Faculty Training Overview

JIU Plagiarism Policy
One of the educational principles we want to incorporate in our JIU students is to give credit for original
ideas and information resources. We need to guide students to learn and include APA formatting in their
written assignments and final projects. For many students this is very challenging.
As professional educators we need to be supportive and patient as we guide students to be proficient
in documenting their resource materials.
While we need to allow students time to process and learn the APA formatting requirements, at the
same time, JIU needs to provide a balance that will enforce the ethical and legal requirements of
resource documentation. This balance is provided by our JIU Plagiarism Policy. The policy provides
an opportunity for students to learn and apply APA guidelines through the submission of a revised
assignment. However with repeated plagiarism violations students will not be allowed to attend JIU.

JIU Copyright Guidelines

JIU is a For-Profit University and because of this categorization does not qualify for the Fair Use policy
of Copyright law that allows for the liberal use of copyrighted information for educational purposes.
The second part of this training discusses the best resources to use to provide links and additional
references for your students within your courses.

Script 3:
We will begin with the plagiarism policy. The JIU Plagiarism Policy encourages the student to learn how
to prevent plagiarism by allowing the student to submit a correctly revised version of their assignment
within their first plagiarism violation. In the process of correcting their assignment the student is guided
to learn about the tools that are available to help them- such as Smarthinking, Turnitin, the Publication
Manual of the American Psychological Association and the JIU Librarian.

Slide 4: Plagiarism Definition
Within an instructional setting, plagiarism
occurs when a writer deliberately uses
someone elses language, ideas or other original
(not common knowledge) material
without acknowledging its source

Council of Writing Program Administrators.
Defining and Avoiding Plagiarism:
The WPA Statement on Best Practices. Retrieved from
http://wpacouncil.org/positions/wpaplagiarism.pdf

Script 4:
Before we look more closely at the JIU Plagiarism policy, lets review the JIU Definition of Plagiarism.
This definition is taken from the
Council of Writing Program Administrators
Within an instructional setting, plagiarism occurs when a writer deliberately uses someone elses
language, ideas or other original (not common knowledge) material without acknowledging it source.
This definition applies to texts published in print or on-line, to manuscripts, and to the work of other
student writers.
Slide 5: Important Distinctions
Determine the intent of the student
Knowingly submitting someone elses text or
ideas as ones own this is plagiarism
1

Carelessly or inadequately citing ideas and
text taken from another source this is not
citing the reference adequately this is not
plagiarism
1

Script 5:
To decide if plagiarism has occurred, its important to
determine the intent of the student.
4

Plagiarism Training Scripts for slides_ Kthorland_Sept_2_2013

Is the student knowingly submitting someone elses text as ones own? If yes, then this is plagiarism.
Has the student carelessly or inadequately cited ideas and text borrowed from another source?
If this is the case this is not plagiarism. This is a failure to properly cite a resource.


Slide 6: Indications of Plagiarism
When a student knows that written
assignments require in text APA citations
and still fails to include in text references
for content and ideas
Inclusion of scholarly statements beyond
the expertise of the student that are not
referenced



Script 6: Plagiarism violations may be indicated by lack of in text citation within written assignments,
inclusion of scholarly text that is beyond the scope of the students expertise.

Slide 7: Turnitin reports-by themselves are not
indicators of plagiarism
Turnitin reports do not determine whether a
document contains plagiarized content.
Turnitin report may indicate a low level of
originality but if proper intent of including
citations is indicated in the assignment,
plagiarism has not occurred.
Instructors make the determination of
whether plagiarism has occurred by evaluating
student intent, whether citations are present and
the level or writing
Script 7:
In order to identify plagiarism Instructors must be aware of the intent of the student and know how to
interpret Turnitin reports. Turnitin reports may indicate a low level of originality but if there is an honest
effort on the part of the student to provide citations even if incorrectly formatted, plagiarism has not
occurred.
Turnitin reports may indicate the use of source material, but it does not identify plagiarism. It is the
Instructor who determines whether plagiarism has occurred by evaluating the student intent, whether
citations are present, and the level of writing.

Slide 8: Role of the Office of Student Affairs
The Office of Student Affairs does not
determine whether plagiarism has occurred
Plagiarism violations are determined
by our Instructors.
The Office of Student Affairs determines
how many plagiarism violations the student
has received and the necessary consequences
Script 8:
The Office of Student Affairs does not determine when plagiarism has occurred. Plagiarism violations are
determined by our Instructors. The Office of Student Affairs determines how many plagiarism violations
the student has received and the necessary consequences.
Slide 9: Consistent Information
All JIU students are required to attend a JIU
Orientation course
The JIU101 and JIU501 Orientation courses
contain information about the JIU Plagiarism
Policy
The JIU Student Handbook and Faculty
Handbook contain the JIU Plagiarism Policy



Script 9:
JIU has made an effort to provide consistent information about our Plagiarism policy in the same
information in our mandatory student orientation courses, student and faculty handbooks and faculty
training.
