It is definitely something that teachers need to ensure that students do as matter of course. It is so easy to not bother because the students got the answer right. We need to ensure teachers and students understand the importance of this.

How to Recognize Plagiarism: Welcome: School of Education, Indiana University Bloomington

In our experience with writers over the years, we have observed two prevalent kinds of plagiarism: word-for-word and paraphrasing.

You need to be able to identify these kinds of plagiarism in order to avoid them. You also need to be able to discern when plagiarism does not occur.

This is the main focus of this tutorial. When provided with original source material and a sample of student writing, you should be able to correctly identify whether the student version is word-for-word plagiarism, paraphrasing plagiarism, or not plagiarism.
