  • 9. Why is plagiarism wrong?
    It is wrong to plagiarise as it badly affects your learning
    Plagiarism involves both stealing someone else's work and lying about it afterwards
    Plagiarism is a form of academic dishonesty, as bad as cheating in an examination.
  • 10. How would lecturers know that I have plagiarised?
    Ngee Ann Polytechnic uses a software called SafeAssign, which can detect copying in student’s submissions.
    SafeAssign detects copying. This could be:
    • Dishonestly copied materials from another source (plagiarism)
    • 11. Properly referenced quotes from another source (no problem)
  • How would lecturers know that I have plagiarised?
    SafeAssign indicates the proportion of an assignment copied from other sources.
    Your lecturers will determine if plagiarism has actually occurred by determining if the copied passages were properly referenced in 2 places:
    The body of the assignment; and
    In the reference list.
