Cheating on Tests: How To Do It, Detect It, and Prevent It.
Cizek, Gregory J.
The problems of cheating on tests and what to do about it are explored, beginning with information on the methods used to cheat. Methods to detect cheating, circumstances that promote cheating, and ways to respond at the individual and institutional levels are outlined. The chapters are: (1) "An Introduction to Cheating: The Wrong and the Short of It"; (2) "Frequency and Perceptions of Cheating"; (3) "How To Cheat: A Compendium of Methods"; (4) "Cheating in Postgraduate and Professional Contexts"; (5) "Cheating in Other Countries and Cultures"; (6) "Correlates of Cheating"; (7) "Detecting Cheating on Tests"; (8) "Responding to Cheating"; (9) "Deterring Cheating: An Ounce of Prevention"; (10) "Legal issues and Cheating"; and (11) "Cheating and the Ethos of Testing." Three appendixes discuss statistical methods for detecting cheating, academic integrity policy models, and a sample due process policy. (Contains 24 tables, 8 figures, and 406 references.) (SLD)
