While this article had little to no bearing on this paper on hand, it gave some interesting information-- what a student would most likely cheat at.

Logically, I would assume a student would be more likely to cheat on something that would cost them a huge part of their grade if he or she were to do poorly on it. However, I do not know if this applies to college students, but the article hints that most students maintain the same way of thinking even through college. The next article came from the Journal of Interactive Online Learning, a short titled "Perceptions of Academic Honesty in Online vs. Face-to-Face Classrooms" by Michael Spaulding, professor at the University of Tennessee–Martin.

In most cases students would just copy and paste the URL of websites under a heading of ‘bibliography’.

Only three per cent said that they had copied text word for word from a book or online source.
