Question description

1. Depending on the instructor, the penalties for plagiarism vary dramatically—from revising the assignment to failure for the course. What do you think would be an appropriate penalty for a student who clearly plagiarized intentionally? Why? What factors might influence the penalty?

2. After reading about plagiarism in the APA Guide this week, define plagiarism in your own words. Why would a college be so interested in its prevention?

3. Explain two ways a student can avoid unintentional plagiarism.

4. If you were a teacher, would you attempt to make a distinction between intentional and unintentional plagiarism? Why or why not? What might make the task difficult?

5. What is the difference between intentional and unintentional plagiarism? Provide an example of each.

6. A sentence from a source reads:

Children have been seen behaving in a hyperactive manner after consuming large quantities of candy, but there is no scientific data to explain the biological mechanism behind this change in behavior.

The student writes in his essay:

When we think of candy, we often associate that with childhood. We tend to see candy as the ultimate childhood treat, something that a child can earn for being good. Observation can tell us that some children can become hyperactive after they consume large amounts of candy, thusly making them act out, no longer being good. While there has been no scientific data to explain the biological mechanism behind this change in behavior, it does stand to reason that limiting a child's intake of candy is a good move (Hartlane, 2004, p. 26).

Is this plagiarism? Why or why not?

7. List three reasons why a student might commit plagiarism.
