  3. 3. Turnitin Overview3 www.turnitin.com
  4. 4. Types of “Assignments”• Paper assignment is the base assignment for all other assignments types. Used to obtain an Originality Report• PeerMark assignment: allows students to review their peers papers based on scale and free response questions selected by the instructor.• Revision Assignment allows students to submit multiple drafts without overwriting the previous drafts/submissions• 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.4
  5. 5. Originality CheckIt determines the congruence of text tosources in: • Publicly accessible Internet sources • Every document already submitted to Turnitin* • Assignments from within the class* Lecturers can opt out from Turnitin storing papers. Only the lecturercan access the submitted paper.5
  6. 6. Originality Check PROS CONS• Allows for citation • It dos not search verification and quickly subscription databases provides documentation of (e.g. Library databases, alleged plagiarism newspapers, etc) unless those materials also• Detects rewording appear in assignments previously sent to Turnitin.• Both lecturer and students can upload • It does not differentiate• It allows for peer to peer between quoted materials plagiarism detection and original writing!6
  7. 7. Possible ScenarioA lecturer (or student who has access to it)receives an originality report showing a match forthe following passage: 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.Upon clicking on the comparison link, you findthat the text is found in an on-line article, entitledThe Death of “e” and the Birth of the Real NewEconomy.Is this plagiarism or a false positive? Why?7
