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.
This quiz was created by the Digital First Connecticut newsrooms. Steve Buttry wrote about why this kind of quiz was necessary in this blog.
Among the reasons for giving this kind of quiz is that the rules of aggregation and attribution and linking are changing so the quiz serves as a review.
