Changes in Academic Dishonesty among MIS Majors between 1999 and 2004
Brown, Bob S.; Weible, Rick
Journal of Computing in Higher Education, v18 n1 p116-134 Sep 2006
A questionnaire on academic dishonesty was administered to management information systems majors at an eastern state university in 1999 and 2004. The often-cited proposition that the level of student academic dishonesty among college and university students is increasing was unsupported. While the level of participation in one practice increased between 1999 and 2004, the level decreased for three practices. Little difference was found in the reasons for participation. It was discovered that both participation and reasons for participation were much more dependent on the student characteristics of GPA, gender, and class rank in 2004 than in 1999, suggesting that efforts to reduce student academic dishonesty among MIS majors need to be more focused on particular types of students.
