Two hundred twenty college students volunteered to complete questionnaires to measure Type A behavior, academic dishonesty, and classroom orientation. The present data replicated and extended a previous report (Weiss, Gilbert, Giordano, & Davis, 1993) by showing that learning orientation, lower levels of academic dishonesty, and Type A characteristics were positively related. Conversely, grade orientation, Type B characteristics, and higher levels of academic dishonesty were positively related.
