"Kids cheat when they become stressed," explains Anderman, who says that as the pressure to get good grades and high test scores increases, so does the incidence of cheating.
Anderman says that although children who cheat in school do not fit any defined profile, they're usually students "who are much more focused on getting good grades and extrinsically motivated rather than intrinsically motivated by a desire to learn."
That means that the more pressure students feel, the more likely they are to resort to cheating.
And although pen-and-paper notes and other familiar methods are still very much in use, cell phones and PDAs have opened up new opportunities for students gunning for top grades.
"Obviously with more technology there are more methods kids use to cheat," says Anderman.
