How well do students understand plagiarism? What about citation? Where do your students fall on the spectrum of understanding plagiarism? In September 2015, Turnitin released a web-based quiz that was taken by about 25,000 students and educators, worldwide. Join us for an engaging session where we review the quiz results, shed light on student misconceptions about plagiarism, and how to use the quiz to support student understanding about plagiarism in your classes.

This webcast will be recorded. Participants of the live session will receive a certificate of participation.
