  • Abstract

    Randomized control trial examining peer behavior and peer gender on theft (n=329 university students). Participants were randomly placed into one of four deviant peer modeling groups (control, verbal prompting, behavioral modeling, verbal prompting plus behavioral modeling) and one of three confederate gender similarity groups (same gender, different gender, mixed gender) (4x3 factorial design, equal randomization). The outcome was theft of a gift card. Each session included two confederates and a single participant.

  • Technical Information

    Response Rates: A total of 335 students participated. Six opted out or were omitted from the data set after reporting that they did not identify as male or female due to small cell counts. Data set includes 329 participants.
