Turnitin report

Dear All,

Please note that in future when you submit an assignment over Moodle you will now have access to your Turnitin similarity report.  We have discussed this change with your academic reps and they thought that it would be helpful to students to be able to see the report. 

Turnitin is a piece of software which checks what you have written for any word for word similarities with previously published material.  Being able to see the report should therefore be helpful to you in avoiding plagiarism – but you do need some guidance on how access and interpret the report.  I have attached the information that you need.  Please download this and not only read it but also keep it somewhere safe so that you can consult it next time you submit an assignment. 

 

It is not compulsory for you to read the Turnitin report – but we do advise it.  The markers will consult Turnitin as part of the marking process.

 

Best wishes

 

Judith
