An example: Psychology
In response to the unacceptably high incidence rate of plagiarism cases in papers written for psychology courses, especially General Psychology, the Psychology Department faculty have implemented a three stage response.
- All course syllabi include the same department policy statement on plagiarism.
- Students in every psychology course are shown a PowerPoint presentation that includes a plagiarism quiz.
The policy statement and PowerPoint may be downloaded and modified for use by other departments or programs. The PowerPoint examples are formatted APA style but lend themselves to modification in MLA or other discipline-specific styles. If you have any questions about the Psychology Department's efforts, contact the department at 651.690.6203.
