This book provides a resource for everything educators need to know about classroom cheating. Six chapters include: (1) "What Do We Know About Cheating in the Classroom" (who is cheating and why); (2) "Why is Cheating a Problem?" (e.g., the ubiquity and the consequences of cheating); (3) "How Does Cheating Occur?" (e.g., a taxonomy of cheating and plagiarism); (4) "How Can Cheating Be Detected and Addressed?" (e.g., an introduction to inference and practical tips for detecting cheating on tests and plagiarism); (5) "How Can Cheating Be Prevented?" (e.g., improving classroom assessments, assignments, and environments); and (6) "What Are the Next Steps?" (e.g., challenges and opportunities). Four resources present a glossary, resources used to cheat, resources to help deter cheating, and sample cheating policies and honor codes. Each chapter ends with questions for discussion. (Contains approximately 118 references.) (SM)
