How to Recognize Plagiarism

Practice

Practice 8 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: By instruction I mean any deliberate arrangement of events to facilitate a learner's acquisition of some goal. The goal can range from knowledge to skills to strategies to attitudes, and so on. The learners can be adults or children of any age, background, or prior experience. The setting in which learning takes place can be formal, school-based, on-the-job, or in the community - wherever programs for learning are being designed and implemented.

A) The definition of instruction is broad, including any deliberate arrangement of events to facilitate a learner's acquisition of some goal, including the learning of:

Knowledge
Skills
Strategies
Attitudes (Driscoll, 2000)

Your choice "B" was correct.

This example has not been plagiarized. Quotation marks have been used properly for a word-for-word citation from the original author's work, and the student has credited the author correctly.
