Individual and Contextual Influences on Academic Dishonesty: A Multicampus Investigation.
McCabe, Donald L.; Trevino, Linda Klebe
Research in Higher Education, v38 n3 p379-96 Jun 1997
A survey of 1,793 students at nine state universities found cheating was influenced by a number of characteristics of individuals, including age, sex, and grade point average, and contextual factors, including level of cheating among peers, peer disapproval of cheating, fraternity/sorority membership, and perceived severity of penalties for cheating. Peer disapproval was the strongest influential factor. (Author/MSE)
