Book Description

Academic cheating, who does it and why?

From the Back Cover

Academic cheating has long been a problem in educational institutions. Research indicates that the majority of students have cheated at some point in their academic careers, and that cheating is highly influenced by both the demands of the learning situation and the student's larger social context. The Psychology of Academic Cheating provides a summary of research findings on the personality and situational variables associated with cheating, the methods most commonly used to cheat, the motivation behind cheating behavior, and ways in which educators can remove opportunities for cheating.

The book is divided into four sections discussing
* Who cheats and how?
* What motivates cheating?
* How do students reason about cheating?
* How do educators respond to cheating?

The book discusses student cheating and teacher cheating, as well as the motivational profiles of students who report cheating. It also explores malleable definitions of dishonesty, whereby students frame cheating in to believe it is less morally reprehensible. Understanding this reasoning better presents educators and psychologists with opportunities for social-cognitive interventions. The book also explores at length how technology is being utilized to cheat in new ways, and what the cheating literature has to say about the increasing trend toward online testing.
