Plagiarism Exercise Plagiarism is a serious offense and can negatively affect your college career. Because the consequences of plagiarism can be severe, it is important that you develop a good understanding of just what plagiarism is. Basically, your work needs to be your own. But while the University Policy on Academic Integrity focuses on misusing printed sources by failing to paraphrase or use quotations, ant time your work is not your own you are plagiarizing. And that makes it much more complicated, because sometimes what you think is your own work is not fully your work, and that could lead to problems. Cases Plagiarism can be a subtle issue. Take this quick test to see how well you recognize plagiarism. In each case, determine if the student is plagiarizing: 1. A student has failed her first paper. Frustrated, she buys a paper off the Internet. 2. A student is having problems with her paper so she asks a friend to help her out. The friend makes several revisions, changing sentences and even a paragraph that needed work. 3. A student is having problems with the language of an essay because the sentences are so complex. So, to set-up a quotation he is using, he takes sentences from a critical essay without using quotation marks.
