Instructional and Technological tools to reduce Plagiarism
Posted by Colorado Adjunct , History at Community College of Aurora on July 22, 2011 at 2:00pm EDT
Over the years I have been a frequent plagiarism detective. I have found, documented, and applied penalties for student excesses in the realm of academic honesty. I currently have a two-fold approach to the elimination of plagiarism.

First, I assign readings on plagiarism and require students to submit a paper outlining their understanding of both plagiarism and academic honesty. This becomes a benchmark if a student claims "I didn't know it was wrong".

Secondly, I use Turnitin's student preview functionality to enable students to review their work before it is submitted to me. This allows for editing to alleviate copied material and insertion of proper citations.

Since adoption of these strategies, instances of plagiarism have disappeared. Nice when something works!
