Chapter 17: The effects of legalized cheating in the economics classroom

Joel M. Potter and John L. Scott

Subjects: economics and finance, teaching economics, education, economics of education, teaching and learning

Abstract

Using a value-neutral classroom experiment, the chapter examines potential grade improvements from cheating by removing the stigma from the activity and by allowing extensive access to others' answers. The authors find that students do not appraise partners' answers as correct or incorrect and strategically change their answers based on this information.
