dc.description.abstract One hundred and thirty-two Japanese students and 210 South African students completed a questionnaire originally employed by Davis and Ludvigson (1995) examining factors associated with academic dishonesty. In comparison to established American academic dishonesty trends, Japanese students violated what is typically seen as "normal" cheating trends. Rates of academic dishonesty increased from high school to university for both men and women. Also, women reported in engaging in academic dishonesty more often than men at the university level. South African students followed the established American trends, but rates of academic dishonesty were at significantly lower levels. Further investigation of determinants, techniques and diverse deterrents are included. en_US
