I am grading a major assignment and about half are blatantly plagiarized. Just whole paragraphs lifted from published journal articles.
The other half, the quality is horrible (w a few exceptions) but at this point, sad as it sounds, it’s a relief to read them because at least they haven’t been plagiarized.
Why??? These are senior undergrads, and masters and PhD students. ???
And yes, it’s clearly written in the syllabus that plagiarism will not be tolerated, and we discussed it at length on the first day of class.
