How to Recognize Plagiarism

Practice

Practice 2 of 10

Please read the original source material carefully and then select the entry, either "A" or "B," that you think has not been plagiarized.

Original Source Material: In the traditional behavioral paradigm, feedback is the consequence of a response, typically reinforcement for an appropriate behavior.

Source: Driscoll, M. P. (2000). Psychology of learning for instruction (2nd ed.). Needham Heights, MA: Allyn & Bacon.

A) Feedback is not conceived of identically between the various schools of thought in instruction. "In the traditional behavioral paradigm, feedback is the consequence of a response, typically reinforcement for an appropriate behavior" (Driscoll, 2000, p. 65).

References: Driscoll, M. P. (2000). Psychology of learning for instruction (2nd ed.). Needham Heights, MA: Allyn & Bacon.

B) Feedback is not conceived of identically between the various schools of thought in instruction. In the traditional behavioral paradigm, feedback is the consequence of a response. That response is typically reinforcement for an appropriate behavior.

Your choice "B" was incorrect.

This example has been plagiarized because it doesn't use quotation marks or cite the author in the body text. In addition, no reference is provided in the bibliographic section.
