What Should I Do When a Student Cheats?

What Should I Do When a Student Cheats?

Three out of every four college students cheat at some point during their undergraduate careers. Learn a more effective approach to ending academic dishonesty and study real-world examples of how to implement each step of Lang’s five-step model for dealing with cheating and promoting academic integrity.

Change the Cheating Mindset

Cheating and plagiarism are serious problems in higher education today, but the rate of academic dishonesty hasn’t changed much in 50 years.

Severe punishment doesn’t have much of an effect on the incidence of cheating, and there is a great deal faculty and student leaders can do to promote academic integrity.

Find out the most effective ways to confront cheating in What Should I Do When a Student Cheats?, a Magna 20-Minute Mentor with James M. Lang, director of the Center for Teaching Excellence and an English professor at Assumption College.

Instead of myths and misconceptions, Lang will share a research-based approach to the challenge of academic dishonesty—in your classroom and across your campus.

You’ll explore:

  • The key to ensuring a fair process for handling violations of academic integrity
  • The message you don’t want to send to students
  • The steps involved in determining an appropriate level of punishment

There’s a reason unethical behavior in higher education is called “cheating,” since students who practice plagiarism and other violations are really robbing themselves of their ability to learn.

Make sure you’re doing all you can to help your students do the right thing by themselves, their peers, and your campus policies. Order this Magna 20-Minute Mentor today!
