6 Ways to Prevent Plagiarism in Student Papers

6 Ways to Prevent Plagiarism in Student Papers | Academic Honesty in Higher Ed | Scoop.it
Plagiarism is one of the plagues that have tormented teachers since the first school was opened. The motivation or cause behind it can be many: procrastination, lack of research skills, or even an attempt to sound smarter. But the consequence is always the same, copying some else’s words and signing them as if they were yours. And it can be from a book, a paper, or from another student.

Why students really cheat | EAB Daily Briefing

Why students really cheat | EAB Daily Briefing | Academic Honesty in Higher Ed | Scoop.it
Simple economic incentives encourage students to cheat, so the practice is unlikely to abate anytime soon without a major system overhaul, Carol Poster writes for Inside Higher Ed. 

Students have many options available to them when it comes to cheating that save time and are cost-effective. For example, Poster says, suppose a student must choose between spending 20 hours to write a term paper or working. He can earn $180 for 20 hours of work at his job and buy a term paper online for $80, meaning he has $100 left over that he wouldn't have earned if he had written the paper himself.

Addressing Academic Dishonesty in the Age of Ubiquitous Technology (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu | Academic Honesty in Higher Ed | Scoop.it
Key Takeaways
Technology can help fight cheating that is itself based on technology, especially with tweaking of assignments and assessments in a way that makes it difficult to cheat.
Students should be made aware of resources such as university writing centers and tools such as Endnote.
Training about copyright, plagiarism, and time management can help students succeed without feeling that they have to cut corners.
Relevant codes and policies should be clearly stated in communications such as orientation materials, student handbooks, and course syllabi to establish expectations and reduce confrontations between instructors and students.

This Educause review is on point.  Solid common sense advice.

Steve Vaitl's curator insight, June 20, 2015 11:57 AM

For my teaching friends or anyone considering doing writing at a post academic level. What a great resource for information on cutting down the rate of plagiarism. Much of what I see is not intentional but that makes little difference to a protective author, or the legal system.

Glad to see at Kansas City Kansas Community College we are already instituting most of these policies and practices.
