Plagiarism and HUM 210
Using someone else's ideas or work as your own is a serious offense and can have serious consequences (like flunking!). But often students plagiarize without realizing it. Here's a neat, self-scoring quiz for you to take to see if you really know what is plagiarism (like paraphrasing without giving credit with an in-text citation) and what isn't (like paraphrasing and then giving credit with an in-text citation). Please take the quiz before starting the course.
