Factors Associated with Cheating Among College Students: A Review.
Whitley, Bernard E., Jr.
Research in Higher Education, v39 n3 p235-74 Jun 1998
Studies (n=107) of prevalence and correlates of college student cheating are reviewed. Strongest correlates of cheating included having moderate expectations of success, past cheating, poor study conditions, positive attitudes about cheating, perceiving that social norms support cheating, and anticipating rewards for success. A model of antecedents of cheating is proposed and implications for identifying at-risk students are examined. (Author/MSE)
