Fures trifuresque: A case study of class-wide academic fraud in online education

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference PaperResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Academic fraud is widespread in secondary education. While several studies have focused on the causes of cheating within the traditional, face-to-face learning environment, few studies examine academic fraud in online learning. Those few studies of online academic fraud focus on plagiarism detection and prevention. This paper presents a case study of academic fraud in an online Latin class. Subjects were interviewed in an attempt to identify the factors which encourage cheating within online learning environments, the methods by which students commit academic fraud, and student attitudes towards cheating. A clearer understanding of academic fraud in distance programs will allow educators to better design their courses.
