Attack on Academic Dishonesty: What "Lies" Ahead?
Marshall, Leisa L.; Varnon, Anthony W.
Journal of Academic Administration in Higher Education, v13 n2 p31-40 Fall 2017
The purpose of this study is to apply corporate fraud fighting methods to develop a framework for fighting academic dishonesty in higher education. The evidence in the literature overwhelmingly supports the existence of academic dishonesty in higher education, with increases in admitted cheating over the past several decades and as many as 80 percent admitting to cheating (Auger 2013) and less than five percent of the students indicating that they got caught cheating (Diekhoff et al. 1996). Drawing from specific findings in the literature and positioned from the four fraud fighting methods (prevention, detection, investigation, and follow-up), an academic integrity framework is proposed.
