Abstract

Abstract A methodology is described for conducting an experimental analysis of cheating behavior. Data from two mildly retarded, adolescent boys are presented to demonstrate how such variables as surveillance, task difficulty and punishment influence the frequency of their cheating behavior. After a brief presentation of the merits of this method, implications for further research are discussed. While there are aspects of cheating behavior which may not lend themselves to an experimental analysis, the technique is apt to yield very precise functional relationships between behavioral and environmental variables when it can be applied.
