Online Plagiarism Increasing At Colleges

from the cheating-made-easy dept

More and more colleges and universities are catching students who are buying research papers online and turning them in. The funniest example was in one class where two students bought the exact same paper and turned them in. I guess that wasn’t too hard to catch. The article also talks about ways in which professors are working to combat this. Sometimes it just involves doing a Google search of a certain phrase. They also have been asking students to turn in more early drafts and research materials as well.
