WVU Plagiarism Avoidance Tutorial (eCampus)

 This eCampus embedded Tutorial covers

  • how plagiarism is defined
  • why students may advertently and inadvertently plagiarize
  • possible penalties for plagiarism
  • how to use information ethically in research papers / projects;
  • and where to get help with researching and writing.

Students watch videos, read scripts, or listen to audio covering the Tutorial’s content. Students work through 5 modules, taking self-tests in order to progress from one module to the next.

After completing the last module, students take an exam on the Tutorial’s material. The exam’s grade is immediately entered into the eCampus gradebook. The final exam, consisting of 20 questions, randomly draws from a bank of 58 possible questions.

Students generally require about 1 hour of concentrated work time to complete the tutorial.
