Accessing the Report
  1. Select Go to portfolio and click on the Show details link to view status of your
     submission




  2. If a grey box with two dashes appears under this indicates that your paper has been
     submitted but the report has not yet been generated
  3. When a report has been generated, an icon is placed in the Originality column of the
     portfolio page
  4. To open a report, click on the percentage and report will be displayed in a new
     window


           The generation of the Originality Reports for first submissions usually takes a
           few minutes. For second and subsequent submissions of the same paper, the
           report might not appear for at least 24 hours.

     For more information, please refer to the following FAQ

Re-submitting an Assignment

     Some lecturers may allow students the ability to overwrite their previous submissions
      until the due date and time set for the assignment.
     Re-submitting an assignment is handled in an identical manner as a first time
      submission to an assignment.
     Re-submissions will completely overwrite the original submission. Note papers can
      only be re-submitted until the assignment due date.
     If the setting to allow late submissions after the due date is turned on, only students
      who have not yet submitted a paper will be able to submit.




                                           09/10                                  Page 2 of 6
Interpreting the Report
An Originality Report does not detect plagiarism, it provides a summary of matching or
similar areas of text found in a submitted paper.

      The paper shown in the Originality Report is fully formatted and contains any images
       and graphs included in the original document.
      The Originality Report icon shows a percentage and a corresponding colour
       indicating on an index where this percentage falls in terms of matching content. This
       percentage is the overall similarity index.


The overall similarity index and the corresponding colour scaling of the icons provides a
basic indication of how much information contained in a specific submission is matched to
other sources in the Turnitin repository. The possible similarity index percentage ranges are
linked to a corresponding colour:

       Green           (single word – 24% match)
       Yellow          (25 – 49% matching text)
       Orange          (50 – 74% matching text)
       Red             (75 – 100% matching text)

The Originality Report is separated into three main areas:

Document viewer frame - shows the Overall Similarity Index for the report and the title and
author of the paper
Paper text - the submitted paper text in its original formatting. Matching text is highlighted in
a colour that corresponds to the matching source listed on the right side of the Originality
Report
Matching sources/sidebar - the list of matching sources for the highlighted areas of the
paper text to the left.




                                              09/10                                   Page 3 of 6
Primary Source View
The default view is Primary Source View. This show highest matches together and lists of
all areas of the paper which have similarity to information in the Turnitin repository. Matches
are colour coded and listed from highest to lowest percentage of matching word area to the
submission.


Direct Source Comparison
Direct Source Comparison, allows a user to quickly compare matching text to the source of
the match in the Turnitin repositories.

To view match content:

      Click on a highlighted area of text on the left hand (student paper) side
      A pop-up window will appear above the highlighted text displaying the matching text
       within the source of the match. Click on the Expand to Full Text link in the top right
       of the pop-up window to view the Full Source Text within the sidebar




   
       If the source you are viewing contains multiple segments of matching text, you can
       navigate between segments using the up/down arrows. The text in the paper will
       automatically line up with the source for easy comparison
      To view matching text, select the link listed at the top of the sidebar. It will display
       matching text from a web source in its original web context
      When you have finished viewing a source, return to the list of matching sources by
       clicking the close link




                                              09/10                                     Page 4 of 6
Excluding quoted or bibliographic material

      If quoted or bibliographic material is highlighted as similar or matching, this
       information can be removed from the report.
      You are only able to remove quoted or bibliographic material for the duration of the
       current view of the report.
      Permanent exclusion of this information can only be handled by your lecturer.
      To exclude Quoted or Bibliographic material, select the Filter and Settings icon from
       the sidebar.




      Check the relevant box to exclude options


Printing or Downloading Reports

      The Originality Reports can be printed or downloaded to provide a physical copy or
       saved to your computer to retain an offline copy of the results.
      Select the print icon at the bottom of the Originality Report. This will prepare a
       readable, print-friendly version of the Originality Report.
      When printing, the print version created is based on the view mode of the Originality
       Report currently open.
      A copy of the Originality Report can be saved in a HTML format to your computer or
       a connected data storage device.
      To download or save a copy of the Originality Report, click the download icon at the
       bottom of the Originality Report




      For more information, please to the following FAQ

What percentage matters?
A low percentage indicates a low incidence of matching text. A low percentage may
indicate:
     Low use of direct quotes: Good academic writing does not rely heavily on the use of
      direct quotes
     Use of paraphrased or summarised text: Make sure that all the sources you have
      used, including ideas etc have been acknowledged accurately

A high percentage of matching text may indicate:
      Relying too much on direct quotation
      Cut and paste from sources



                                             09/10                                    Page 5 of 6
The percentage of original writing will vary depending on the type of writing and the subject
area involved. It is important to use your own academic judgement in each individual piece
of work. In order to avoid any possibility of plagiarism, ensure that you write original work of
each assignment you submit. Ask yourself:

       Have I written an original piece of work?
       Have I clearly acknowledged all of my sources
       Are my sources in my reference list?
       Has any work in this assignment already been submitted to Turnitin?


