Writing assignments are an excellent way to assess students’ comprehension of material, however, plagiarism impedes the ability of the teacher to accurately assess the level of information retained by the student. While copying and claiming others’ ideas is plagiarism, proper referencing of those ideas can demonstrate understanding of material, analytical skills, and academic integrity. To assess students’ writing for plagiarism, it is important to first understand how to properly summarize, paraphrase, and quote other people’s ideas and work. This workshop will help teachers better understand differences between summarization, paraphrasing, and quotation. By understanding these concepts, teachers can better assess students’ writing and knowledge of the material they are being assessed on. By the end of this workshop, teachers will be equipped with the necessary skills to identify properly referenced ideas when assessing students’ written work.
