Executive Summary The purpose of this analysis is to figure out whether cheating is more widespread in Bayview than in other universities, and whether cheating is a major issue at Bayview University. Data collected from 90 graduating business students from Bayview University on the rates of involvement in some type of cheating demonstrated interesting results: 1. About 40% of the graduating business students from Bayview University were involved in some type of cheating. Males had a greater rate of being involved in some type of cheating over the females. 2. The actual proportion of business students from Bayview University that had been involved in some type of cheating is between 31% and 51% (approximately 95%). 3. Business Students at Bayview University cheat less than other business institutions as reported by the Chronical of Higher Education. 4. There is insufficient amount of evidence to support that business students at Bayview University do not cheat less than other non-business institutions as reported by the Chronicle of Higher Education. According to our findings, we come to the conclusion that Bayview’s students behave better than other business institutions’ students, but the cheating rate is not less than other non-business institutions’. Therefore, actions are needed to reduce Bayview students’ cheating rate. 5. 3
