  4. 4. Types of “Assignments”<br />Paper assignment is the base assignment for all other assignments types. Used to obtain an Originality Report<br />PeerMark assignment: allows students to review their peers' papers based on scale and free response questions selected by the instructor.<br />Revision Assignment allows students to submit multiple drafts without overwriting the previous drafts/submissions<br />Reflection Assignment is designed as a learning journal where students write about what they learned from the writing process as well as offer feedback on the assignment they worked on. <br />4<br />
  5. 5. Originality Check<br />It determines the congruence of text to sources in:<br /><ul><li>Publicly accessible Internet sources
  6. 6. Every document already submitted to Turnitin*
  7. 7. Assignments from within the class</li></ul>* Lecturers can opt out from Turnitin storing papers. Only the lecturer can access the submitted paper.<br />5<br />
  8. 8. Originality Check<br />PROS<br />CONS<br />Allows for citation verification and quickly provides documentation of alleged plagiarism<br />Detects rewording <br />Both lecturer and students can upload<br />It allows for peer to peer plagiarism detection<br />It dos not search subscription databases (e.g. Library databases, newspapers, etc) unless those materials also appear in assignments previously sent to Turnitin.<br />It does not differentiate between quoted materials and original writing!<br />6<br />
  9. 9. Possible Scenario<br />A lecturer (or student who has access to it) receives an originality report showing a match for the following passage:<br />Today, according to authors of The Death of “e” and the Birth of the Real New Economy doing business electronically is the only way to stay alive and competitive. It is a necessity to get involved in the digital economy. Therefore, “e” is disappearing from our vocabulary because conducting business electronically is a normal, every-day activity.<br />Upon clicking on the comparison link, you find that the text is found in an on-line article, entitled The Death of “e” and the Birth of the Real New Economy. <br />Is this plagiarism or a false positive? Why?<br />7<br />

  45. 45. 29<br />Peermark (2)<br />Create new assignment as in slide 13, and select PeerMark Assignment (can only be created if a class has at least one paper assignment created)<br /> Note: the due date of the base assignment must come before the start date and time of the PeerMark assignment. If anonymity in the review is desired, student submissions should not contain the name of the author in the text or at the top of the paper <br />By default, reviews are anonymous and only those student who submit can review, but you can change it in “Show more options” <br />The start date is the date students can begin reading papers and writing reviews. The due date prevents students from writing reviews after this date. The post date is the date students will have access to reviews written by their classmates <br />
