The positive attitudes are more likely to be an action of approaching, liking even expecting cheating behavior to occur. Conversely, if the students’ attitude is negative, their affective evaluation tends to reject, disagree, and assume that cheating is a prohibited act and leadstheir attitude to become negative behavior.
