1 Introduction to Turnitin Centre for Teaching and Learning University of Limerick, Ireland [W] Updated Sept 2011 by Angelica Risquez 1

2 Overview Types of assignments and originality check Case scenarios and teaching advice Using Turnitin with Sulis Using Turnitin on its own Originality report Grademark Peermark 2

3 Turnitin Overview 3

4 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. Types of “Assignments” 4

5 It determines the congruence of text to sources in: Publicly accessible Internet sources Every document already submitted to Turnitin* Assignments from within the class Originality Check * Lecturers can opt out from Turnitin storing papers. Only the lecturer can access the submitted paper. 5

6 Allows for citation verification and quickly provides documentation of alleged plagiarism Detects rewording Both lecturer and students can upload It allows for peer to peer plagiarism detection It dos not search subscription databases (e.g. Library databases, newspapers, etc) unless those materials also appear in assignments previously sent to Turnitin. It does not differentiate between quoted materials and original writing! PROS Originality Check CONS 6

7 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? 7

8 Use it proactively Notify and explain to your students Clear plagiarism policy: definition, avoidance, guidelines and disciplinary process. Help students develop writing skills. Writing Centre Train and support students (e.g. trial submission) Involve students (e.g. submit themselves) Be creative! (e.g. using originality report in tutorials, peer review and online grading features, allowing multiple drafts of an assignment…) Teaching advice 8

9 UL resources (Appendix 5: Plagiarism at College by Prof Sarah Moore) pdf (Library online tutorials on Harvard referencing style, Refworks, researching with the internet, etc). Other resources The Turnitin blog Teaching Advice (2) 9

28 28 Peermark 8:23 Allows students to read, review, and evaluate one or many papers submitted by their classmates. Instructors can choose whether the reviews are anonymous or attributed, decide if students should be excluded from reviews, pair students, and assign students specific papers to review.

29 29 Peermark (2) Create new assignment as in slide 13, and select PeerMark Assignment (can only be created if a class has at least one paper assignment created) Note: the due date of the base assignment must come before the start date and time of the PeerMark assignment. If anonymity in the review is desired, student submissions should not contain the name of the author in the text or at the top of the paper The start date is the date students can begin reading papers and writing reviews. The due date prevents students from writing reviews after this date. The post date is the date students will have access to reviews written by their classmates By default, reviews are anonymous and only those student who submit can review, but you can change it in “Show more options”

Instructors may grade the reviews written by the students
