Correlates of Academic Dishonesty among Trainee Teachers of Cross River University of Technology, Calabar, Nigeria: Implications for Educational Measurement

Dr Henry Ojating, Uyanah, D. A.


Abstract: Education in Nigeria is highly compromised by a deep rooted cheating culture that appears to even enjoy the impetus of those who should save it from the brink of total collapse. This study examined the correlates of academic dishonesty among trainee teachers of Cross River University of Technology, Calabar, Nigeria. Two null hypotheses were developed and tested at.05 significance level. Data for analysis were collected through a well-structured questionnaire and the statistic used to test each of the two hypotheses was the independent t-test. The results indicated that dishonest tendencies and academic commitment of trainee teachers do not significantly influence their academic dishonesty. The researchers equally explored the implications of this study for educational measurement.
