Turnitin 30-Minute Webcast Series: How Students Perceive Plagiarism
30-Minute Webcast Series
How Students Perceive Plagiarism
Turnitin's Plagiarism Spectrum identified the ten most
common types of plagiarism and then elicited instructor feedback on
the frequency and severity of these types. But do students agree? Do
they see these types as acts of plagiarism? And is there a disconnect
between what they believe and what they do in regard to plagiarism?
This webcast will examine the results of a Turnitin survey of over
1800 students conducted in late 2012. We’ll share key findings about
how students view plagiarism and discuss the implications of these
survey results for educators.

busy educators who want to stay current with the latest trends and
technologies on preserving academic integrity, improving student
writing across the curriculum, and promoting student success.
