2 Turnitin Overview Turnitin offers diverse web-based class management solutions Plagiarism Prevention Moduleactive Peer Review active Online grading active Student digital portfoliosnot available in Turnitin yet

3 What Turnitin Searches It determines the congruence of text to sources in: 1. Publicly accessible Internet 2. Every document already submitted to Turnitin

4 Originality Report Similarity indices: blue less than 20 matching words green 0-24% matching text yellow 25-49% matching text orange 50-74% matching text red % matching text

5 Originality Report

6 Advantages It can identify where numerous words have been added, deleted, or substituted Allows for citation verification Provides documentation of alleged plagiarism Faster and more effective than trying to look for the source yourself in a search engine Both lecturer and students can upload It allows for peer to peer plagiarism detection

7 Disadvantages It is not infallible. For example: it doesn’t identify plagiarism from a source not available on line has problems with mathematical formulas Is not that reliable with PDF files It distorts the format of the original documents: tables, graphs, and images don’t appear It fails to properly differentiate between quoted materials and original writing!

8 Possible Scenario A lecturer (or student who has access to it) receives an originality report showing a match for the 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 find that the text is found in an on-line article, entitled The Death of “e” and the Birth of the Real New Economy. Is this plagiarism or a false positive? Why?
