Factors Affecting Academic Fraud: A Case Study of Kuwait University Students.

Auther : Dr. Wefqi H. Abu Ali - Prof. Abdulrahman A. Al-Ahmad

     The objective of this study is to identify the factors affecting academic fraud as perceived by a sample of Kuwait University (KU) students. The variables tested include gender, type of faculty, educational level of father, and educational level of mother. To this end, a tool based on statements related to academic fraud has been prepared and administered to a sample of 2000 male and female students belonging to different KU colleges during the first semester of the academic year 2013-2014. The results reveal that the tendency among KU students to commit academic fraud is at a moderate level. As for the factors affecting academic fraud, psychological, moral, and family factors show a high degree of influence. They are followed by academic factors, and finally there are societal factors, which only have a moderate degree of influence. The results show no statistical significance between the variables of gender, type of college and educational level of father and the tendency to commit academic fraud. However, students whose mothers have university degrees are found to have a higher tendency to commit fraud. There are also statistically significant differences between the average scores of the sample members concerning factors contributing to the spread of fraud. These differences are in favor of female students, hard sciences students, and students whose fathers had a diploma degree only.
