Academic Integrity Matters. NASPA Monograph Series.
Burnett, Dana D., Ed.; Rudolph, Lynn, Ed.; Clifford, Karen O., Ed.
The problem of academic dishonesty is festering on campuses across the nation. On most campuses a student-managed honor system is the sole mechanism for enforcing the integrity of the academic process. This monograph examines the many perspectives the problem presents and is designed to be used by a broad cross-section of the institutional community. It includes the following chapters: (1) "Creating a Campus Climate for Academic Integrity" (Jon C. Dalton); (2) "Students' Perceptions of Academic Integrity: Curtailing Violations" (Wanda Kaplan and Phyllis Mable); (3) "The Academic Dishonesty of College students: The Prevalence of the Problem and Effective Educational Prevention Programs" (William L. Kibler); (4) "The Classroom Environment and Academic Integrity: A Behavioral Science Perspective" (Bernard E. Whitley, Jr. and Mary E. Kite); (5) "A Comprehensive Approach for Creating a Campus Climate that Promotes Academic Integrity" (Lynn Rudolph and Linda Timm); (6) "When Institutions and Their Faculty Address Issues of Academic Dishonesty: Realities and Myths" (Donald D. Gehring); (7) "The Effect of Institutional Policies and Procedures on Academic Integrity" (Donald L. McCabe and Gary M. Pavela); (8) "Academic Integrity and Campus Climate at Small Colleges" (Karen O. Clifford); (9) "Can the Academic Integrity of Cost-Effective Distance Learning Course Offerings be Protected?" (Mary Elisabeth Randall); (10) "The Impact of Technology on Academic Integrity" (Harold Goldsmith); (11) "Conclusions." (Contains 242 references.) (JDM)
