What is plagiarism?
Plagiarism is a very serious offense. Every employee in Digital First Media newsrooms needs to be fully aware of what practices are not acceptable by our journalistic ideal, and by our readers’ expectations. The purpose of this quiz is to gauge what you know about plagiarism and attribution standards in the digital age. We need to evaluate what practices require re-enforcement and what training we need to provide you with as a representative of Digital First.
