Reviews of the first edition

‘Carroll shows a deep understanding of motives and issues from the students’ points of view, as well as an equally sound appreciation of the problems that academics have in preventing, detecting or bringing to light instances of plagiarised work…The Handbook seems to me to be essential reading for anyone involved in assessment.’
Susannah Hanlon, Northumbria University

‘I will certainly buy this Handbook… and use it. I strongly recommend it to all academics who teach, assess or administrate university courses…’
