The purpose of this study is to determine the attitudes of students from the Hasan Dogan School of Physical Education and Sports towards cheating in exams and to investigate changes in these attitudes in terms of several variables. The survey method was used in the study. The study was conducted during the 2014-2015 Academic year at the Karabük University Hasan Dogan High School of Physical Education and Sports. The Study Group consisted of 178 student teachers from the Physical Education and Sports Department and 159 students from the Sports Management Department. In total, 337 students were selected, using the random sampling method. The Attitude Scale on Cheating in Exams (ASCE), developed by Semerci (2003), was used to collect the data. The scale consisted of one dimension and 67 items, 37 of which were positive and 30 of which were negative statements. The study data were analyzed using the SPSS Package Program. The t-test and One-Way Variance Analysis (ANOVA) were used to analysis the data. The Cronbach's Alpha reliability level of the scale used in the study was calculated to be 0.89. By the end of the study, it was established that the students from the Physical Education and Sports High School had above average attitudes and that attitudes on cheating in exams did not differ according to gender, department, type of high school attended, and YGS points; however, it was also determined that the students' attitudes towards cheating in exams differed according to year level.
