Question and answer
Why do students cheet?
Students generally are familiar with the disciplinary actions and penalties for getting caught. [ However, they may fail to understand that one of the personal consequences of cheating and/or plagiarism is that they aren't actually learning or practicing the material. They may not realize that they will actually need and be accountable for certain knowledge and skills.Students sometimes view cheating as a necessary, not totally unacceptable method for academic survival. If they believe that "everyone cheats sometimes," they may not seriously ask themselves, "Why shouldn't I?"Cheating can be
a tempting path when they have difficulty managing their time. Some may have little remorse because they rationalize "doing what it takes" to get all of their work done. One poor performance on a high-stakes assignment or feeling "shafted out of an A" by a curve may increase the perceived pressure to switch from honest work to questionable "shortcuts."Students sometimes feel that receiving a zero for an exam or a paper is a justified penalty for cheating, but they may also convince themselves that they won't get caught. And they can be reinforced in this thinking if grading procedures aren't planned carefully or if instructors don't follow up on suspicious incidents. ]
