dc.description.abstract For over 70 years, research has tackled the issue of academic misconduct in the university setting. However, a review of the literature reveals that (a) consensus on the magnitude of such behavior has not been reached and (b) no one with expertise in quantitative methodology has attempted to classify the behaviors that describe cheaters until Ferrell and Daniel proposed the use of the Academic Misconduct Survey (AMS). Even they, following their 1995 study, made a call for the development of understandable constructs in the measurement of cheating. Twelve years later, the present study seeks to produce such constructs. Nearly 600 participants completed a revised version of the AMS. A factor solution containing six factors proved to be the most interpretable. The present paper outlines the factor solution, and discusses future directions in this area of research. en
