dc.description.abstractA study is presented on the methodology of comparing different survey techniques based on indirect methods against direct methods to estimate the practice of copying and plagiarism of students at the University of Puerto Rico at Mayagüez, Campus in the beginning of the second semester of 2006 – 2007 and the summer of 2007. Both sensitive and non – sensitive questions were considered in order to compare indirect survey methods against direct methods. Two indirect survey techniques were considered: The Incomplete Balanced Blocks(Raghavarao and Federer, 1971) and The Method of Not Matched Lists (Miller and Cisin, 1984). In order to compare the aforementioned techniques with direct methods, each was compared with a traditional questionnaire. Both indirect methods used in this investigation included sensitive and non – sensitive questions to find their estimators.en_US
dc.description.abstractSe presenta el estudio basado en la metodología de comparar diferentes técnicas de encuestas basadas en métodos directos e indirectos para estimar prácticas de “copiarse” y plagio en el Recinto Universitario de Mayagüez, a inicios del segundo semestre 2006 – 2007 y el Verano 2007. En el estudio se consideraron preguntas sensitivas y no sensitivas para comparar las técnicas de encuestas indirectas y las técnicas de encuestas directas. Se consideraron dos técnicas de encuestas indirectas y dos técnicas de encuestas directas. Las técnicas indirectas fueron: El Método de Bloques Incompletos Balanceados (Raghavarao y Federer, 1971) y el Método de Listas No pareadas (Millar y Cisin, 1984). Se consideró como técnica directa la aplicación de dos cuestionarios tradicionales cuyos resultados se compararon con los resultados obtenidos a través de los métodos indirectos. Los métodos indirectos aplicados incluirán el uso de preguntas sensitivas y no sensitivas.en_US
