Abstract

My research was focused on finding the numbers and reasons for why students cheat or have cheated throughout their college careers. Through my research, I found that at our college there is a rather high population that does or has cheated during their college career. I found that many students take on cheating due to their lack of time. I also found that students felt that the easier a class was, the less effort they put into the class. So when it came to test time, they were not concerned with studying and relied on cheating.
