Partnering with Students to Avoid "Cut and Paste" Plagiarism (C&PP)

From TLT (The Teaching, Learning, and Technology Group): "The purpose of this LTA is to suggest technology augmented strategies that both faculty and students can employ to both avoid and detect student generated C&PP. However, students are not the only potential beneficiaries of methods to avoid C&PP. Anyone, (including faculty) who makes frequent use of internet based resources to gather research, can profit from these approaches.

Our specific bias is to empower faculty-student partnerships to detect C&PP, as well as to model ethical communication."

Plagiarism Introduction

An outstanding site for students and faculty, this work is the result of a collaboration of the Writing Center, the English Department, the Center for Teaching, Learning and Technology, the Office of Student Affairs, the WSU Libraries, and the University Ethics Interest Group at Washington State University.

Plagiarism-by-Paraphrase Risk Quiz
"Are you in danger of committing plagiarism while paraphrasing a source? The most common form of college-level plagiarism is not produced by intentional theft of another's ideas. For predictable reasons, it happens when students try to paraphrase published scholarly sources. Student writers are still learning the vocabulary and methods of the discipline, so they know fewer alternatives to the phrasing of the original passage. Also, student writers aren't always aware of just how careful one has to be when borrowing ideas even when the sources' words have been changed.

The 'Paraphrase-Plagiarism Risk Quiz' was designed and edited by Arnold Sanders, Associate Professor of English and Writing Program Director at Goucher College, with programming assistance and web-design by Susan Garrett Weiss, Assistant Professor of English at Goucher and in English and Linguistics at Western Maryland University. Additional programming assistance was provided by Kristin Stanley, a senior Computer Science major at Mount St. Mary's College."
