Plagiarism Quiz 1. Three different acts are considered plagiarism. What are they? They are misuse of sources, fraud, and non-ethical use of sources. 2. What is ‘common knowledge’? It is knowledge that everyone in the general public knows like the sky is blue. 3. Why is it plagiarism to fail to enclose borrowed language in quotation marks? It is plagiarism because the writer didn’t personally make up the phrase so it isn’t his work. 4. How can you avoid plagiarizing when you are summarizing or paraphrasing a source? It can be avoided by citing sources as much as possible and using quotes when necessary. 5. Is the following passage plagiarized? Why or why not? Original passage (from On Dumpster Diving by Lars Eighner): People scrounge cans because they have to have a little cash. I have tried scrounging cans with an able-bodied companion. Afoot a can scrounger simply cannot make more than a few dollars in a day. One can extract the necessities of life from the Dumpsters directly with far less effort than would be required to accumulate the equivalent value in cans. (p. 309)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
