Cheating in School
What We Know and What We Can Do
–Bryan K. Saville, James Madison University
"Cheating in School provides a compelling call to action. Rather than simply sensationalizing individual cases of cheating, it provides a broad and balanced perspective and outlines reasonable short and long-term actions we can all take."
–Lauren Scharff, Ph.D, Director of the Center for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL), U. S. Air Force Academy
"This book combines the work of experienced authors who have unique knowledge of different facets of academic integrity and its attendant problems. Working together, they have created a volume that brings together the various stakeholders concerned with academic cheating. They articulate the problem and define it in all its myriad forms, from the student who copies another’s exam to the parent who 'helps' more than she should.
The book prompts the reader to wonder why cheating is not central to the 21st-century education agenda, and how our values become circumvented or distorted in relation to this issue."
–Ken Keith, University of San Diego
"Cheating in school: What we know and what we can do, is perhaps the most comprehensive and accessible text on the topic of academic integrity that I have read. What makes this book special is the clear intention of the authors to look beyond the individual to the broader institutional and societal milieu within which student cheating occurs, but always with clearly articulated optimism. Stephen Davis, Patrick Drinan and Tricia Bertram Gallant should be congratulated on this carefully and elegantly constructed presentation of the field."
