TEACHING STUDENTS ABOUT PLAGIARISM: WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE AND HOW IT IS MEASURED
Invitation for Participation in Online Survey
November 11, 2012
Dear Composition Instructor:
You are invited to participate in a research project titled "Teaching Students About Plagiarism: What It Looks Like and How It Is Measured," which serves as Diana Stout's dissertation project.
The purpose of this study is to examine how students are taught to avoid plagiarism by full-time faculty who teach first-year composition. While past studies have examined plagiarism and students, there is little information that examines how educators were taught about plagiarism, how they teach students about plagiarism, how they react to plagiarism, and how they proceed when encountering plagiarism.
This invitation asks that you fill out an online survey, conducted by a third-party survey website. To participate, please proceed to this link, https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/DianaStout. This survey will take about half an hour of your time, not longer than an hour.
At the website, you will find a consent form that needs to be read and acknowledged by you by clicking on the "agree" button before you begin the survey.
Your response and time is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
Jonathan Bush, Ph.D.
English Department Chair
