BBC report on English internet-based cheating and plagiarism

The BBC reports on current English cheating and plagiarism. Prof Bassnett says students get away with internet plagiarism because of lack of resources to monitor cheating, coupled with the increasing workload faced by lecturers and examination markers. "Even though some universities now have software in place to monitor plagiarism, most markings are done anonymously and therefore you don't get to know the students' individual writing styles." She believes the trend is a result of the mass higher education embarked upon by the government. "When you have mass education you no longer have expectation of excellence. "Students nowadays want to push the boundaries. Universities are becoming degree-producing factories." (via Edupage)
