Professor Donald McCabe, at Rutgers Business School in New Jersey, has conducted much of the research on cheating in U.S. schools since 1990 and says cheating on tests in high school is on the rise. In his survey of 24,000 students at 70 high schools, 64 percent of students admitted to cheating on a test, 58 percent admitted to plagiarism and 95 percent said they participated in some form of cheating, whether it was on a test, plagiarism or copying homework. Problem is, he said, some students don't think of it as cheating, or they try to justify their behavior."They feel a test is unfair and they feel it's OK to cheat," he said. "Maybe they had something to do that night and didn't study. Another big issue is fairness — they feel that they are getting left behind."
