Academic Dishonesty in a Global Educational Market: A Comparison of Hong Kong and American University Business Students
Chapman, Kenneth J.; Lupton, Robert A.
International Journal of Educational Management, v18 n7 p425-435 2004
Academic dishonesty in post-secondary education is a widespread, insidious and global problem. Business educators hosting foreign students locally and teaching abroad more than ever need to understand the nuances and attitudes of different student populations and how these differences may manifest themselves in a course. This research contributes to the growing albeit still scanty body of literature demonstrating that significant cross-national differences exist regarding students' attitudes, beliefs and propensities toward cheating. This study compares US and Hong Kong university business students on three areas: cheating behaviors and perceptions, relationships between academic dishonesty and gender, and prediction of academic dishonesty. A total of 443 usable surveys were collected in the USA and 622 in Hong Kong. Statistically significant differences are presented followed by discussion and implications. (Contains 2 tables.)
