Importance of plagiarism free CDR report
A CDR (Competency Demonstration Report) report is required by the Institution of Engineers Australia from the students who are willing to work in Australia. It is very important in the migration process. It is mentioned in the Migration Skills Assessment (MSA) booklet that any kind of information picked from the samples available on websites or books will be considered as plagiarism. If the CDR is found plagiarized then the application and the CDR report will be rejected.
The assessors of Engineers Australia are very strict while checking the report for plagiarism. They have specialized software and tools to check plagiarism which can easily detect the copied phrases and sentences from websites. Even if the content of your report accidentally matches with any sample or journals on the internet, it will be rejected. You cannot afford a single mistake in the report. It will pose a serious risk to your candidature.
Possible areas of Plagiarism
Plagiarism can happen in any form. You may not even notice it. It may happen accidentally while you refer to the samples available on the internet or in the MSA booklet. Following are some instances:
- Reframing sentences: Sometimes when you take help from references or sample reports present on various websites you indirectly make your content plagiarised. You try to reframe the sentences and think that it would not cause any trouble. But it actually does. Other people might also refer to the same sample report and exactly do the same what you are trying to do. Hence, your report accidentally matches with the other one.
- Instances from CPD / Career Episodes / Summary Statement: Some people think that if they refer sample CPD/ career episodes/ summary statements and pick up instances from there it will be safe. But this is something that is caught very easily. All three of them must be written in your own words because they are part of your personal information. If they do not match to your profile and are not in compliance with the required competencies then you will get in trouble.
- Accidental plagiarism: In some cases, plagiarism accidentally happens. Like, when you add your qualifications or other details. It may match with someone else’s report even though you have not referred to any sample or anything else. In such cases, the assessors may ask you for an explanation. If they get a satisfactory answer they can ask you to rewrite the report. If not, your application will be simply rejected and suspended for 12 months.
