Boehm, Pamela J.; Justice, Madeline; Weeks, Sandy

The purpose of the study is to identify best practice initiatives that contribute to academic integrity and reduce scholastic dishonesty in higher education. Chief academic affairs officers (CAOs) or provosts at four year public and private colleges/universities and community colleges in the United States were surveyed. Four initiatives were found to be significant in reducing scholastic dishonesty: (a) faculty training, (b) effective classroom management strategies, c) clear definitions and examples of cheating and (d) placing an "XF" on official transcripts of students found cheating. Significant differences were found between private institutions and community colleges in two initiatives: (a) encouragement of more collaboration on homework and (b) effective classroom management strategies.
