Desperately seeking alternatives: Uncovering assumptions &/or outcomes about the student research process

Ps. This is not about plagiarism, using or not using Wikis. It is simply about the value and utility  of national resources for an otherwise unattained mission in the academic life and times.
  • The End of the College Essay, By Rebecca Schuman : 
  • Everybody in college hates papers. Students hate writing them so much that they buy, borrow, or steal them instead. Plagiarism is now so commonplace that if we flunked every kid who did it, we’d have a worse attrition rate than a MOOC. And on those rare occasions undergrads do deign to compose their own essays, said exegetic masterpieces usually take them all of half an hour at 4 a.m. to write, and consist accordingly of “arguments” that are at best tangentially related to the coursework, font-manipulated to meet the minimum required page-count. Oh, “attitudes about cultures have changed over time”? I’m so glad you let me know."
