Differences in attitude to academic dishonesty among college students

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

    Abstract

    This paper analyses the results of a survey of 204 students taken at an Australian business college in which respondents were surveyed, confidentially, on their attitude toward various types of academic honesty. Variables included self-assessment of ability, justification of cheating, the temptation and peer pressure to cheat, being aware of and being concerned about others cheating and suggested penalties for those who are caught. It was found in some aspects that the position adopted varied markedly between men and women as well as between students of differing academic ability. The intention of all respondents was to ultimately enrol in a business degree at an Australian university.
