From the Back Cover:

According to media reports, current levels of academic dishonesty have approached near-epidemic proportions. Given the high level of media attention--with headlines such as "High Stakes Testing Results in Widespread Cheating" and "More Students Cheating with Fewer Regrets"--it should come as no surprise that educators, parents, and students are searching for strategies to deal with this pressing problem.

Cheating in School is the definitive book on addressing and preventing the problem of academic dishonesty. Incorporating over thirty years of research, Stephen F. Davis, Patrick Drinan, and Tricia Bertram Gallant provide educators and laypersons with practical advice and insights for tackling this current epidemic. The facts about cheating, its causes, and its consequences are presented in clear and straightforward language. By presenting real student narratives combined with empirical research, the authors provide a roadmap to combating cheating in schools and creating a climate of academic integrity.

He has authored and co-authored many articles on academic integrity this last decade and has served as a consultant on academic integrity at the university level.

Book Description Wiley-Blackwell, 2009. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "In a high-stakes society where the ends are often valued more than the means, cheating has permeated all levels of education. This book is a must-have for anyone wishing to understand the causes of cheating and find ways to prevent its occurrence." - Bryan K. Saville , James Madison University "Cheating in School provides a compelling call to action. Rather than simply sensationalizing individual cases of cheating, it provides a broad and balanced perspective and outlines reasonable short and long-term actions we can all take." - Lauren Scharff , Ph.D, Director of the Center for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL), U. S. Air Force Academy "This book combines the work of experienced authors who have unique knowledge of different facets of academic integrity and its attendant problems. Working together, they have created a volume that brings together the various stakeholders concerned with academic cheating. They articulate the problem and define it in all its myriad forms, from the student who copies another's exam to the parent who 'helps' more than she should. The book prompts the reader to wonder why cheating is not central to the 21st-century education agenda, and how our values become circumvented or distorted in relation to this issue." - Ken Keith , University of San Diego " Cheating in school: What we know and what we can do , is perhaps the most comprehensive and accessible text on the topic of academic integrity that I have read. What makes this book special is the clear intention of the authors to look beyond the individual to the broader institutional and societal milieu within which student cheating occurs, but always with clearly articulated optimism. Stephen Davis, Patrick Drinan and Tricia Bertram Gallant should be congratulated on this carefully and elegantly constructed presentation of the field." - Tracey Bretag , Editor, International Journal for Educational Integrity , University of South Australia.
