November 2015 Site of the Month

The Peer-Reviewed Instructional Materials Online (PRIMO) Committee of the Instruction Section of ACRL is pleased to announce that a new Site of the Month interview has been posted to our committee website.

November 2015 Site of the Month: Plagiarism 101

Interview with: Allison Hosier
Interviewer: Carolyn Seaman

Project Description: Plagiarism 101 is a tutorial that covers the basics of plagiarism, including what it is, what the consequences are, and how to avoid it, in three separate sections that can be viewed separately or as a whole. At the end of each section, students are prompted to answer a multiple-choice “Check Your Knowledge” question in order to proceed. Students who answer correctly are given a choice to continue to the next section or exit the tutorial, while students who answer incorrectly are taken through a brief review. At the end of the review, students who would like further clarification have the option of choosing a longer review in which the incorrect answers are explained more thoroughly. With this design, students who are already knowledgeable about the subject can navigate to sections that are of interest and do not have to sit through review information that may not be relevant to them while students who need more information have opportunities for learning more.
