At Christendom, academic rigor and excellence is expected of every student. To this end, integrity is an essential part of the academic process. In an effort to educate each student thoroughly about the concept of plagiarism, every student at Christendom must complete a tutorial and pass an online test about plagiarism. This requirement holds even if you completed the tutorial last academic year. This test must be completed before you come to campus in August or you will not be permitted to submit written assignments during this academic year. Instructions for using the tutorial, registering for the test, taking the test online, and forwarding the certificate that indicates you passed the test can be found below.
How long will this take? In total, watching the tutorials and taking the test should take no more than two hours. The tutorial can be accessed at your convenience; you do not need to watch all of the material at once. You do need to complete the test and email your certificate to the Academic Dean. If you have any questions about the plagiarism tutorial or test, please email the Academic Dean, Dr. Ben Reinhard, email@example.com.
Step 1: Watch and complete each section of the tutorial HERE. The tutorials are available for free online through the University of Indiana website. Each of the five tutorials include videos explaining the concept of plagiarism and giving examples of different kinds of plagiarism. They also include practice questions for the larger test.
Step 2: Register to take the exam HERE. This is a two-minute process that requires entering your email address (use your Christendom.edu) and a few quick biographical details. Please select “I am an undergraduate or advanced high school student” to begin the registration process.
Step 3: Take the test HERE. You can take the test as many times as necessary to pass, though the test will not tell you exactly which questions you missed. It will give you general information about which areas you should brush up on if you do not pass.
Step 4: Forward your certificate to the Academic Dean at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once you have passed the test, a certificate will be emailed to the account you provided. Once forwarded, we will record that you have met this requirement.
You will be required to hand in a copy of this certificate with the first written assignment in courses here at the College.
