Plagiarism & MLA Citation Short Write
© 2006-2008, Martha J. Bianco, Ph.D.
The purpose of this short write exercise is to give you practice identifying and avoiding plagiarism and using proper MLA format.
You will be completing a set of online exercises (essentially, an online quiz) at the Diana Hacker A Writer's Reference web site. Your results will be saved online, and I will be able to access your results and grade them. Before you do the Diana Hacker online exercise, please prepare by doing some or all of the following.

The exercise itself is at the bottom of this page, highlighted in yellow.
