Description: The 78-slide tutorial discusses common errors that can lead to plagiarism, including (a) failure to properly cite sources, (b) overreliance on the words or organizational structure of someone else’s work, and (c) overuse of other people’s work, at the expense of one’s own contributions. Students learn how to correct these errors as they progress through five sections of the tutorial: (1) What is plagiarism? (2) Citing sources using APA style, (3) Paraphrasing information, (4) Making it your own, and (5) Preparing a list of references. The resource includes an introduction describing the tutorial and a pool of true-false and multiple choice quiz questions. The answer key for the quiz can be found by accessing the resource after logging into the members-only site or by e-mailing the author.
