Adjudicating the Group Project

??

  • Mrs. James just received electronic copies of her students’ final projects. The students also submitted their assignments to turnitin.com (a software that helps detect plagiarism).

  • Mrs. James reviews the originality reports via turnitin.com and she is concerned about the high similarity index for one of the groups.

MENU


What should mrs james do first
What should Mrs. James do first?

Meet with the class and warn against plagiarism.

Refer the group to the Dean to be censored

E-mail the group for them to confirm they intended to actually submit that paper in question.

Please click on the answer that correspond with your choice

Referring the group to the Dean might be necessary later, but is not the ideal thing to do first. The teacher needs to first allow the group to confirm that the paper is the one they intended to submit for grading. The students are given the benefit of the doubt in case they had inadvertently submitted the wrong paper.

MENU

Most, institutions provide adequate information to students about plagiarism. The other students’ papers were O.K., which does not suggest that they need a warning. The first step the teacher needs to take is to allow the group to confirm that the paper is the one they intended to submit for grading. The students are given the benefit of the doubt in case they had inadvertently submitted the wrong paper.

Great answer! In the institution in question, when a teacher suspects that a paper has been plagiarized the first step the teacher needs to take is to allow the group to confirm that the paper is the one they intended to submit for grading. The students are given the benefit of the doubt in case they had inadvertently submitted the wrong paper.

  • Mrs. James decides to give the paper a closer review to confirm the suspected areas of plagiarism.

  • The originality report (next screen) shows the first section of the paper. The group seem to have used several sources

  • Review the words that are highlighted from the four sources (colored) and help Mrs. James decide if this section is plagiarized.

MENU



Is the section plagiarized
Is the section plagiarized?

No doubt. But give the group a chance. The plagiarized sections are minimal.

No. Those are common words that could be used in any paper without being copied.

Certainly! Look, over 40 words were copied without any citation.

Some teachers ignore plagiarism issues (e.g., to avoid awarding penalties that might lead to expulsion or court cases). But would ignoring the issue be fair to the students in the long run? It is good that that the words highlighted are common words that students generally use when writing a research paper. Hence, we can safely conclude that this section was not plagiarized.

MENU

Good try. At first glance it seems like the texts of the paper were generated from several sources. But a closer look reveals that the words highlighted are common words that students generally use when writing chapter one of a research paper. Hence, we can safely conclude that this section was not plagiarized.

MENU

Smart choice! Although there were no citations, a closer look reveals that the words highlighted are common words that students generally use when writing chapter one of a research paper. Hence, we can safely conclude that this section was not plagiarized.

  • Mrs. James reviews another section of the group’s paper to confirm the suspected areas of plagiarism.

  • The originality report (next screen) indicates that the group noted the sources that were cited.

  • Review the words that are highlighted from the four sources (colored) and help Mrs. James decide if this section is plagiarized.

MENU



Is the section plagiarized1
Is the section plagiarized?

Oh no! All sources were cited. Looks like a good research paper to me.

Yes. This paper lacks original work. Where is the group’s contribution?

Certainly! This paper needs more citations.

MENU


10 50 points2
10/50 points

This was a bit tricky, but teachers need to be keen to look beyond the surface. Although the sources are cited, and the paper looks like a good research, the paper contains no original work.

MENU


20 50 points2
20/50 points

Not in this case. What we need is not more citations. Give a keener look at the paper. Do you see any specific contribution from the group? Although the sources are cited, and the paper looks like a good research, the paper contains no original work.

MENU

Excellent! You were keen enough to look beyond the surface. Although the sources are cited, and the paper looks like a good research, the paper contains no original work.

  • Mrs. James reviews and finds other sections of the paper that were plagiarized. She compiles the evidences to make her decision.

  • This is the group’s first case of plagiarism. Mary is a likeable hardworking student; Thomas is a bit disoriented and at times disorganized; while Peter is a student who is known to challenge his grades.

  • A confirmed case of plagiarism (if passed by the academic misconduct committee) might range from an F to expulsion.

MENU


What should mrs james do
What should Mrs. James do?

Give the group the plagiarism evidence and an order which includes requirements to be complied to and possible penalties if the requirements are not met.

Give the group full grade with a reprimand.

Refer the group’s paper to the Chair of the academic misconduct committee.

It may be unfair to both the group and the other students to give the group full marks when some portions of their paper contain no original work. Since this is their first case, Mrs. James feels that if the group adheres to her stipulations they might be spared from greater unfavorable penalties.

MENU

Referring the group’s paper to the academic board of misconduct could come later (depending on the group’s response). However, since this is their first case, Mrs. James feels that if the group adheres to her stipulation they might be spared from greater unfavorable penalties.

Good decision. It may be unfair to both the group and the other students to give the group full marks when some portions of their paper contains no original work. However, this is their first case and Mrs. James feels that if the groups adhere to her stipulations they might be spared from greater unfavorable penalties.

  • On receipt of Mrs. James stipulations the group meets to decide how to proceed.

  • Hard working Mary is shocked. Disoriented Thomas is upset. Peter is concerned about his GPA and is up for a challenge.

End the immediate search and wait to see if the boy showed up.

What should the group do
What should the group do?

I know we cited our sources correctly. Plagiarism has a lot of grey areas. Lets challenge. Moreover, my dad’s a lawyer.

How petty? This is a research paper, how more original can we get? I am going to maintain that the work is all ours!

Let’s work with her stipulations. We might be still able to get a good passing grade. What if we are wrong? I hate the possible penalties.

Later the group meet to discuss their fate

I wish you guys had discouraged me from trying to prove our innocence. Mrs. James has referred our paper to the academic misconduct committee. I can’t imagine what they will do next!

I’m not worried. My sections in the paper are fine.

I told you not to. You insisted. Now we might all suffer because of your doing!

  • Mrs. James met with the academic misconduct committee regarding the group’s claimed innocence despite the evidences of the plagiarized paper.

  • Mrs. James e-mails the response to the group.

The committee has decided to give us a failing grade for this course! Are they for real! I feel like I’m dreaming.

Its too late to appeal now. We’ve lost our chance. Dad confirmed that they also had the option of expelling us from the program.

I worked too hard for this. But the university stipulates that we are all responsible for the group work.

Mrs. James didn’t seem moved when I told her about my lawyer. Dad reviewed the university rules and he said it would be a dead case. Now Mrs. James has referred our paper to the academic misconduct committee.

I wonder if I can drop this course? I might be in the biggest trouble.

What? If only you guys had listened to me. Now we might all have to suffer for this!

Wow, the academic committee is hard. They gave us a failing grade for this assignment! I feel terrible for you guys. Peter made this decision, but I feel most responsible for our fate.

We have to work double time to get even a passing grade in this course. This area was shady but the committee is correct. In fact they could have failed us for the entire course.

I worked too hard for this. But the university stipulates that the entire group is responsible for whatever is submitted

MENU

I didn’t even feel like doing the paper in the first place. Now we have to redo it?

Mrs. James is hard to please so I’m not getting my hopes up. But I’m grateful. Dad said that it could be worse. She could have failed us for the entire assignment.

See? It is always good to own up to our mistakes. Mrs. James is kind enough to give us a chance to resubmit the plagiarized sections for a passing grade.

The group meets again for the final verdict

Thank goodness. We are not going to fail!

I am more concerned about my GPA. And after all that work. I’m glad she is pleased with our resubmission. I’m glad we follow your decision Mary.

I have certainly learned a lesson. But things are not so dismal. We can still get a reasonable grade - considering what could have been done.
