A brief, 10-question plagiarism tutorial designed to challenge students and highlight the less obvious cases in which sources might be used incorrectly or irresponsibly. Provides immediate feedback and allows the learner to submit results to any email address.
The Eastern Michigan Library’s Understanding Plagiarism tutorial provides information about plagiarism through everyday examples and situations. The tutorial is divided into three sections: Toward an Understanding, which covers some common myths about plagiarism; Plagiarism in Context, which includes cases of plagiarism in popular culture; and Plagiarism in the Academy, which focuses on plagiarism as it may appear in classwork. The tutorial is easy to navigate, and each section includes assessment questions and opportunities for students to reflect on the concepts covered.
Learn to borrow from a source without plagiarizing. For more information on paraphrasing, as well as other ways to integrate sources into your paper, see the Purdue OWL handout Quoting Paraphrasing, and Summarizing.
