Honesty, Cheating, and Character in College
Miller, Christian
Journal of College and Character, v14 n3 p213-222 Aug 2013
Most college faculty care about the characters of their students, especially when it comes to questions of honesty. But can students today be trusted not to cheat when completing papers and exams, and not to do so for the right reasons? In section one of this article, the author reviews some of the leading research on cheating behavior, and in section two he does the same for cheating motivation. In section three, he then draws some implications from this research, both about what faculty can typically expect the characters of their students to be like when it comes to cheating, and what colleges might try to do to help foster character improvement in this area of their students' lives.
