Instructing Students in Academic Integrity
Craig, Paul A.; Federici, Elizabeth; Buehler, Marianne A.
Journal of College Science Teaching, v40 n2 p50-55 Nov 2010
Plagiarism is a great temptation to students in this digital age, in areas ranging from the purchase of term papers on the internet to improper citing of sources in reports to the inappropriate use of clickers in the classroom. The authors have explored attitudes about academic integrity among college science students using a survey that was previously published in the business literature (Allen, Fuller, and Luckett 1998). They have also given workshops and developed a number of online resources for students and faculty. From their experiences with both domestic and international students, they believe that they can help them learn to practice academic integrity by combining instruction on the proper use of intellectual property with clear guidelines in preparing course assignments and syllabi. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
