In a 2012 study, Turnitin identified the 10 most common types of plagiarism, employing a "Digital 2.0" naming convention--with names like "CTRL-C" and "Remix"--to help students understand the different forms that plagiarism can take. Included with the study was a survey of nearly 900 secondary and higher education instructors, asking their input on the frequency and severity of these types.
This webcast examines the Top 5 types of plagiarism (both intentional and unintentional), highlighting specific examples and presenting strategies for improving student awareness.
