Full Answer

Plagiarism and academic dishonesty can be done both intentionally and unintentionally. Sometimes students do not properly understand the different types of plagiarism and may think that if they put the source information in their own words, they do not have to cite it. Planning enough time to properly research or study and talking with the instructor and asking questions can help students ensure they are not penalized.
