Comment:        Re: SHK 9.1242 Re: Plagiarism

<< Since we regularly ask students to write, for an Introduction to
Theatre
 course, on the subject of the Renaissance, I would greatly appreciate
it
 if we could start sharing lists of web sites where these papers can be
 bought.  I've already received several papers that were suspiciously
 well-crafted, and hesitated to call the students on it because I didn't
 have the time to check their work more fully.  There are other means of
 testing them in our class, the essay is one small portion, so for this
 semester I let it pass.  Next semester, however, I hope to be prepared.

 Thanks in advance for any more tips,
 Andy White >>

If you suspect that someone has given you phony work simply invite them
to your office and ask them a few probing questions on the papers thesis
and content. Someone who did their own work will be able to answer the
questions.  Someone who is dirty-generally, but not always-probably
can't answer simple questions about the work.

Subject:        Plagiarism

In light of the recent discussion, I thought that the message below,
from the Communication Research and Theory Network discussion group
might be of interest.

On-line plagiarism resource I think this may be off the current topic of
this thread, but it goes back to what started this whole
discussion-plagiarism from the internet. Julie Ryan has an excellent
article on on-line plagiarism and how instructors can use the internet
to combat it in the December 1998 issue of ASEE Prism magazine (American
Society for Engineering Education).  It is available on line at
http://www.asee.org/prism/.
