Quiz #4: Cite And Use Sources Ethically - Quiz

This quiz covers part 4.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    An example of plagiarism would be...

    • A.

      Writing a story about your life.

    • B.

      Reporting that George Washington was the first president of the USA.

    • C.

      Cutting and pasting from a website without citing it.

    Correct Answer
    C. Cutting and pasting from a website without citing it.
    Explanation
    Plagiarism refers to the act of using someone else's work or ideas without giving them proper credit. In this case, cutting and pasting from a website without citing it is an example of plagiarism because it involves directly copying content from a source without acknowledging the original author or providing a citation. This action is considered unethical and a violation of intellectual property rights.

  • 2. 

    It is okay to use quotes word-for-word in my paper, as long as I use quotation marks.  Nothing else is needed.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because using quotation marks alone is not sufficient when using quotes word-for-word in a paper. In addition to quotation marks, proper citation and attribution are necessary to give credit to the original source and avoid plagiarism. This includes providing the author's name, the title of the work, and the publication information.

  • 3. 

    An in-text citation is not required when...

    • A.

      Using your own thoughts or ideas.

    • B.

      Reporting a little known fact.

    • C.

      Quoting directly from a speech.

    Correct Answer
    A. Using your own thoughts or ideas.
    Explanation
    An in-text citation is not required when using your own thoughts or ideas because it is assumed that the original content is coming from the author themselves. In this case, the author is not referencing or borrowing information from any external source, so there is no need to give credit or provide a citation.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Which of the following is an example of a citation style?

    • A.

      MLA

    • B.

      APA

    • C.

      Both A & B.

    Correct Answer
    C. Both A & B.
    Explanation
    Both MLA and APA are examples of citation styles. Citation styles are sets of rules and conventions for how to format and present citations in academic writing. MLA (Modern Language Association) and APA (American Psychological Association) are two commonly used citation styles. They provide guidelines for citing sources such as books, articles, websites, and other types of information in a consistent and standardized way. By following these citation styles, writers can give credit to the original sources and allow readers to easily locate and verify the information being cited.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Works in the Public Domain include...

    • A.

      Works whose copyright has expired.

    • B.

      Books published within in the last 5 years.

    • C.

      Images found online.

    Correct Answer
    A. Works whose copyright has expired.
    Explanation
    Works in the public domain refer to creative works, such as books, music, and art, that are no longer protected by copyright law. This typically occurs when the copyright term expires, which allows the works to be freely used, copied, and distributed by anyone. Therefore, the correct answer is "works whose copyright has expired." This means that these works are no longer owned by any individual or entity and can be used by the public without permission or payment.
