Students are prone to plagiarism when blogging. This year I made extraordinary efforts to head that off.
The grading is now all done for Blog Period 1. Five possible plagiarism cases were identified. One of these was a false positive, three were teetering on the edge of disaster but hadn’t quite gone there, and one was egregious and I am now pursuing that as an Academic Integrity Violation.
This time last year, three possible cases were identified and all three had to be pursued through the violation process. So that is two fewer AI cases this year. Maybe, just maybe, worth the pain?
