1. Krou, Megan R. Rationalizing the Decision to Cheat: An Empirical Analysis to Determine Whether Social Rational Orientation can Predict Academic Dishonesty.

Degree: MA, Sociology, 2015, Texas State University – San Marcos

Academic dishonesty is a wide-spread issue that plagues educational institutions, including those in higher education. The purpose of higher education is to increase knowledge and foster learning within students who are willing to put forth the effort necessary to earn a degree. However, students that take short cuts in their learning are not only undermining their learning experience, but are potentially putting others at risk in their profession. Due to the negative implications of cheating, researchers are trying to uncover the characteristics that encompass a typical cheater. While numerous variables have been tested to determine their effects on cheating behaviors, discrepancies exist that suggest inconclusive results. Previous literature yielded no studies on the relationship between social rational orientation and academic dishonesty. This study tested if there was a correlation between social rational action orientations and the likelihood of engaging in academically dishonest acts. The relationship between course value and academic dishonesty was also examined overall and within each rational orientation group. This study found that rational orientation and perceived course value predicted the likelihood of engaging in academically dishonest acts. Advisors/Committee Members: Pino, Nathan W.

2. Mistler, Brian. Bisociation and Second-Order Change Relationships Among Tolerance for Ambiguity, Sense of Humor, and Humor Styles.

Degree: PhD, Counseling Psychology - Psychology, 2009, University of Florida

Individual differences in Tolerance for Ambiguity (TFA) are important in predicting how people deal with data subject to multiple interpretations (ambiguity) in contexts including therapy and conflict resolution. This study examines models of humor based on bisociation and meta-pattern recognition, using humor variables to predict TFA, and implications/applications for therapy, second-order change, and future research. Using an unrestricted online sample of 691 adult participants it was found that higher levels of sense of humor were significantly associated with higher levels of TFA (Beta = .30; p < .001), even after controlling for social desirability. Adding humor styles (HS) to the regression model further increased predictive power. TFA was positively associated with Affiliative and Self-enhancing styles, and not associated with the 'potentially detrimental' styles (Aggressive and Self-defeating). The largest correlation with TFA occurred with Self-enhancing HS (r = .33, p < .01 ). Relationships between HS, social dominance, and TFA were also investigated. Constructivist and Gestalt therapists had higher levels of TFA than those with orientations based on rationalist assumptions. Results of a previous study relating humor to HS were replicated in expected directions. ( en ) Advisors/Committee Members: Neimeyer, Greg J. (committee chair), Berg, William K.