What do I do with matching text?

The possible sources of matching text must be carefully examined to determine whether you
have correctly cited the source or whether the matching text is likely to be plagiarism or
merely commonly used works. Consider paraphrasing or summarising the text.

  • 3. Interpreting the Report An Originality Report does not detect plagiarism, it provides a summary of matching or similar areas of text found in a submitted paper.  The paper shown in the Originality Report is fully formatted and contains any images and graphs included in the original document.  The Originality Report icon shows a percentage and a corresponding colour indicating on an index where this percentage falls in terms of matching content. This percentage is the overall similarity index. The overall similarity index and the corresponding colour scaling of the icons provides a basic indication of how much information contained in a specific submission is matched to other sources in the Turnitin repository. The possible similarity index percentage ranges are linked to a corresponding colour: Green (single word – 24% match) Yellow (25 – 49% matching text) Orange (50 – 74% matching text) Red (75 – 100% matching text) The Originality Report is separated into three main areas: Document viewer frame - shows the Overall Similarity Index for the report and the title and author of the paper Paper text - the submitted paper text in its original formatting. Matching text is highlighted in a colour that corresponds to the matching source listed on the right side of the Originality Report Matching sources/sidebar - the list of matching sources for the highlighted areas of the paper text to the left. 09/10 Page 3 of 6
  • 4. Primary Source View The default view is Primary Source View. This show highest matches together and lists of all areas of the paper which have similarity to information in the Turnitin repository. Matches are colour coded and listed from highest to lowest percentage of matching word area to the submission. Direct Source Comparison Direct Source Comparison, allows a user to quickly compare matching text to the source of the match in the Turnitin repositories. To view match content:  Click on a highlighted area of text on the left hand (student paper) side  A pop-up window will appear above the highlighted text displaying the matching text within the source of the match. Click on the Expand to Full Text link in the top right of the pop-up window to view the Full Source Text within the sidebar  If the source you are viewing contains multiple segments of matching text, you can navigate between segments using the up/down arrows. The text in the paper will automatically line up with the source for easy comparison  To view matching text, select the link listed at the top of the sidebar. It will display matching text from a web source in its original web context  When you have finished viewing a source, return to the list of matching sources by clicking the close link 09/10 Page 4 of 6
  • 5. Excluding quoted or bibliographic material  If quoted or bibliographic material is highlighted as similar or matching, this information can be removed from the report.  You are only able to remove quoted or bibliographic material for the duration of the current view of the report.  Permanent exclusion of this information can only be handled by your lecturer.  To exclude Quoted or Bibliographic material, select the Filter and Settings icon from the sidebar.  Check the relevant box to exclude options Printing or Downloading Reports  The Originality Reports can be printed or downloaded to provide a physical copy or saved to your computer to retain an offline copy of the results.  Select the print icon at the bottom of the Originality Report. This will prepare a readable, print-friendly version of the Originality Report.  When printing, the print version created is based on the view mode of the Originality Report currently open.  A copy of the Originality Report can be saved in a HTML format to your computer or a connected data storage device.  To download or save a copy of the Originality Report, click the download icon at the bottom of the Originality Report  For more information, please to the following FAQ What percentage matters? A low percentage indicates a low incidence of matching text. A low percentage may indicate:  Low use of direct quotes: Good academic writing does not rely heavily on the use of direct quotes  Use of paraphrased or summarised text: Make sure that all the sources you have used, including ideas etc have been acknowledged accurately A high percentage of matching text may indicate:  Relying too much on direct quotation  Cut and paste from sources 09/10 Page 5 of 6
  • 6. The percentage of original writing will vary depending on the type of writing and the subject area involved. It is important to use your own academic judgement in each individual piece of work. In order to avoid any possibility of plagiarism, ensure that you write original work of each assignment you submit. Ask yourself:  Have I written an original piece of work?  Have I clearly acknowledged all of my sources  Are my sources in my reference list?  Has any work in this assignment already been submitted to Turnitin? What do I do with matching text? The possible sources of matching text must be carefully examined to determine whether you have correctly cited the source or whether the matching text is likely to be plagiarism or merely commonly used works. Consider paraphrasing or summarising the text.
