Cheating in Academic Institutions: A Decade of Research

Cheating in Academic Institutions: A Decade of Research This article reviews 1 decade of research on cheating in academic institutions. This research demonstrates that cheating is prevalent and that some forms of cheating have increased dramatically in the last 30 years. This research also suggests that although both individual and contextual factors influence cheating, contextual factors, such as students' perceptions of peers' behavior, are the most powerful influence. In addition, an institution's academic integrity programs and policies, such as honor codes, can have a significant influence on students' behavior. Finally, we offer suggestions for managing cheating from students' and faculty members' perspectives. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Ethics & Behavior Taylor & Francis
