Academic Honesty Quiz

Perry Winkle found this in his favorite book, The Puritan Dilemma : "Williams was an avowed Separatist: he felt no attachment whatever to the Church of England. In fact, since the churches of England were contaminated by the admission of unregenerate persons to communion, he could not regard them as churches at all. .... He could not bring himself to soil his new purity by joining in worship with people who, though pure themselves, failed to renounce the impurities of England. ... Here was a Separatist indeed, who would separate not only from erroneous churches but also from everyone who would not denounce erroneous churches as confidently as he did." (The Puritan Dilemma, 109) Perry wrote in his paper: Roger Williams was the perfect example of 'Separatists Gone Wild.' He refused to worship in the Anglican church. He denounced it as a false church. But he also refused to worship with anyone who did not call the Anglican church a false church too. He didn't put a footnote after this sentence. Is this plagiarism?

Question 8

4 out of 4 points

George E. Porgie found these sentences in his textbook: "The arrival of peace meanwhile triggered a large population movement from settled parts of the original states into frontier areas like upstate New York and across the Appalachian Mountains into Kentucky and Tennessee. To settlers, the right to take possession of western lands and use them as they saw fit was an essential part of American freedom. They paid no heed to Indian land titles and urged the government to set a low price on public land or give it away." (Foner, Give Me Liberty, 215).

George wrote this in his paper: Peace triggered a big population movement from settled parts of the older states into frontier areas. To these settlers, the right to use western lands as they saw fit was an essential part of American freedom. They ignored Indian land titles and asked the government to set cheap prices on public land or give it for free.

He put a footnote, but not quotation marks, because he changed a few of the words. Is this plagiarism?

Answer

Selected Answer: c.

Yes. He changed a few words, such as changing "original" to "older," but nearly all of the words came from Foner. It's not exactly word for word, but he's borrowed a lot of Foner's words, and he hasn't put them into quotation marks.
