Abstract

Cheating is a common problem on today's college campuses. This study examined the determinants of college students' attitudes toward various forms of cheating. Multiple regression analysis revealed that students who are idealists, older, economics majors, or middle children tend to behave more ethically than do other students. Students who are male, tolerant, relativistic, and opportunistic tend to behave less ethically than other students. The opportunity to cheat is able to explain cheating more than any of the other determinants.
