ABSTRACT

The need to create awareness and consciousness in the universities and educational faculties that train the teacher trainees has been met with the Scientific Research Methods courses, which deals with the ethical and especially scientific and publication ethics aspects of Academic Dishonesty Behaviors because of their frequent occurrence. In this study, it was aimed to examine the Academic Dishonesty Tendency scores of mathematics teacher trainees, who took Scientific Research Methods courses and who did not take these courses. In addition to this it was determined whether these tendencies differ significantly in terms of gender variable. The sample of the research was composed of Mathematics teacher trainees who were studying in the Department of Mathematics Education of a State University. This study is a descriptive study, which was carried out using the general scanning model. The “Academic Dishonesty Tendency Scale” (ADTS) was used to determine the academic dishonesty tendencies of the Mathematics teacher trainees. As the result of this study, it was determined that academic dishonesty tendencies of the Mathematics teacher trainees, both who took and did not take Scientific Research Methods courses, were at the medium level.
