This study examined the relations between the grade point average, being a cheater or non cheater and the determined cheating factor scores. In total, 493 students participated in the study. The data were collected by using questionnaires. The factor analysis, Pearson correlation test and 't' test were used to analyze student-opinion data. First, the nine factors were determined to represent 34 variables, and then nine factors were rotated to factors scores. Later the relations were examined. The significant relation couldn't be found between grade point averages and factor scores. A significant relation was found between being a cheater or non cheater and certain factors.
