This study aims to investigate the utilization of the Kahoot application to minimize academic dishonesty during physics examinations. The research was a Quasi-Experimental approach, employing a one-shot case study design. The study's sample involves 23 students in the eleventh grade, selected using a purposive non-probability sampling technique. Data were collected through observation, questionnaires, and interviews.  The instruments in this study utilized indicators developed by Anderman and Murdock, comprising three categories: (1) Providing, utilizing, or receiving various information, (2) Using prohibited materials, and (3) Exploiting someone's weaknesses, procedures, or processes to gain an advantage. The results of this study indicate that 96% of the students agree that the Kahoot application is beneficial in minimizing cheating during the examination process.
