Abstract

This study investigates the effect of the lecturer's skepticism, gender, and experience on students' academic dishonesty. This research was conducted on Padang State Polytechnic lecturers, using survey method in data collection. The results showed that lecturers' skepticism and experience had a positive effect on students' academic dishonesty. This finding consistent with Theories of Planned Behavior (TPB), Organization Theory and the contemporary cognitive theory which holds that skeptical lecturers would be inclined to refrain from the issue of academic dishonesty. These findings contribute to Politeknik Negeri Padang in determining the appropriate policy to overcome student's academic dishonesty.
