When a professor at Berkley was asked as to why students keep getting low scores in evaluation of their research papers, this is what he said: "The reason lies in the fact that many students fall into the trap of over- generalization, when it comes to writing a research report. Many of them compile a plethora of disjointed facts, but can't seem to compile them properly. Hence, the end product turns out to be a really disorganized jumble and we are forced to mark them with low grades."
An assistant lecturer of Michigan University commented: "There is no particular legal or technical solution to what's on the Net, it has to come down to the students' and professors' conscience to deter plagiarism. The only solution to it is to make the students aware of the issues and consequences of plagiarism and for the professors to be aware that this is what is happening."
A senior lecturer at in North Central College says that: "Plagiarism has always been there in our society but the Internet has emerged as an alley to plagiarism, i.e. providing an easy access to cheating resources on the web. The Research Paper and Term Paper Writing sites claiming to fix the student's writing related worries in a mere click of the mouse are not only promoting literary theft but because of them, students cease to think. One of such popular sites claims of having 1.6 million customers and one can imagine what the statistics would be, when there are hundreds of these sites flourishing on the net. In the past, students used to consult their seniors, ask their teachers for extra teaching and refer to libraries. But now they just go online, search for a website where online papers can either be bought, ordered, or downloaded for free, and use it as their very own term paper."
A professor in Minnesota commented that: "Colleges and Universities here in America find it difficult to cope up with plagiarism problem, which threatens to ruin the students' creation power and artistry. The aim these students' is to get good grades and in search of their goal, they try to copy the text from every possible site on the internet for free or low-cost papers. The writers, who create such papers for illegal use, claim to write papers from scratch. They say that they know what a teacher would like to find in a paper and keep that in mind while writing papers. These claims act as bait for students who easily fall for them. The teachers should try to put a halt on the proceedings of such illegal writing services by keeping a proper check on the students and by providing them complete assistance and guidance."
