What do you do about this? Do you automatically give them a zero? Do you accept a resubmitted assignment and deduct points? If you deduct points, how many points do you deduct?

Redo

For the first offense, I give them a redo with deducted points. If they do it again, it is a zero, an honor code violation, and a visit with the admin.

Thank you for your response! That sounds fair and reasonable.

I also think tmbg's response is reasonable.

Teaching Honesty

After a disaster of 'Wikipedia Wonderland' being submitted to me, I actually explicitly taught the concept of plagiarising - showing what it looks like, and how copy and pasting something, and then 'putting it into their own words' is still really plagiarising.

My yr 8 students have just finished a major history assignment, where I have explicitly taught bibliography skills and how to take notes (using a modified Cornell system has been successful), and then how to pick out important ideas for a 5 paragraph 'essay'. Its been excruciating, but I think they have finally got the idea of what 'using your own ideas' really means!

Thank you for your responses. I like using the Cornell system. My students will have to do a better job of writing without plagiarizing - I'm going to make this my mission. Thanks again!

Avoiding plagiarising

My chief tool in the fight against cheating? Work is HAND WRITTEN, in class time, based on the whole process of:
  • finding information (Wiki is banned!)
  • making notes
  • using a scaffold for a planning document
  • then write in class, being collected up at the end of the lesson.
They may only have their notes and planning sheet on the desk. ALL notes and plans are handed in with the finished item. IT WORKS!

They get a zero.

Per school policy, they get a zero. It's a grade that can not be made up.

I spend some time talking about plagiarism and they sign a academic honesty form. I spend a lot of time talking about citation and when you have to cite. I don't feel bad for them when it hurts their grade given all the time I tell them not to do it.

That all makes sense. I like having students sign an academic honesty form, especially after so much time has been spent on how to cite resources. Thanks for sharing.
