Working paper

Тайное становится явным?

We develop an original method of student cheating evaluation that is based on the comparison of students’ grades on exams in class, home works and special homework. The data for the study is collected from the survey of 2012 sophomores of the International Collegeof Economics and Finance at the National Research University Higher School of Economics in Russia. At the end of the statistics course in addition to standard assignments (homeworks and exams) students were given a special homework. It was limited on cooperation among students, and the violation of this rule is considered as cheating. The scale of cooperation is measured through different techniques and reveals its connection with the GPA level, students’ expectations of the cheaters’ share and their moral norms. We also find different behavioral patterns for high and low performing students as well as country specific context of student cheating behavior.
