During
the global recession of 2008 and 2009, there were many accusations of
unethical behavior by Wall Street executives, financial managers, and
other corporate officers. At that time, an article appeared that
suggested that part of the reason for such unethical business behavior
may stem from the fact that cheating has become more prevalent among
business students. The article reported that 86% of business students
admitted to cheating at some time during their academic career as
compared to 77% of non-business students.

Cheating has been a
concern of the dean of the College of Business at Rocky University for
several years. Some faculty members in the college believe that cheating
is more widespread at Rocky than at other universities, while other
faculty members think that cheating is not a major problem in the
college. To resolve some of these issues, the dean commissioned a study
to assess the current ethical behavior of business students at Rocky. As
part of this study, an anonymous exit survey was administered to a
sample of 90 business students from this year’s graduating class.
Responses to the following questions were used to obtain data regarding
three types of cheating.

During your time at Rocky, did you ever present work copied off the Internet as your own?

Yes   

No   

During your time at Rocky, did you ever copy answers off another student’s exam?

Yes   

No   

During
your time at Rocky, did you ever collaborate with other students on
projects that were supposed to be completed individually?

Yes   

No   

Any
student who answered yes to one or more of these questions was
considered to have been involved in some type of cheating. The complete
data set is in the file named Rocky.

Managerial Report

Prepare
a report (see below) for the dean of the college that summarizes your
assessment of the nature of cheating by business students at Rocky
University. Be sure to include the following seven (7) items in your
report.

  1. To summarize the data, compute the proportion of all
    students the proportion of all male students, and the proportion of all
    female students that presented

    1. Work copied off the internet as their own
    2. Copied answers off another student’s exam
    3. Collaborated with other students on projects that were supposed to be completed individually. 
      Then comment on your findings.
  2. Develop
    95% confidence intervals for the proportion of all students, the
    proportion of all male students, and the proportion of all female
    students who were involved in some type of cheating.
  3. Develop 95%
    confidence intervals for the proportion of all students, the proportion
    of all male students, and the proportion of all female students who
    were involved in copying off the internet.
  4. Develop 95%
    confidence intervals for the proportion of all students, the proportion
    of all male students, and the proportion of all female students who were
    involved in copying off another’s exam.
  5. Develop 95% confidence
    intervals for the proportion of all students, the proportion of all male
    students, and the proportion of all female students who were involved
    in collaborating on individual project.
  6. Conduct a hypothesis
    test to determine if the proportion of all business students at Rocky
    University who were not involved in some type of cheating is less than
    that of all business students elsewhere.  Use α = 0.05.
  7. What advice would you give to the dean based upon your analysis of the data?
