How to Recognize Plagiarism

Practice

Practice 3 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: Instructional design theory requires at least two components: methods for facilitating human learning and development (which are also called methods of instruction), and indications as to when and when not to use these methods (which I call situations). Although the term "context" has a similar meaning in lay language and is often used in education, not all aspects of the context influence which methods should be used. Therefore, I use the term "situation" to refer to those aspects of the context that do influence selection of methods.

A) Two components must be present in an instructional design theory. The first component is methods for facilitating human learning and development. The second is those aspects of the context that do influence selection of methods, or the situation.

B) Two components must be present in an instructional design theory. The first component (methods) describes how human learning will be supported, and the second component (situation) describes when certain methods ought to be used (Reigeluth, 1999).
