Online Testing - 0 views

  •  
    (Also read the comments) "When I ask the faculty whose courses require onsite testing why they require it, the answer is nearly always a concern about cheating. In a classroom or a proctored testing center, they argue, most cheating can be either deterred or caught; online, though, students can get away with a lot.  Academic integrity matters, so they just can't bring themselves to go fully online."

Dear Plagiarist | Annals of Internal Medicine | American College of Physicians - 0 views

    "You have no doubt worked hard to become a physician and scientist. I know that you have published many research papers. It just doesn't make sense. Whether the pressure to publish is so intense, or whether the culture where you work is relatively permissive such that plagiarism is not taken as seriously, or whether getting caught seemed unlikely-it is hard to imagine why you would take this chance."

Turnitin faces new questions about efficacy of plagiarism detection software - 0 views

  •  
    "As UT-Austin recently replaced its learning management system, it also needed to replace its plagiarism detection software. Schorn therefore conducted the Turnitin test again this March. Out of a total of 37 sources, the software fully identified 15, partially identified six and missed 16. That test featured some word deletions and sentence reshuffling -- common tricks students use to cover up plagiarism."

Turnitin And The Debate Over Anti-Plagiarism Software - 0 views

  •  
    "Students are heading back to campus. And when they finish writing that first paper of the year, a growing number will have to do something their parents never did: run their work through anti-plagiarism software. One company behind it is called Turnitin. And the database it uses to screen for potential plagiarism is big. Really, really big."

Plagiarism and the Google Tools to Reduce It - 0 views

  •  
    Google Docs makes it much easier for me to spot and track down plagiariam. First my students share their work with me when they begin a new assignment and I can watch their progress daily. The new preview feature makes this very easy and I often find myself flipping through student papers to check on progress and see who I need to work with soon. Students know I do this and they know I expect to see progress.

Citing Sources: A Quick and Graphic Guide - 0 views

  •  
    "Academia has lots and lots and lots of systems in place for assuring that credit is always given where credit is due. If you're writing a paper, there are particular ways to cite internet sources-- even tweets and Facebook posts. But what about on the internet? We know we're supposed to cite sources, but a standardized system hasn't developed, and in the meantime, you could face a lawsuit if you steal someone else's work, even by accident."
