Overbey, Gail A. U.; Guiling, Shawn F.
Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, v10 n3 p3-22 1999
Examined perceptions about plagiarism, correct source citation, and the evaluation of written assignments containing plagiarized material among 156 college students. Found great variability in students' knowledge/recognition of citation methods and in perceptions about best and fairest way to evaluate plagiarized assignments. Most indicated grades should reflect time and effort and that they should be given an opportunity to rewrite. (EV)
