Abstract:Previous research shows that cheating is frequently performed task during exams at universities. In addition, cheating can also be considered to be a risk for the involved groups students and professors. This paper examines different determinants regarding risk perception and which ones predict or influence risk perception of cheating for students as well as for professors. The relevant determinants on which this research focuses are Sensation Seeking, Self efficacy and the probability to get caught/catch someone. An online survey was designed to test if the above-mentioned determinants are relevant for risk perception during cheating for students and professors. The data of 77 students and 20 docents were processed to get the results. A multiple regression analysis shows that for students only the probability to get caught determines the risk perception of cheating and for professors none of the tested determinants influences the risk perception regarding cheating.
