Transcript of Turnitin

How do I use it? Set up in Learn's Assignment tool Download-mark-return assignments Interpreting the results Carrot or stick?
Is Turnitin a cheat catcher - or a teaching tool? Turnitin - The Essentials Turnitin is a web based plagiarism checker.

It checks submitted essays against a large number of sources and databases
- including ones Google cannot see.

It keeps submitted student essays and checks against these for copying.

Set up an assignment
Students write assignments
Collect the assignments as a zip file and upload
Wait for Originality Reports
Check for high scores Valid file types are MS Word, Acrobat PDF, Postscript, Text,
HTML, WordPerfect (WPD) and Rich Text Format.

NOT MS Works or Publisher. Turnitin produces an Originality Report Students submit their essays and see a report Students can submit a revised essay if you allowed this. They must delete the unwanted versions then click "Send for marking" to make the final submission. What is a bad rating? 10%? 80%?
No set rules, TII is not a guaranteed "lie detector" or "speed camera".
