Abstract: The study investigated the impact of individual, cultural & contextual factors on academic integrity, conceptualized in terms of passive and active cheating, among medical students in Jordan. Using data collected from 353 students, it was determined through odds ratio analysis that cultural collectivism and academic integrity culture had no impact on either active or passive cheating. However, traits of both high conscientiousness and high agreeableness substantially reduced one’s risk of active cheating. Neither the cultural and personality variables, nor gender were found to increase one’s risk of passive cheating. These findings contradict current beliefs that collectivism impacts cheating among Middle East students. Various managerial and theoretical implications are discussed.
Keywords: academic integrity, cheating, collectivism, personality traits, medical students
