There is no need to worry about your name being associated with this plagiarism assignment - I will 'scrub' identities at the end of the course.

Here is where you define your team. It's OK that I know who you are; the crucial thing is to hide your team's "role" from everyone until after we've voted on your paper and discussed it in class.

Your group's Pseudonym:

Team members:












Instructions: Upload two versions of your Truth paper. The deceptive version is the version that is 'plagiarised' (if you have a non-honest role.) The honest version is the version that has everything correctly cited, and reveals your team's specific plagiary-role. (Refer to the assignment page, or email Kirk, if you're confused!)

Remember that this assignment does not have the usual Do-Over policy... once you submit, I will grade this, and won't allow (or look at) any further revisions. (I.e., you're stuck with the grade I give it the first time around, like traditional papers in traditional courses.)


Upload your 'deceptive' truth paper, using the "Upload File" link: Upload file

  • The wiki cannot accept DOCX files, so make sure it's another format. Try this screencast to see how to save a 'good' Word file.
  • NOTE: it appears that unpassworded .DOCs don't work, but passworded ones do... so if you need to make this deceptive version password-protected too, please do & upload it. Enter the password (different from your honest version's one!) here:


Upload your PASSWORD PROTECTED honest version of the truth paper using the "Upload File" link: Upload file

  • Password protection in MS Word 2012 is found under the 'File' tab >> "Permissions" button.
  • This screencast might help.
  • Seriously, please ensure it's protected before uploading!! Email me for help if needed!

Now, check the sources you cited in your Deceptive version. (This is just to help 'knit' this into the wiki; you also get a point in the rubric for this.) Note that you can't do this unless you've already entered those resources into the wiki using the New Course Text or New non-Course Text forms...






















































































Instructions: Only complete this part of the form after class discussion of your paper, and we're ready for "the reveal"...! To be clear: only input your password when I tell you to, not before.
