Reducing plagiarism


Reducing plagiarism through designing out¬†opportunities for copying and ‘faking’ learning can encourage students to take a more active approach to their learning.

This leaflet produced by Oxford Brookes encourages reducing plagiarism through testing the assessment task you have designed to see if it encourages ‘making’ or ‘finding and faking’ in three easy steps:

  1. Reduce the risk of plagiarism that might result from students finding answers
  2. Have a strategy in place in case you need to ask for evidence of how students made a piece of coursework
  3. Build in checks to confirm who produced the piece of coursework

More details is given under each of these three headings, providing tested methods for reducing plagiarism.
