Attitudes of Igbo High School Students Towards Cheating in Examinations
Ugwuegbu, Denis Chimaeze E.
West African Journal of Education, 19, 3, 485-94, Oct 75
A total of 240 students read transcripts of a case against a student who stole his examination, in violation of a specific Nigerian government decree directed at students, and then rated the person on several items. Results showed that girls violated the decree from anxiety over failure; boys, from anxiety over failure and motivation to achieve. Perceived consequence had no effect. (Author/LBH)
