM IN A VARIETY OF WAYS AND SITUATIONS. THE PERCEPTION OF TEACHERS AS UNWILLING TO RELATE TO THE STUDENT WAS INTERPRETED AS SOCIAL ISOLATION. SCALOGRAM ANALYSIS (GUTTMAN SCALING) WAS USED TO EVALUATE RESPONSES AND TO DETERMINE WHETHER THE ITEMS USED IN QUESTIONNAIRES WERE CORRECTLY PERCEIVED BY THE RESPONDENTS. EVIDENCE FROM THE STUDY INDICATED THAT THERE WERE STABLE PERCEPTIONS OF THE RELATIVE DEGREE TO WHICH VARIOUS BEHAVIORS CONSTITUTE CHEATING. THE PERCEPTIONS WERE RELATED TO THE SEX OF THE STUDENT AND PERCEPTIONS OF WILLINGNESS OF TEACHERS TO RELATE TO THEM. A HIGH PERCENTAGE OF THOSE MALE STUDENTS WHO ARE SOCIALLY ISOLATED FROM FACULTY MEMBERS CONSIDER MORE SITUATIONS AS NOT CHEATING THAN THOSE STUDENTS NOT ISOLATED FROM THE FACULTY. (JC)
