Before you hand in your assignment that you have done some research on, before you put in your report with your quotes and such, go through this checklist and make sure you did not plagiarize.
- Did you make a list of all the books, articles, websites, and other sources you used?
- Did you keep track of which information came form which sources?
- When you used sentences just as they were in the source, did you always put quotation marks around them?
- When you summarized ideas in your own words, did you remember to give credit to the original author?
If you said "YES" to all of these, then you're fine.
