Abstract

The aim of this study is to examine the relationship between university students' fear of negative evaluation and their academic dishonesty tendencies and to compare them in terms of various variables. The sample of the study carried out in the relational screening model consists of 306 students, who were selected by the easily accessible sampling method among the university students studying at Yozgat Bozok University, Turkey in the academic year 2019-2020. "Personal Information Form", "Academic Dishonesty Tendencies Scale", "Brief Fear of Negative Evaluation Scale" were used as data collection tools in the study. The data in the research were analyzed using the SPSS 22.0 package program. As a result of the analysis made with the Kolmagorov Smirnov test, it was found that the data were normally distributed. Independent-Samples T Test, One-Way ANOVA, Pearson Correlation and Simple Linear Regression Analysis were used to analyze the data. As a result of the analyses made, it was determined that there was no significant difference between the fear of negative evaluation and the sub-dimensions of the academic dishonesty scale in terms of gender. It was determined that the mean scores of sedentary students were significantly higher than the mean scores of the students doing sports in the dishonesty in citation sub-dimension of the academic dishonesty tendencies scale. As a result, it was determined that there is a low-level positive relationship between university students' fear of negative evaluation and their dishonesty tendency. As students' fear of negative evaluation increases, academic dishonesty tendencies also increase.
