A Multivariate Approach to the Study of Variables Associated with Student Use of Deception.
Oles, Henry J.
This study was designed to identify some of the variables that may be associated with student use of deception. Data for a broad introductory analysis of the problem was collected on 238 third, fourth, and fifth grade students, during the second half of the 1970-71 school year, who were enrolled in a school using Individually Prescribed Instruction (IPI). Data was collected only for the IPI math program. During a four month period, a measure was obtained for each student of the degree to which they used deception in self-scoring their own math work pages. It involved deliberately inserting incorrect but plausible answers in the students' self-scoring keys and then the careful evaluation of the way in which each student handled the error. The results of this study indicated some evidence of inconsistencies between the student's attitude toward misusing self-scoring opportunities and their actual behavior. (Author/BW)
