Academic Fraud, Colombian Universities, Dishonesty, Educational System, Evaluation


This study inquires into the frequency of committing academic fraud among university students, the main types of fraud, and the reasons given by the students for engaging in this conduct. The data are obtained from direct surveys carried out at different times between the years 2003 and 2013 to more than 3.300 students from four Colombian universities of high academic ranking. These universities, out of which three are private, and one is public are in the three main cities of Colombia. The study shows that over 90% of the students surveyed admitted having committed some type of fraud during their university years and that the percentage of students who admitted having committed fraud has not had a significant change in the decade covered by the study. We also found that having copied during a test, to include someone in a group without having worked, borrow a paper, having lots of work, that the evaluation only tests memorization, and help a classmate are the reasons most commonly cited by the students to commit fraud.
