Impact Of Behavior On Student Responses To Online Ethical Surveys
PublisherThe University of Arizona.
AbstractThis paper attempts to understand the gap between how students say versus do during an ethical dilemma. For this study, we surveyed 250 University of Arizona students to test if students intentions matches their actions. To do this, we asked the students a series of ethical questions and then put them in a simulation where they had the opportunity to cheat. We conducted a CFA analysis as well as 4 logistic regressions in order to further understand if there is a correlation between them. We found that, with the students we tested, there was no significant effect of the real life simulation as there were a very few number of cheaters.
