Abstract .

A presentation of the case study about the engineer courso from ((Cefet)) and the copy the texts and attributes credentials.

Detailed proposal

The Wikipedia is used for students around the world. They use wikipedia pages like fonts, sometimes makes copy the texts and does not attributes credentials and does not make verifications about the published informations.

Is an important make observation about how the students believe in Wikipedia contents and how they make credentials.

For this, we will research at engineer students (students from Centro Federal de Ensino Tecnológico de Minas Gerais - CEFET-MG). Students make observations and ask a survey about their homework’s, describing things as accurately as possible is important
