    23. 23. 2. To interpret the originality report<br />What is a Originality Report? <br />It is Turnitin’s analysis of the submitted assignment, identifying any sections with matched text which may indicate plagiarism.<br />An Originality Report is typically generated within 10 to 15 minutes of submission. The report generation time may vary due to the levels of usage during certain periods of the academic year or due to a very large submission.<br />Pedagogically, it is not meant to penalise a student but to improve their academic integrity by avoiding plagiarism. <br />13<br />
    24. 24. 14<br />
    25. 25. 2. To interpret the originality report<br />1. The Originality Report is separated into three main sections in the default view: <br />Top section: a summary of the assignment and submission information.<br />Left section: assignment text with highlighted area for potential plagiarism detected (Note: exclude quoted or exclude bibliography). <br />Right section: information about sources which match the text. <br />2. The functions for excluding material are approximate and human judgement has to be used to determine if this is a case of poor referencing (which would get a poor mark) or plagiarism which is an academic offence.<br />3. Quotations can only be excluded if the quotation is shown with block-indentation or with quotation marks (“”) at the start and end.<br />15<br />
    26. 26. 16<br />The color of the report icon indicates the overall similarity index of the paper, based on the amount of matching or similar text that was uncovered. The possible similarity indices are: <br /><ul><li>Blue - no matching text
    27. 27. Green - one word to 24% matching text
    28. 28. Yellow - 25-49% matching text
    29. 29. Orange - 50-74% matching text
    30. 30. Red - 75-100% matching text </li></ul>IMPORTANT: These indices DO NOT reflect Turnitin’s assessment of whether a paper has or has not been plagiarised. Originality Reports are simply a tool to help an instructor and student find sources that contain text similar to submitted papers. <br />The decision to deem any work plagiarised must be made carefully, and only after in depth examination of both the submitted paper and suspect sources in accordance with the standards of the class and institution where the paper was submitted.<br />
