This study examined teachers’ and parents’ perceptions of digital and non-digital academic dishonesty in schools, and the strategies they employ to cope with it. Our findings indicate that the technological factor doesn't seem to affect the views held by teachers and parents concerning academic dishonesty. Based on Pavela's (1997) model of academic dishonesty behaviors (cheating, plagiarism, fabrication and facilitation dishonesty of others), findings indicate that although participants are most familiar with cheating, in the context of digital dishonesty, plagiarism was reported more than any other dishonest behavior. Both parents and teachers emphasized the pivotal role of motivational factors (i.e. student's goals, abilities and self-perception) in promoting or inhibiting academic dishonesty.
