Assessing Male Vs. Female Business Student Perceptions Of Plagiarism At A Southern Institution Of Higher Education, Daniel Adrian Doss, Russ Henley, Ursula Becker, David Mcelreath, Hilliard Lackey, Don Jones, Feng He, Mingyu Li, Shimin Lin

Georgia Educational Researcher

Plagiarism, cheating, and academic dishonesty affect institutions of higher education. This study examines student perceptions of plagiarism within a Southern, Division-II teaching institution. This study employed a five-point Likert-scale to examine differences of perceptions between male versus female business students. Two statistically significant outcomes were observed between males and females involving the notions that plagiarism is perceived as a necessary evil and that plagiarism is illegal. Respectively, the analyses of the means showed that both male and female respondents tended toward disagreement concerning whether plagiarism is a necessary evil and neutrality regarding whether plagiarism is illegal.
