Dishonesty in Academic Environments: The Influence of Peer Reporting Requirements.
McCabe, Donald L.; Trevino, Linda Klebe; Butterfield, Kenneth D.
Journal of Higher Education, v72 n1 p29-45 Jan-Feb 2001
Student codes of conduct often encourage or require students to report observed acts of academic dishonesty. This research investigated the influence of such requirements on academic dishonesty and the peer reporting of such dishonesty. Results suggested that stronger requirements generally lead to more reporting and less cheating. However, the overall culture of academic integrity appears to be more important. (Author/EV)
