 The elective teacher gave 22 students zero scores: all plagiarism was dropped.


Recently, students who took lectures on science fiction literature and film and television creation at the University of the Chinese Academy of Sciences received an email from the lecturer Su Zhan.

Mail is written in classical Chinese, with sharp words. Su Zhan gave 22 students zero scores, because their final articles were judged to be plagiarism. Sending mail is to emphasize that this point can not be changed.

On the 13 day, Su Zhan was interviewed by ScienceDaily daily. He speaks very fast, and his style of speaking is as straightforward as his mail style. Plagiarism should not be forgiven.

Find the real hammer to identify plagiarism.

Science and Technology Daily: what kind of lesson is this? What is the way to divide?

Su Zhan: This is an optional course for the whole school. The course results consist of two parts. One is attendance, accounting for 60 points, the other is the final article, accounting for 40 points. That is to say, even if you write poorly, you can pass.

ScienceDaily Daily: how do you find students articles suspected of plagiarism?

Su Zhan: a total of 158 students took part in the course. I also invited experts from other schools to teach and share papers together.

The final article is to require students to write their own science fiction exercises. Some experts feel that the article is suspected of plagiarism in the process of judging papers, and reflect to me; and some articles I take over to see, feel that not normal good, check on the Internet.

ScienceDaily Daily: how to identify students plagiarism, will there be injustice?

Su Zhan: now I confirm the more than 20 plagiarism, I have conclusive evidence. I put those unusually good articles on the search engine sentence by sentence search, if the content is duplicated, I will continue to find the original author of the article, the publication date of the article, carefully compare.

Some copied whole, large, or even the work of a famous writer like Verne; others changed the name of the protagonist, or copied a paragraph from east to west. In short, no word is written by oneself.

I remember an article showed that it came from Baidu post bar, but did not indicate the author, I dare not rashly believe it is plagiarism, continue to search, find the original source of the article, found that is a blog. I went through the other blog posts and found that they were all about the National University of Science and Technology, indicating that the blogger was a student of the National University of Science and Technology. Yes, thats right. I think he wrote it himself.

My yardstick is already very loose. I wrote it in the mail. There must be something missing.

Dare to copy, you have to pay the price.

ScienceDaily Daily: since the final article is 40 points, how can it be zero for the plagiarism?

Su Zhan: because this is too much! I think its unfair. Some people do it honestly, with a lot of effort, maybe because the level is not high, you get a general score; you take less than a few minutes to copy and paste, if I dont see, youre not fooled and you get a high score? Is this not bullying honest people? If all this is opportunistic, it will not be bad money drives out good money.

So I must be strict and fail to pass. Even if you dont write the final article, if you get the attendance score, I can pass it. But deception, no way!

Science and Technology Daily: a course of 158 people elective, confirmed that there are 22 plagiarism, this ratio is not a bit high?

Su Zhan: This is an elective course in liberal arts. I am not surprised at this proportion. Indeed, some students do not attach great importance to liberal arts courses. But since the school has offered me salary, I cant let you pass me. If you are caught cheating, will it be worse?

Students are not afraid of bad reviews.

ScienceDaily Daily: why send such a classical Chinese mail?

Su Zhan: I usually communicate this style at the same time, when I wrote it, I wrote it down at one go. I want to tell the students, dont apologize, dont appeal, dont plead. You plagiarize and do not affect me, do not apologize to me; do not complain, because the evidence is solid; do not ask for love, you have any difficulties, have nothing to do with me, adults do things will bear the consequences. So, its no good to change it to me.

ScienceDaily Daily: will you give yourself so many zero points and worry about your own wind ratings?

Su Zhan: if students are afraid of getting low marks, they can not come to my classes. This is not a strong buy and sell. Our school has always asked teachers to strictly judge the volume, and my practice is also in line with the requirements of the academic affairs office. ScienceDaily Daily: does student zero score affect graduation? Su Zhan: No. As long as the credits are enough, elective courses will be completed. Its just the zero mark on the transcript. It will follow you all the time. ScienceDaily Daily: will you give zero marks if the zero score affects students graduation? Su Zhan: Yes. Even if its a compulsory course, you can hang up and make up for exams. This is also a basic principle that I am a teacher. I can not indulge in plagiarism. You go to any school that attaches importance to teaching, and ask any teacher to answer this question. Source: ScienceDaily daily, editor of China Science and Technology Net: Ji Xue Ying _NN6784
