AP1 Plagiarism is defined as “close imitation," or "stealing and publication" of another author's "language, thoughts, ideas, or expressions," and threating them as your own original work (Oxford Dictionary; Random House Compact Unabridged Dictionary). In academia/university work (your assignment in particular), plagiarism is considered academic dishonesty and a breach of journalistic ethics. Plagiarism is disapproved on the grounds of moral offence, and cases of plagiarism can involve liability for copyright infringement. For more information about plagiarism, kindly surf: http://plagiarism.org/plag_article_what_is_plagiarism.html. QP2 What does plagarism check? AP2 Plagiarism checks the orginality of your assignment against other people’s work. QP3 What is similarity check? AP3 Similarity check is conducted once you submit your assignment. This exercise compares the content of your assignment against all other learners’ assignments for resemblance. QP4 If my assignment contains Appendix with articles, will they be counted in the similarity checking? AP4 No 2
  3. 3. ITLA: updated 15 Sept 11 QP5 If my report contains direct quotations, will they be counted in the similarity checking? AP5 Yes. Similarity check compares the content of your assignment against all other learners’ assignments for resemblance. QP6 To what extent do I need to rephrase the statements from certain sources so that they will not be counted in the similarity checking? AP6 Similarity check compares the content of your assignment against all other learners’ assignments for resemblance. The analysis include all statements regardless of whether they are rephrased. QP7 What is APA referencing? AP7 When you are asked to write in APA Style® in your assignment, it means referring to the editorial style that many of the social and behavioural sciences have adopted to present written material in the field. APA Style was first developed by a group of social scientists about 80 years ago. They wished to form sound standards of communication. Since then, the APA Style has been adopted by experts in many fields and has been used by writers around the world. (American Psychological Association, 2011) For more information, kindly refer to http://apastyle.org/about-apa-style.aspx QP8 I am confused when gathering data for answering assignments following the ‘APA styles’. Do we need to reconstruct using our own sentences, or can I present it exactly as I found it? The problem is that what I have done so far were sometimes accepted and sometimes not accepted. AP8 Your assignments require you to attempt a particular task and present it as your own original work. Presenting an idea or work as your own exactly as you found it is considered as plagiarism. However, cases of plagiarism can be avoided by citing where you get the information and rephrasing it as your own. In order to prevent plagiarism, you need to simply acknowledge that certain material has been borrowed, and providing your audience with the necessary information to locate that source. The APA referencing style can help you acknowledge original material. 3
