The purpose of this action research was to analyze ninety students in a 7th grade US History students and the desire to participate in Academic Dishonesty in a forced hybrid learning model. Data was collected over a period of five weeks using pre and post intervention surveys, an exit slip for self-assessment, and unit assessment scores. Then seeing how reading a script with positive words created by students and adding a proctor can affect the results. Results show a positive correlation between reading a script and proctoring with student self-reporting, morality, and efficacy, however, it did not have correlation with perception of peers, and academic success. These results may have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic which forced multiple students out of data collection for multiple units. Further research should be conducted under non-pandemic conditions to determine the validity of the action research.
