Thanks to those who came to the session earlier today where we introduced Turnitin as a tool for e-submission AND for checking citation/referencing. As a refresher, and for those of you that missed the session, I’ve provided the main resources below.
- Turnitin: a tool for e-submission AND for checking citation/referencing (PDF)
- Interpreting an Originality Report (PDF)
In addition, Turnitin provides online marking, therefore you’ll receive all of your feedback online through the GradeMark feature.
Apologies again for the slight technical difficulties with the Turnitin Originality Reports. Once the server is up and running again, you should be able to return to the ‘Test submission area‘ to view your reports. If you weren’t at the session today why not have a go at the activity of uploading an assignment to receive an Originality Report yourself.
Please remember, Turnitin is a TEXT-MATCHING tool to facilitate your learning and aid you in checking referencing/citations, it isn’t a plagiarism detection tool.
So, have a look at your reports and if you have any questions post them here as comments and we’ll help each other to provide answers.
