Annotated Bibliography on Plagiarism
Cizek, Gregory. “Detecting and Preventing Classroom Cheating: Promoting Integrity in
Assessment.” California: Crown press, 2003. Print
This publication was written by Gregory Cizek in which he offers insight and strategies on how to deal with, detect, and discourage cheating. Cizek gives resources for everything educators need to know about learning and assessment- from what constitutes cheating to future steps on how it can be prevented. Cizek gives many examples from high-tech sources that aid students in cheating and plagiarizing, or aid educators in combating the problem.
The goal of this source is to educate on the topic of plagiarism where it gives the point of view of many factors such as students and teachers. I do not believe that there is an agenda, but a learning source for students and educators. This source is useful because it gives many examples of plagiarism and the many methods of plagiarism. It was published in 2003, and I still believe it is relevant, making it a solid source on researching the topic of plagiarism.

Publications in which Sen.

Paul says that 98% of his speeches are extemporaneous, and he and his staff will now “footnote everything as if it were a college paper.” Sen. Paul States the changes that he is making are intended to “make people leave me the hell alone,” but did not rule out the discovery of more instances.
