Abstract

Past research indicates that cheating is a fairly prevalent behavior among undergraduate students. Little research, however, has examined the utility of criminological theories in explaining academic misconduct. This study utilized factorial surveys to examine the effects of deterrence variables on cheating behaviors. It also examines whether the impact of deterrence is different for students who indicate that they have cheated in the past and those who indicate that they have not cheated in the past.
