    From the above:

    Early this month, a Thammasat University lecturer failed 10 members of his class after discovering they had plagiarised test answers, calling the practice “deplorable”.

    This is the point, it's up to the teacher to check and enforce it. Most teacher's I know enforce it strongly. I failed a student on an MA course at Chula for this reason, and I was supported by the Thai teachers.

    Several leading schools — including Chiang Mai University and Mahidol University — told Spectrum they had not dealt with any cases of plagiarism.

    Hmmm, it depends how the question was phrased. When I worked at Mahidol, I was given an article to check by one of their professors - I refused because it was plagiarized, and I pointed this out to her strongly...

    It is a problem everywhere in the world, but it is easy to manage. If a student cannot write a basic sentence correctly then gives a perfect essay in with advanced vocab and sentence structures...
    How do I post these pictures???

    A few yearts back i was asked to check some work a uni student was going to hand in as part of her English course.
    I asked if she had copied it.
    She was adamant it was her own work.





    It was in PORTUGUESE.

    I always check but I'd bet most don't check papers thoroughly. And foreigners are often just as bad as Thais from my experience. For some, they are just to lazy to check and often take teaching not very seriously. I've seen plenty with Masters degrees with such a sabai sabai attitude about it all. They help to keep Thailand screwed up and students expectations low. A lot of students have higher standards than many of their teachers including the foreign ones.

    There used to be a website uni students would pull papers from called icheats. Not sure if it's still up. I caught one good student who pulled a paper from that by googling a unique line from her paper. I've also found other stuff by googling phrases or just a couple odd words. Plagiarism is getting more attention these days but its still there and of course it is even a big problem in the west nowadays. When many of us were kids, we just didn't have so much access to information. The word is struggling with it.

    There are quite a few plagiarism checker progs, and both paid and free online plagiarism checker services.

    Surely these should be a boon for the teacher/examiner.

    Can't beat a bit of paraphrasing to get you through something you have no idea about.


    But this is the copy and paste generation.

    In My day, all I had was Encyclopedia Britannica , in the school library, and I had to handwrite out the plagiarised copies.
    It was learning, learning knowledge, and understanding what you had written down.
