Tired of getting papers copied from the internet?

Making a plan

The Quiz

1) Is it OK to submit the same or substantially the same paper as you have submitted to another current or previous class?

2) I know that I’m not supposed to copy other people’s words. Is it OK to paraphrase by changing ever 3rd or 4th word to a synonym?

3) As long as I cite where everything comes from, I don’t really need to use quotes.

4) As long as I put all of my citations in quotations, I never violate the academic integrity standards.
