The Plagiarism Traffic School is available to aid our students. The Instructor will have to submit an Academic Misconduct Referral. Once a student is referred, the Vice President of Instructional Services will decide if the Plagiarism Traffic School is the correct path. The instructor may also submit a Writing Referral, which will send students to the Citation Boot Camp. The Citation Boot Camp may also be embedded in your course. See below for an explanation of each, look in the box labeled Academic Misconduct v. Writing Referral, or click here to see a video regarding the difference (this will open in a new window):
Academic Misconduct Referral:
Please remember that the Plagiarism Traffic School focuses on the basic skills of formatting and citing. It is not meant to be a punitive process. Our purpose is to help students make ethical writing choices so that they are submitting properly formatted and cited papers. The Citation Boot Camp (CBC) is a very short introduction to explain what citing, formatting and references are. It is 2 modules that your class may be added to or a student may be referred on an individual basis. If you have questions or concerns or would like a presentation regarding the Plagiarism Traffic School or Citation Boot Camp, please feel free to contact Jon: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
