Decrease in cheating @ Duke

A recent survey attributes decrease in cheating to Duke University's honor code, which was introduced in 2003.

The latest figures, gathered last fall from more than 2,000 students and 300 faculty members, show a drop in plagiarism from 38 percent in 2000 to 26 percent last year, while unauthorized collaboration -- students working together when individual work was required -- dropped from 45 percent to 29 percent.
