Best Practices for Preventing and Responding to Cheating in Your Classroom and School

Cheating in school is a widespread and complex problem. Recent news has included reports of hundreds of high school seniors in a Texas school obtaining test questions prior to a final exam in English, students in New York paying others to take their SAT tests, and students in a California high school obtaining test questions from textbook test banks restricted to teachers' use. Research by the Josephson Institute (http://charactercounts.org/programs/reportcard/2008/ index.html) indicates that 64% of high school students admitted to cheating on a test and 36% admitted to using the Internet to plagiarize others' work, while 93% were satisfied with their personal ethics or character. Students report a multitude of cheating methods, from using notes or cheat sheets or looking at another student's paper during a test, copying homework, unauthorized collaboration on assignments, cut-and-paste copying on papers, and receiving unauthorized help from parents, peers, or tutors, to more sophisticated methods such as gaining access to test questions prior to the test, submitting papers purchased from online paper mills, and using cell phones to cheat.

This OnDemand Webinar will present practical classroom strategies for preventing and addressing cheating and encouraging students to do their own honest work, along with school-wide initiatives for developing a comprehensive program for addressing academic dishonesty and creating a school community where academic integrity is promoted and valued.
