Sri Lestari, Malikatul Laila*, Aulia Kirana.

Abstract
Academic dishonesty has become a problem in the world of education. The article aims to
present the study on studentsí academic dishonesty during the exam. How studentsí behavior during an exam will
be revealed in situations that influence their academic dishonesty and what the reasons have resulted that cause
they act honestly or dishonestly. This study involved 498 students from secondary school. The data were acquired
through a vignette-based questionnaire, in which the students were given scenarios during the exam. The
respondents were asked to provide their respond and the reason for such behavior. The results showed that there
were differences in the manifestation of honest and dishonest behavior in both situations. During exams with no
supervisor, dishonest behavior appeared more frequently than exams with a supervisor. This showed that the
supervisorís presence during an exam was an important factor in studentsí honest behavior. For students who
were honest during an exam was caused by some factors, for example, they wanted to practice honesty, had
confidence on their skills, to assess their competence, and to avoid the risk of being discovered during cheating,
in which the consequence would be strict scolding from the supervisor. In turn, dishonest behavior manifested
from the studentsí desire were to attain good grades, to be able to solve difficult questions, and to finish the test
more quickly. Other factors such as the supervisorís exit from class and witnessing other students cheat during
the exam were also the reasons behind studentsí dishonest behavior.

Key words: Academic dishonesty, secondary school students, vignette, content analysis
