With a click, we have access to every author, article and book. Serves us good because knowledge is right in our fingertips. However, when used by students as homework materials, due largely to copy-and-paste, plagiarism comes into play.

What is plagiarism?
PlagiarismdotOrg, an online initiative that rallies people to prevent the fraud of written work and 'restore integrity' to our society. The organization defines plagiarism, quoting from Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary:

  • to steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one's own
  • to use (another's production) without crediting the source
  • to commit literary theft
  • to present as new and original an idea or product derived from an existing source.
Simply put, plagiarism is like piracy, like stealing.
How to prevent plagiarism
Provide citations - when in doubt, cite it

When not to use citations
You may not provide your sources with these two instances:
  1. Common knowledge - you already know about it even before reading about it. Example, the Wright Brothers invented the airplane.
  2. Fair use - quotations of a short length for the sake of argument.

    Impact of K-12 to ALS and A&E Passers

    Ano nga ba ang epekto ng K-12 sa Alternative Lerning System (ALS)? Simula school year 2016-2017, ang mga Grade 10 o 4th year high school students ay magsisimula nang mag-aral ng senior high school sa halip na magpunta sa kolehiyo. Ang ALS Accreditation and Equivalency (A & E) Exam ay ang katumbas ng high school diploma para sa mga nag-aral sa pamamagita ng ALS.

    Kailangan ba ng mga A & E passers na dumaan pa sa senior high school bago makatuntong sa kolehiyo o katumbas nito? Ayon sa website ng Department of Education, ang mga nakapasa ay maari nang dumiretso sa sekondarya o post-secondary schools.

    Passers are qualified to enroll in secondary and post-secondary schools (DepEd website, retrieved 28 June 2016).

    Ang ibig sabihin, ang mga A & E passers ay hindi na kinakailangang mag-senior high school. Subalit, ang mga high school (HS) graduate na may diplomang pang sekondarya na hindi pa nage-enroll sa kolehiyo ay mayroon na lamang itong school year at 2017-2018 para mag-enroll …
