Abstract [en]

Plagiarism is a serious problem in computer science.This paper reports the analyses of data about plagiarism that wasgathered from master level students in computing. We haveidentified how students perceive plagiarism, how they choose torespond when faced by a scenario involving plagiarism, and whatdrives them to take a particular stance or adopt an action. Thedata-driven analyses show complex understanding of plagiarismand a range of motives that could lead students to plagiarize. Wehave found discrepancies between how students understandplagiarism and how they argue they would act when facing adilemma involving plagiarism. The implications of theseperceptions and motives for computer science educators arediscussed. A number of questions for discussion and furtherinvestigation are raised.
