Trabajos escritos. El problema del plagio

  • Pedro Morales Vallejo Universidad Rafael Landívar
Palabras clave: plagio, programas antiplagio, evaluación de trabajos escritos, honestidad académica

Resumen

Los estudiantes se ven urgidos a entregar con frecuencia trabajos escritos como parte de su evaluación académica. La disponibilidad de una gran cantidad de información en internet facilita en gran medida la realización de estas tareas. Sin embargo, en ocasiones, puede emplearse de una manera inadecuada según criterios académicos de autoría y de citación. El plagio se ha convertido en un problema que puede ser identificado con programas antiplagio y castigado según los especificado en los reglamentos. Por otra parte, también puede ser aprovechado como una oportunidad para mejorar tanto el proceso de enseñar como de aprender. Este texto asume preferentemente este enfoque.
