Plagiarism is wrong. I strongly advise against engaging in any activity that might be considered or misinterpreted as or appear to be plagiarism. This sort of activity includes using someone else’s ideas or work and representing it as your own, failing to give credit to a source of information correctly, and paraphrasing another’s work without credit, among others. Plagiarism also includes using the text or internet to find answers to quiz and/or exam questions and/or collaborating with others when completing a quiz and/or exam.
If you are unsure of what constitutes plagiarism, you will find a good primer at plagiarism.org. Please visit the site and review its materials carefully.
If you are wondering if there are any penalties for plagiarism, please visit the Seton Hall statement on Academic and Professional Integrity.
If I discover that you have engaged in plagiarism, you will fail the course. If I conclude that you knew, or should have known, that your submission needed to be correctly sourced or because you negligently did not take the steps necessary to avoid plagiarism, you will fail the course.
