2 Introduction Dudley College applied to take part in this programme to support the curriculum staff, in determining the effectiveness of electronic plagiarism detection software in identifying plagiarism in student assignments..

3 Additional Benefits Allowed the College to Demonstrate Academic Rigor for QAA Inspection Purposes.Allowed the College to Demonstrate Academic Rigor for QAA Inspection Purposes. Enabled the College to Assess the use of such software, for use alongside our current ILT provision.Enabled the College to Assess the use of such software, for use alongside our current ILT provision.

4 Methodology In this exercise, Students handed their work to their Tutor on Disk, and these Disks were then sent to the ILT manager who uploaded them onto the Software. If we were to operate this system live across the whole College, then we would probably train students to upload to their tutor automatically.In this exercise, Students handed their work to their Tutor on Disk, and these Disks were then sent to the ILT manager who uploaded them onto the Software.

5 Results. 40 Disks returned. Extensive Web Use on Two HND Students. No Use by NVQ/GNVQ Intermediate Engineers.40 Disks returned. Extensive Web Use on Two HND Students. No Use by NVQ/GNVQ Intermediate Engineers. No evidence of extensive Plagiarism.No evidence of extensive Plagiarism.
