Thanks everyone for your participation in the Development Institute online classroom! Your instructors are reviewing final papers now and will be in touch soon with feedback. CIPE will mail out certificates in January.
Thanks again and best of luck to all of you in your future endeavors.
Dear Development Institute Fall 2010 Students,
As you finish your third essays, please remember the following guidelines regarding CIPE's policy on plagiarism. They apply to both your written assignments AND your discussion contributions. Those students who plagiarize in either will not receive a certificate of completion.
- Copying and pasting without identifying the source is never acceptable. If you take a passage directly from another source, it must be in quotation marks and you must have a footnote citing where it came from. The words in the footnote do not count against the essay word limit.
- If a passage in your essay summarizes another source (meaning that it is not a word-by-word quotation but still uses the key idea and phrasing from the source), you must have a footnote citing where it came from. The words in the footnote do not count against the essay word limit.
- Properly citing other's work in your essay is not enough for it to be considered an original essay. We are not interested in receiving essays that are just a collection of quotations or paraphrases. Your essay must show original thought and analysis. If every sentence or every other sentence in your essay requires a citation, we cannot accept that.
As always, you can turn in your essays by following the link below: http://democracythatdelivers.com/machform/view.php?id=10

The essay prompt is: What types of businesses exist in your country and how are they perceived by the society? How can business organizations become constructively engaged in public policy advocacy?
We look forward to reading your third essays!
