Guidelines For Student Avoidance Of Plagiarism


A.

What is Plagiarism?


Plagiarism is the unacknowledged use of another person’s ideas, words or
work. The work submitted by a candidate, if not his or her own, must make
clear acknowledgment of the work of others by means, for example, of
bibliographic
notes or the use of quotation marks with acknowledgment of the
original author. Plagiarism may embrace more than a candidate copying the
work of others and presenting it as his or her own in dissertation, projects,
essays or other submitted work. It also i
ncludes reproducing an author’s
written material from memory in the examination room in verbatim or near
form without acknowledgment. In short, students must not pass off the written
works of others as their own either inside or outside the examination roo
m.


B.

Methods To Avoid Plagiarism by Students


1.

Students should be informed of the consequences of plagiarisms
especially in term papers, group projects, report etc.


2.

They should be shown the methods in the acknowledgment of another
person’s work or
idea, e.g. the work to be within quotation marks
followed by in brackets, the author’s name and year of publication. The
source is then cited in the bibliography section.


3.

They should be shown the methods of expressing ideas in their own
words and not t
o copy word for word from a text.


4.

In a group project, students should write down the names of the
members of the groups to indicate a common source of the data.
However, the use and interpretation of the data must be in each
student’s own words. He or
she must do the write
-
up individually
without reference to others in the group except where due
acknowledgement is made.


5. To discourage plagiarism, the title page of all assignments presented for
assessment must include the following statement and be

signed by the
student :



“ I declare that this is my own work except where due references are
made”.


C.

Procedure for handling Plagiarism


1.

The lecturer/tutor refers the piece of work to Head of the Department /
Dean of Faculty;
