Students' Guide to Preventing and Avoiding Plagiarism and Student Plagiarism Tutorial Exercise

This website consists of two parts: Students' Guide to Preventing and Avoiding Plagiarism and a Plagiarism Exercise (Powerpoint) located on the left of the main student page. The latter is an interactive student plagiarism tutorial. The plagiarism website for students opens with a definition, gives a brief overview of the topic and then highlights campus policies concerning this timely subject in higher education. It offers some common pitfalls on what constitutes plagiarism and then provides some tips on how to cite, quote, and paraphrase in order to avoid it. Links are then made to other campus referral services (e.g. The Writing Center, etc.)with a suggestion for students to seek the assistance of their professors when they are frustrated with particular assignments. The second part, the interactive question and answer plagiarism tutorial is designed to be used in class to reinforce the material found on the student site and to determine whether or not students are actually recognizing plagiarism when they see it. Text used was taken from the C.W. Post Campus Ethos Statement, since the tutorial was created to be used at an Orientation session. This format, currently in use in most library instruction classes, actively involves this technologically savvy generation of students by engaging them in the process of identifying what constitutes plagiarism.
