This is the first book to offer a comprehensive look at the problem of cheating on assessments (tests) across all levels of the American educational system. It is organized around seven major objectives that identify this problem by: 1. introducing and defining the problem of cheating and documenting the extent of its occurrence; 2. cataloging and presenting information on the methods used to cheat on tests; 3. providing information on methods useful for preventing cheating; 4. describing methods used to detect cheating once it has occurred; 5. synthesizing what is kwn about predispositions, correlates, and cultural differences in cheating; 6. summarizing legal issues related to cheating; and 7. illustrating ways in which individuals and institutions respond to cheating. Cheating on Tests is informally written using a minimum of professional jargon and numerous anecdotes and cases. Technical information is largely confined to end-of-book appendices. It will appeal to all serious stakeholders in our educational system from parents and school board members to professionals directly connected to our schools and the testing industry.
