Jun 29, 2011

Back in 1940, only 20 percent of college students admitted to cheating during their academic careers. Today, that number has increased to a range of 75%-98%.

Cheating Statistics
  • Cheating typically begins in middle school
  • Nine out of ten middle schoolers admit to copying someone else's homework; two-thirds say they have cheated on exams
