Abstract
An increasing problem of great concern for academic institutions around the world is the pervasiveness of cheating among students. This research examines the relationships between measures of strain and principals’ reports of school cheating in schools across 39 nation-units, derived from the 2007 Trends in International Math and Science Studies survey. The study employs multilevel linear analysis to evaluate whether indicators of economic disadvantage, educational achievement, and educational inequalities influence the level of cheating reported by school principals cross-nationally. Additionally, we identify which socioeconomic and demographic characteristics of nation-states are most related to cheating as reported by school principals.
