The Relation between Academic Motivation and Cheating
Anderman, Eric M.; Koenka, Alison C.
Theory Into Practice, v56 n2 p95-102 2017
Academic cheating occurs frequently in schools. Cheating is a deliberative act, in that students make a conscious decision to engage in academic dishonesty. Students' achievement goals, which are malleable, often guide the ways that students make such decisions. Educators can incorporate various instructional practices and support academic policies that enhance positive motivational beliefs (e.g., mastery goals), potentially reducing academic dishonesty.
