The third section discusses the importance of prevention in dealing with academic dishonesty and the responsibility for prevention, and provides a chart summarizing strategies for detecting dishonesty and offers prevention strategies. The final section addresses legal issues and administrative procedures related to the resolution of academic dishonesty cases. Appendices examine the development of a program to protect academic integrity and presents a sample academic integrity code. Six case studies involving students caught cheating and the disposition of their cases are also included. A table of court cases which involve academic integrity is also provided.
