Paullet, Karen; Chawdhry, Adnan A.; Douglas, David M.; Pinchot, Jamie
Information Systems Education Journal, v14 n4 p45-53 Jul 2016
Online Education is growing as it provides an added convenience to students, especially ones who have life circumstances that prevent them from attending traditional classes. With this growing trend, faculty and universities are facing increased risks with validating student identities in online courses and combatting unethical student behavior. This exploratory study of 75 faculty members will examine faculty perceptions of academic dishonesty specific to validating student identities along with discussing techniques used to combat academic dishonesty. Additionally, it is important to understand how faculty perceptions correlate with demographic characteristics and their experiences in order for administrators and universities to effectively develop techniques to mitigate the risks associated with academic dishonesty in online courses.
