The Lane intro...
What are the rules?
The Lane is where you will find everything you need regarding your programme of study. You will have access to your programme handbook and module handbooks, assessments, announcements, academic calendar and lecture notes. The homepage has 9 tabs at the top that will navigate you around. The main tab you will be using is 'Academic Year 2017-18.'

Plagiarism is the presentation of work by a student, (written, visual or oral) which is wholly or partly the work of another. It also extends to cover own work previously assessed which is also required to be referenced. Taking unfair advantage over other authors, students or oneself in this way is considered by the THF to be a serious offence. THF will take serious action against any student who plagiarises whether through negligence, foolishness or deliberate intent. Make sure written material, ideas, theories, etc are acknowledged through the use of quotation marks, references and citations.


When you click on 'Academic Year 2017-18' you will then be directed to a page that looks like the image to the right. Scroll down until you see the module you are looking for. Alternately you can type the module you are searching for into the search bar then click on the module title to open the module section. You must be logged in to be able to access the module content.
When you click on the course you want to view, you will see this page. Each course has a folder for Module and Assessment Info and then the remaining folders will all contain your weekly lecture notes and resources. Click on the links to access.
Turnitin is a plagiarism software used for your assignments submitted online via The Lane. Turnitin is a good tool for you and us to determine if you have used too much information/text from the internet in your work. Turnitin is also a feedback tool. When you submit Turnitin assignments, you will get your feedback online in the form of general and in-text feedback as well as a grade.
Where will you find the extenuating circumstances form?
Who are the QAA and what do they do?
Where will you find job opportunities?
Who issues your degree certificate after you graduate and when will you receive it?
Describe the 20 point grading scale and where you will find this on The Lane?

At THF, we use software called Turnitin which automatically scans all submitted work against previously uploaded information on the internet. When you submit a draft assignment you will see your ‘originality’ score which will tell you how much you have copied from online sources. Any source that is copied more than 10% is considered unacceptable and warrants academic misconduct. Information on the correct way of acknowledging work from other sources is also available on The Lane.

Academic misconduct also covers cheating in examinations and practical assessments

Referencing Quiz.

If you still feel you need help with referencing or plagiarism and would like some help with specific assignments, please bring it along with you and we can go through it together.

At the end of the lesson we will do the quiz which is part of your graded assessment for the module!

When uploading an assignment you will see this screen...
Put an appropriate title e.g. Assignment A and click and drag the essay into the submission box.
Once successfully submitted you will get a receipt that looks like this...
2 weeks after the deadline has passed you will receive feedback via Turnitin that will look like this...
If you click on "Originality" (the tab with a red number) it will show you the break down of copied sources from the internet... E.g...
This assignment has a 35% originality score meaning 35% of the work has already been submitted previously.

By looking at the Match Breakdown you can see that 9% matches a source called journals.lww.com. By clicking on the information in the text we can find out exactly where it was copied from...
You can also see a breakdown of smaller matches of 2, 3 and 4%. These match the reference list and are not a problem.
By clicking on the feedback summary button, you can see general comments about your work. This might include a comment about general grammar or structuring of the assignment or perhaps missing sections etc.
If you hover the mouse over the in text speech bubbles, you will also see specific comments for the yellow highlighted sections within the work. E.g. "needs a citation"...
The last thing to note is your grade. This can be seen in the top right hand corner and is based on the 1-20 point scale.

Please be aware that you will not receive a grade for drafts.
Thank you
