College Cheating: Ten Years Later.
Diekhoff, George M.; And Others
Research in Higher Education, v37 n4 p487-502 Aug 1996
A follow-up study of college students' (n=474) cheating behaviors looked at extent of cheating, attitudes toward it, characteristics of cheaters/noncheaters, effectiveness of deterrents, and attitude changes from 1984-94. A significant rise in cheating was found, but with less rationalization. An additional 12 variables discriminating cheaters emerged. Strongest deterrents were embarrassment and fear of punishment; peer disapproval was least effective. (Author/MSE)
