Curbing Academic Dishonesty in Online Courses

By Anita M. Krsak


Abstract: It is common for faculty to believe that academic dishonesty is easier and more prevalent in online courses because of the lack of direct contact with students. This paper examines research into academic dishonesty in online courses, how to prevent cheating when online testing is done, how to detect and prevent plagiarism, how to design online courses to minimize academic dishonesty, and introduces several products and educational practices for preventing dishonesty in the online environment. To date, research into academic dishonesty in online courses has been somewhat limited. In 1998, Ridley and Husband studied student records at Christopher Newport University in an attempt to prove these three hypotheses: 1. Students who enroll in both online and traditional classroom courses will earn higher grades in online courses. 2. Students who enroll in on-line courses through two or more semesters will improve their performance over time
