Plagiarism Resources at UNC-Charlotte
• The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) is the University's primary resource for instruction and information on how to implement and make the most of our online course management system, Moodle. They can help you activate a plagiarism detection feature for your course, built into Moodle, that relies on the widely used anti-plagiarism service, turnitin. Turnitin is a "plagiarism prevention system that makes it easy to identify students who submit unoriginal work. It acts as a powerful deterrent to plagiarism before it starts." Turnitin works by checking your students' papers against a large database of millions of published works, other student works submitted to its database and a copy of the publicly accessible Internet.
• The CTL has also addressed plagiarism through highlighting a Plagiarism Quiz and Tutorial, developed by Dr. Theodore Frick to help his own students who struggle with this issue. His online quiz and How To Recognize Plagiarism article have attracted thousands of users.
This is the appendix (the only appendix) attached to the UNC-Charlotte Code of Student Academic Integrity. It explains what plagiarism is at this University, and, if you read nothing else, YOU, as a STUDENT, need to read this.
• UNCC's own Dr. Goolkasian has developed Guidelines to Avoid Plagiarism
