How to Recognize Plagiarism

Feedback: 8 of 10

Original Source Material: By instruction I mean any deliberate arrangement of events to facilitate a learner's acquisition of some goal. The goal can range from knowledge to skills to strategies to attitudes, and so on. The learners can be adults or children of any age, background, or prior experience. The setting in which learning takes place can be formal, school-based, on-the-job, or in the community - wherever programs for learning are being designed and implemented.

Your choice "A" was incorrect.

This example is word-for-word plagiarism because the student used a portion of the original document with no quotation marks to identify what text was copied verbatim.  In addtion, although the author is cited and reference provided, no specific locator is provided (e.g., page number), so the in-text citation is incomplete.
