How can you tell when something is plagiarized? When someone plagiarizes something, they usually don’t look at the cite very well, just the information. They will have big words that you know a person there age would not say. They usually have more pages then asked for also.
How can you avoid plagiarism? Well for starters, you can put the links of your information in the reference page. Also if a quote you want in your project comes from a web site, make sure to put in quotation marks and say who said it. Make sure if you are reading something, put it in your own words instead of using the writers story.
