- The data showed that face-to-face students more frequently engaged in various academically dishonest behaviours when compared to students in online courses.
- However, students perceive that the likelihood of cheating occurring in online courses to be much higher than in face-to-face courses (over 4 times higher!).
So why do online courses have a bad reputation for cheating when the actual data on cheating does not support this? Is this bad reputation purely anecdotal in nature?
