Imagine that you are hosting a group of exchange students next term. You are responsible for welcoming the students to campus and acquainting the students with life on campus socially as well as academically.

What do they need to know about making and keeping friends here in the U.S.? **Weegy:** Academic dishonesty is endemic in all levels of education.[citation needed] In the United States, studies show that 20% of students started cheating in the first grade.[5] Similarly, other studies reveal that currently in the U.S., [ [ [ 56% of middle school students and 70% of high school students have cheated.[6] Students are not the only ones to cheat in an academic setting. A study among North Carolina school teachers found that some 35 percent of respondents said they had witnessed their colleagues cheating in one form or another. The rise of high-stakes testing and the consequences of the results on the teacher is cited as a reason why a teacher might want to inflate the results of their students.[7] The first scholarly studies in the 1960s of academic dishonesty in higher education found that nationally in the U.S., somewhere between 50%-70% of college students had cheated at least once.[8] While nationally, these rates of cheating in the U.S. remain stable today, there are large disparities between different schools, depending on the size, selectivity, and anti-cheating policies of the school. Generally, the smaller and more selective the college, the less cheating occurs there. ] ] (More)
