What is plagiarism?

hsc all my own work2
HSC: All My Own Work

“Plagiarism is when you pretend that you have written or created a piece of work that someone else originated. It is cheating, it is dishonest and it could jeopardise your HSC results.”

Board of Studies, HSC Assessments and Submitted works, Advice to Students, 2006.

Plagiarism is dishonest.

It is a legal, moral and scholarly requirement that you must acknowledge the ideas of others when you use them to build your own insights and understanding.

Plagiarism detection methods are getting more and more sophisticated.

hsc all my own work4
HSC: All My Own Work

As an HSC student, you are seeking an academic qualification of high standing.

Part of gaining this is learning academic conventions which demonstrate the depth of your research and your intention not to plagiarise.

hsc all my own work5

hsc all my own work6

How is plagiarism detected?

hsc all my own work10
HSC: All My Own Work
  • Sometimes it’s very obvious. If your writing varies in style, this is a sure sign of plagiarism.
  • If you don’t have a reference list or citations.
  • Teachers check the reference list.
  • Teachers are usually expert in the subject matter.
  • When two assignments submitted are identical or very similar.
  • Teachers use software such as “Turnitin”.

What are the implications for plagiarism when accessing information from the Internet?

hsc all my own work12
HSC: All My Own Work
  • The same scholarship principles apply no matter what the source of information used. The only difference is the form of acknowledgement.
  • “Students might plagiarise because they are less rigorous in their application of scholarship principles and practice.”

Board of Studies, HSC Assessments and Submitted works, Advice to Students, 2006.

Can students be penalised if they plagiarise unintentionally?

hsc all my own work15
HSC: All My Own Work

Yes

It is the responsibility of all students to understand what constitutes plagiarism and how to avoid it.

hsc all my own work16
HSC: All My Own Work

Scenario - intended or unintended?

A student downloads an assessment from a website. The essay question is exactly what he has been asked. So, because of shortage of time, he uses it.

Intended or unintended?

hsc all my own work17
HSC: All My Own Work
  • Intended

A clear case of deliberate plagiarism. There might be excellent material on this website that can be used to consolidate your research, but not to directly copy and paste.

hsc all my own work18
HSC: All My Own Work

Scenario - intended or unintended?

A student completes his research assignment ready to submit. One of his parents makes changes to the work without the student’s knowledge. The student prints the amended version and hands it in as his own work.

Intended or unintended?

hsc all my own work19
HSC: All My Own Work
  • Unintended

The student really believed that the work submitted was his own work.

However, it is still treated as plagiarism.

hsc all my own work20
HSC: All My Own Work

Scenario - intended or unintended?

A student allows her sister, a theatre director, to help her prepare a monologue for a performance in HSC Drama. She allows her sister to make all the decisions for the performance including character interpretation, use of the stage space and costumes and props. She does not acknowledge any assistance in her logbook and when her teacher remarks on her rapid improvement in the quality of her performance at school, she fails to mention the help she had from her sister.

Intended or unintended?

hsc all my own work21
HSC: All My Own Work
  • Intended

There is clear evidence of intention to cheat.

Even if this student was unaware that she should acknowledge her sister, she is required to be aware.

hsc all my own work22
HSC: All My Own Work

Scenario - intended or unintended?

You have been working on your paintings for your Visual Arts Body of Work. You have used a number of motifs from an Aboriginal artist’s work which you saw on a trip to the Northern Territory, but have done so unconsciously. It doesn’t occur to you that you should record the source in your journal.

Intended or unintended?

hsc all my own work23
HSC: All My Own Work
  • Unintended

You didn’t know that what you were doing was wrong.

However, it is still treated as plagiarism.

hsc all my own work24

How do students avoid plagiarism?

hsc all my own work25
HSC: All My Own Work

Simple

Just acknowledge the sources you have used.

Using the Information Process may help you avoid plagiarism.

hsc all my own work26
HSC: All My Own Work

How easy is it to detect plagiarism?

hsc all my own work27
HSC: All My Own Work

Very easy

Teachers are very skilled in detecting plagiarism. They may require students to confirm their knowledge of the topic orally if they suspect plagiarism.

Plagiarism detection methods are becoming more and more sophisticated as technology is used to expose malpractice.

hsc all my own work28
HSC: All My Own Work

Are there different rules regarding plagiarism when information is accessed from the World Wide Web?

hsc all my own work29
HSC: All My Own Work

No

The same rules apply.

The only difference is that the form of acknowledgement for web-based sources is different.
