International Journal of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, v26 n1 p26-36 2014
This study examined teaching assistants' (TAs) preparation for, attitudes towards, and experiences with academic dishonesty at a public research university. Of 470 TAs, 184 (39%) completed the survey instrument. The major findings of the study were: (a) TAs were more satisfied with their informal than their formal preparation for dealing with academic dishonesty of their students, (b) over 90% of TAs received some form of formal training dealing with academic integrity, (c) a large percentage of TAs have failed to address cheating incidents, and (d) TAs displayed conflicting attitudes towards issues of academic dishonesty. Recommendations for improved practice and further research are provided.
