Mini-Essay on Net People and Places
Bloomfield Busts Student's Internet Behavior
Professor Louis A. Bloomfield created a simple computer program that set off a cheating investigation at the University of Virginia in April. The University, famous for its strict honor code, could expel up to 122 students for plagiarism. Students in Bloomfield's introductory physics class were required to hand in a 1,500-word paper via email. In a class that holds up to 500 students a semester, Bloomfield would have had a tough time detecting plagiarism without the computer program. (1) After a helpful hint from a student, Bloomfield designed a software program to search for common phrases and six-word matches in his electronic database. After 50 hours of scanning more than 1,800 papers from the past five semesters, the database found at least 60 matches. (1) In some cases, "virtually the entire paper is the same." (2) Bloomfield and associates suspect that students cut and pasted former classmates' papers. "Technology has made some of the easy way outs very seductive and blurred the lines between what's acceptable and what's not," said Bloomfield. (2) Just as the Internet makes cheating on papers easier and more accessible, technology also provides means to track plagiarism. Each student under investigation will be tried individually. Some students under investigation have graduated from the university and could have their degrees revoked. As a result of Bloomfield's discovery, several campuses will follow his footsteps and attempt to bust Internet plagiarism. Creighton University and the University of Colorado are two schools that plan to participate. (3) David Gies, head of the Spanish department at UVA, said, the case "will send a wake-up call to those students who have forgotten what the community of trust is about." (2)
