Peers and Plagiarism: The Role of Student Judicial Boards
Whitaker, Elaine
College Composition and Communication, v59 n1 p125-127 Sep 2007
After reading Kathryn Valentine's article that talked about her interaction with a Chinese student accused of plagiarism, the author was reminded of the effectiveness of student judicial boards. In this article, the author describes the benefits of having a student judicial board in fighting off plagiarism among students. She relates that although she had experienced many workable processes in her twenty-five years of college teaching, nothing has come close to the effectiveness of the student-led honor system. As such, she encourages all her colleagues whose institutions do not have a student judicial process to advocate for its creation.
