Plagiarism of previously published document can be relatively easily detected by appropriate software tools. On contrary, detection that thesis or assignment was elaborated by someone else, is much more complex. Such assignments are usually original. Even though this is plagiarism, because student is presenting someone else's work as his/her own and gets mark, credit or diploma unwarrantedly. Market with fraudulent assignments is developed namely in English speaking countries, but there are websites offering "materials" for a fee also in other countries. The task of the student will be - in selected country: 1) Analyze the contract cheating market - prices, supply, demand, delivery time, etc. 2) Analyze legal aspects of this behavior. Who and why is breaching what legislation? 3) Run anonymous questionnaire survey amongst students dealing with quantitiy of using such services, circumstances under which students are willing to use these services and reasons leading to this behavior. Try to get case studies 4) Analyze wider impact of this behavior to the society 5) Suggest measures which should be taken by higher education institutions to minimize this behavior.
