An Update on Academic Dishonesty in the College Classroom
Moberg, Chris; Sojka, Jane Z.; Gupta, Ashok
Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, v19 n1 p149-176 2008
The authors' research was designed to identify the cheating strategies college students are most likely to use and who is most likely to use them--men versus women, business majors versus other majors, and students with higher GPAs versus students with lower GPAs. In a survey of 372 undergraduates at a large, Midwestern university, students self-reported on 18 cheating behaviors ranging from minor infractions such as "copied a homework assignment" to more serious activities such as "taken a test for someone else." Results suggest that business majors and students with lower GPAs may be more likely to engage in dishonest academic behaviors. (Contains 4 tables.)
