AbstractThis study assessed several ethical issues and judgments facing graduate teaching assistants. The authors asked psychology graduate teaching assistants to respond to the ethics of a number of teaching-related behaviors and how often they practices the behaviors. The authors found several discrepancies were found between ethical judgments and practice. These data highlight the risk for unethical behavior among GTAs and the lack of preparation for dealing with that risk.
