 Reducing Academic Dishonesty: A Full-Cycle Approach: Most institutions of higher learning have a student handbook which typically contains a section on academic honesty. While students know what is expected of them, the temptation to cheat remains strong because there is profit in terms of better grades or less work. The current talk explored some of the psychological factors that may influence the decision to cheat. It identifies instances where choice architecture can be used to reduce cheating and increase the collective academic honesty of the student body. Robert F Campbell is an Assoc. Professor of Psychology at Lourdes University.
