In Friday College Town Hall, we post a question about college, and you leave an answer in the comment field.
Today’s question is inspired from the New York Times, which cited a survey from Donald L. McCabe, co-founder of the Center for Academic Integrity, that found that…
40% of undergraduates admitted to copying a few sentences from digital sources in written assignments.
Plus, the number of students who believe copying from the Internet constitutes “serious cheating” has declined from 34% to 29%.
How has the digital age affected how students perceive ownership over work? Do you properly cite the work you reference online as you do a book you found in the stacks?
How consciously are students partaking in digital plagiarism?
