Psst, Have You Ever Cheated? A Study of Academic Dishonesty in Sweden
Trost, Kari
Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, v34 n4 p367-376 Aug 2009
It has been reported that academic dishonesty is a prevalent problem that crosses all disciplines at the university level. But, how prevalent is it in Sweden? Little is published in the literature about lying, cheating, and plagiarism amongst Swedish university students. This paper focuses on the frequency of past specific academically dishonest behaviours amongst Swedish University students with consideration to social desirability. The results indicate that although there are variations in frequency of dishonest behaviours amongst university students, some dishonest behaviours are more common than others. Future perspectives are discussed. (Contains 1 figure and 2 tables.)
