A Comparison of Cheating and Learning/Grade Orientation in American and Australian College Students
80 Australian and 2,239 American college students completed an academic dishonesty questionnaire and the LOGO 11, a questionnaire designed to evaluate learning-oriented (LO) attitudes and behaviors and grade-oriented (GO) attitudes and behaviors. While the majority of both groups reported cheating in high school, the percentage of students who reported cheating in college was significantly lower for the Australian sample than the American sample. Scores on the LOGO 11 indicated that even though the American students espoused LO attitudes, they fell significantly below the Australian students in LO behaviors. Similarly, the American students had significantly higher GO behaviors than did the Australian students.
