URKUND will be used to check for plagiarism for all assignments. Your assessments must be written in your words and citations used when referencing material from published sources. One URKUND preview will be available for students to check their assessment prior to submission. Students will only receive an URKUND for one draft submission of their work and again once their assessment have been formally submitted. Do not submit drafts to other Canvas sites, as this will be considered a form of self-plagiarism. Do not submit any material that has been formally submitted to other units. This is a form of academic misconduct.
