C. García, J.R. Barrada, G. López-Crespo

Universidad de Zaragoza (SPAIN)
This study aims to know the most frequent dishonest behaviours and the factors that influence them. The participants were 654 students from the University of Zaragoza who answered a questionnaire about the frequency of conduct of dishonest behaviour, the factors that influence the performance of these and a test of Neutralization Attitudes (serves to justify conducting behaviours that they know are wrong). Older students (r=, 102) and those with lower averages (r= -, 109) perform more dishonest behaviours. The greater the severity of the conduct the less performance (r= -, 382) and they report their comrades implement them more often. Neutralization attitudes and dishonest behaviours correlate positively (r=, 471). The most performed dishonest behaviours are to get exams illicitly, to copy from others and project plagiarism. The factors that influence the performance are wanting to get good marks, a strong punishment and interesting projects. So that it is proposed to change the questions and its order every year, besides teaching how to quote and reference, and trace learning; it is also posed that punishments be proportional to the severity of the conduct.
