Academic Integrity Assignment

After viewing the Academic Integrity Policy and the Common Craft: Plagiarism
Video, please respond to the following questions:


1. Plagiarism is commonly referred to as

The passing off of another persons work as ones own, whether deliberate or accidental

2. How will student work be checked for plagiarism? (List at least two ways)
Students work will usually be checked with plagiarism identification software, Turnitin,
or comparing to other students work for academic integrity.

3. Sanctions for plagiarism include (list at least two possible consequences):

Many consequences could include receiving a zero, expulsion from course, or a note on the
students record.

4. What is the difference between accidental plagiarism and deliberate

Accidental plagiarism can happen by not referencing the original author properly, such
as the absence of quotation marks, and forgetting to credit their name. Deliberate
plagiarism, however, is when the person knows to do these things, but still doesnt and
tries to pass it off as their own work.

5. How can you avoid plagiarism, while still integrating support (ideas and
quotes) in your own work?
Make sure to use your own words when not directly quoting from an author, however,
paraphrasing is still OK, as long as original source is referenced.
6. Other than the written work, what other items can be plagiarized? Can you
still use these items? How?
Pictures, statistics, models etc. can still be plagiarized. However, you can still use these,
as long as credit is given to the person who created them.

7. Do some internet research and find at least one website (not listed in the
Academic Integrity Policy or on the Common Craft Video) that helped you
understand how to avoid plagiarism.

I have reviewed both the Academic Integrity Policy and viewed the Common
Craft: Plagiarism video. I have a good understanding of Plagiarism and how
avoid this practice. If I have any questions (before the course begins or when
completing an assignment), I will send my questions to the teacher before I
submit my work.
