Perceptions of Academic Honesty in Online vs. Face-to-Face Classrooms
Spaulding, Michael
Journal of Interactive Online Learning, v8 n3 p183-198 Win 2009
As online instruction continues to evolve, instructors continue to struggle with the perceived growing problem of academic dishonesty. This study will expand the literature regarding academic integrity, particularly in the online learning environment by examining student perceptions of academic integrity related to both online and face-to-face course formats. A survey was administered which measured the frequency students participated in academic misconduct and the instances in which students believed other students participated in academic misconduct. This study involved two research questions: 1) Do differences exist between online vs. face-to-face students' perception of the academic integrity of their own behavior based on course type? 2) Do differences exist between online and face-to-face students' perceptions of other students' behavior based on course type. (Contains 3 tables.)
