Publication Date / Copyright Date
This article describes the current state of classroom cheating and recommends strategies to decrease cheating and academic dishonesty. The issues surrounding cheating generate a significant amount of discussion at professional meetings and faculty events. If thoughtfully evaluated and created, institutional policies, along with support from administration and effective department procedures, will reduce the level of cheating and promote integrity with faculty and students. The authors conclude that without clear policies and rapid responses to academic honesty violations, little can be done to change the culture within the institution. Encouraging academic integrity by students and faculty is an ongoing task and one that will reap rewards if taken seriously and well managed.
