A presentation from the "Docentendag" (Lecturer day) by Tiemen Nanninga and me on Turnitin. We have used Turnitin our lectures in several courses of our Urban Environmental Management Master track to check student submissions for plagiarism, for peer-review and to give clear and transparent feedback online via rubrics and built-in comment function. Turnitin was a great help for us in assessment in group and individual assignments, so we share here our experiences and our recommendations for further improvement.

    17. 17. QuickMark and Comments  QuickMark comments  In-text comments  General comments  Different highlighting colours 17
    18. 18. Resubmission of assignments (Revision)  Resubmission of assignments for assessment ● No overwriting over earlier submitted files  Submission only allowed once! 18
    19. 19. Libraries  Libraries allow export of assessment tools from user to user 19
    20. 20. So, why Turnitin?  Fully online  Plagiarism check via originality check  Grade Manager & Quick Mark Manager  Rubrics  Peer review  Libraries for grade manager, rubrics and peer review 20
    21. 21. Students: Pro‟s  Nice and easy accessible tool  Online  Easy to use interface (PeerMark Questions)  PeerMark worked well  Visual plagiarism check 21
    22. 22. Students: Con‟s  No in-text changes possible (spelling and grammar) ● “Track changes”  No downloading  Setting a minimum number of words at „explanatory questions‟ resulted in confusion 22

    24. 24. Lecturers: Con‟s  Needs time to learn  Not always straight-forward and intuitive ● Help limited within Turnitin ● “Trial and error”  Import / export files from / in standard formats is not possible  Not possible to see who has given a QuickMark (joint review)  Group making process for peer review  New for students 24
    25. 25. Students: Recommendations  Make track changes within the text instead of only comments. Especially for correcting spelling/ grammar  Drop the minimum amount of words for feedback 25
    26. 26. Lecturers: Recommendations  Export / import feature(s) and options  Allow editing of rubric after deleting assignments  Offline feature to review with later syncing  Link groups in BB to Turnitin  Track changes for Revision Assignment  Better/ clearer help manuals 26
    27. 27. Next steps for us  Use of BB and Turnitin in all courses  Improve rubrics / transparency  Use other functions of BB / Turnitin  Dissemination of our knowledge ● Development of manual for use of Turnitin based on our experiences ● Paper, video, website ● Interested? Let us know (letter of interest) so we can secure funding and time! 27
