Abstract

The percentage of US college students who admit or observe cheating has grown steadily for at least fifty years, to the point where every instructor in higher education should expect to encounter academic misconduct on a regular basis.

This case presents a doctoral student instructor’s dilemma when he observes a student cheating, exploring the instructor’s responsibility for academic integrity the resources available to assist instructors concerned with this issue.
