Abstract

Dishonest academic practices are a common concern within education yet there is little understanding of the role of emotions in this phenomenon. The purpose of this study was to understand the association between academic dishonesty and achievement emotions. A survey was conducted among 129 international high school students. Results indicated that male students find academic dishonest behaviors more acceptable than female students do while older students agree less with academic dishonest behaviors than younger ones do. Results also indicated that the relationship between academic dishonesty and achievement emotions is weak; however, the relationship is moderate when controlling for class level and gender.
