Cheating on Multiple-Choice Exams: Monitoring, Assessment, and an Optional Assignment
Nath, Leda; Lovaglia, Michael
College Teaching, v57 n1 p3-8 Win 2009
Academic dishonesty is unethical. Exam cheating is viewed as more serious than most other forms (Pincus and Schmelkin 2003). The authors review the general cheating problem, introduce a program to conservatively identify likely cheaters on multiple-choice exams, and offer a procedure for handling likely cheaters. Feedback from students who confess and complete the assignment is positive.
