Kreitzer, Rebecca J.; Sweet-Cushman, Jennie – Journal of Academic Ethics, 2022
Student evaluations of teaching are ubiquitous in the academe as a metric for assessing teaching and frequently used in critical personnel decisions.

In the past two decades, individual explanations of scientific misconduct ('bad apples') have increasingly given way to systemic explanations ('bad systems'). Where did this interest in systemic factors (publication pressure, competition for research funding) come from? Given that research ethicists often present their interventions as responses…

Denney, Valerie; Dixon, Zachary; Gupta, Aman; Hulphers, Eric – Journal of Academic Ethics, 2021
Scholarship on faculty and student perceptions of plagiarism is plagued by a vast, scattered constellation of perspectives, context, and nuance. Cultural, disciplinary, and institutional subtitles, among others in how plagiarism is defined and perspectives about it tested obfuscate consensus about how students and faculty perceive and understand…

Dixon, Zachary; George, Kelly – Journal of Academic Ethics, 2021
This paper reports on a study of crowd-sourcing 'study aid' web platforms. Students are sharing completed academic coursework through a growing network of 'study aid' web platforms like CourseHero.com. These websites facilitate the crowd-sourced exchange of coursework, and effectively support plagiarism. However, virtually no data exists…

Kapoor, Hansika; Kaufman, James C. – Journal of Academic Ethics, 2021
Students display resistance in the classroom in numerous ways, often in the form of academic misconduct. Some argue that resistance can reflect cleverness and creativity, rather than apathy. This investigation aimed to develop a psychometric tool to examine classroom resistance as well as identify individual and situational determinants of the…
